I attended a food blogger dinner at The Dip, an American style restaurant located in GOODGOD Bar. It took me quite awhile to work out where it was since I was looking for The Dip and not GOODGOD but after asking the bouncer I eventually decended the stairs into the eatery.
As there were so many of us we ordered some starters and sides to share including the grilled corn on the cob with lime mayo and chiptole salt and thick cut steak fries with chipotle mayo. Both of these I could eat and were very yummy (chipotle mayo is very popular in Canada More >
I am a sucker for daily deal sites – when living in Sydney I signed up to so many of them. To be honest I did buy a few deals that I probably didn’t need, however I did buy a lot that were very useful. Some people say that buying the food deals makes you go out for a meal when you would usually eat at home. However I would eat out anyway, these deal sites just direct me to places I have never eaten before and never thought of trying.
One of the deals I bought was a voucher for Bamboo Dumpling Bar and More >
If you regularly read my blog then you are probably aware that I love macarons (not to be confused with macaroons – see here). The great thing about macarons is that they are naturally gluten free as the main ingredients are pure icing sugar (as oposed to icing mixture which sometimes contains gluten), egg whites, sugar and almond meal.
A couple of Christmas’ ago a couple of friends and I decided to have a baking day and make macarons to give to friends and family for Christmas. I had been told that macarons were very difficult to make but we all decided we were up to the challenge. Unfortunately the macarons More >
I was lucky enough to be invited to a cooking class for food writers and bloggers last week held by Cheeky Food Group. When I was first invited I wasn’t sure if it I would be able to attend due to my dietary requirements however I was assured that it would be no problem. The director of Cheeky Food Group, Leona, even emailed me on the day to say that the company chefs prefer using gluten free flour as they find it doesn’t clump as easily!
I arrived at Cheeky headquarters in Surry Hills and was offered a choice of wine More >
What happens when you get 25 food bloggers together for Yum Cha? Lots of food, cameras and a $643.40 bill!
I was very excited to be invited along to a lunch with a number of Sydney based food bloggers as I was looking forward to finally meeting the people I read about and follow on Twitter everyday. I was slightly concerned that I wouldn’t be able to eat anything but decided to go along anyway just to meet everyone.
Much to my delight, there was no need to be concerned, I could eat just about everything! The great thing about the Yum More >
When I was first diagnosed with coeliac disease the best advice that was given to me (thanks to my aunt) was to join my local coeliac society. After doing a bit of research about The Coeliac Society of NSW I joined straight away. One of the things that caught my eye were the events that the society run including information sessions (for newly diagnosed coeliacs, or those who wish to update their knowledge) and cooking demonstrations.
I recently attended an Italian food cooking demonstration and not only was it great to learn how to cook a number of Italian dishes gluten More >
