Puntino Trattoria – Woolloomooloo

November 11, 2012

Woolloomooloo is pretty well known to Sydneysiders as the swanky place by the bay. It’s where Russell Crow lives. It’s where the rich and famous come for a casual dinner in sky high heels. It’s where the rest of us go for a very special occasion dinner, or a work lunch when work’s paying 😉 With my sense of direction, (Stud will read this and I will do doubt get an “I told you so”) its quite easy for me to either not know where I am, walk the wrong way down a street I have been to a million times, or just get lost all together (thank God for my iPhone!). So I was pretty surprised to find out how big Woolloomooloo actually is! Did you know that it goes all the way up Crown Street, almost to William Street? Oh really? Ok maybe it’s just me then....

Ok it may not be new, but my most recent gadget was a housewarming gift for stud and I – a pizza stone! An Avanti Pizza Stone to be exact. Its amazing how something so simple can bring such joy to a foodie. The ease of use, the simple and elegant design and the way it turns my regular pizza into a crisp explosion for the senses. The feel, taste and look of the base after using it is amazing. I was so excited when I used it the first time that I actually sat on the kitchen floor in front of the oven watching it work its magic. Ok, ok, again, its not new and to be honest prior to having it, I wondered what all the fuss was about but now that I have the stone in my life, I know what I’ve been missing!
