Sydney Night Noodle Markets

People come from far and wide to visit the night noodle markets in October and I was lucky enough to just scrape through on the last night. Naturally because it was the last night, it was pretty packed. We had thought ourselves lucky when we arrived and it wasn’t too bad but we still couldn’t find a seat. Luckily we hijacked a couple of chairs from a friend of a friend and sat there until the rest of our party arrived and then migrated to a nice grassy corner with a great view of the dragon show. When you go to the noodle markets you really need to devise a plan of attack before you even think of getting up to move. As it was still reasonable early (5:20ish), we got our priorities in check and headed straight for the bar, then a little look around for some appetiser...

Hands On cooking class @ Altitude, Sydney

Saturday morning for me was not unlike a 4 year old on the morning of Christmas eagerly waiting for her parents to wake up and shower her with gifts.

SIFF Let’s do Lunch @ Coast

Ahhhh school holidays. The time when the trains are invaded by screaming teens, the city is rife with groups of children visiting the big smoke and parents everywhere are screaming to their children “Don’t touch that! Get over here!”. The plus side to this time for me is that two friends of mine teach kindergarten and therefore are off work for a bludgy two weeks so we decided to meet for lunch to take advantage of the Crave food festival and also just for a good chit chat. After scouring the SIFF website for what seemed like hours, we decided to go to Coast for their Scallop Ravioli with a braised leek and sorrel cream. When we arrived we were seated and given the regular menu. We asked the waitress about the SIFF menu and she said “oh its ravioli”. Not wanting to order the incorrect thing, we asked...
