East Ivanhoe Village Food & Music Fest

Lately I have been spending my evenings drinking tea and designing marketing collateral for the East Ivanhoe Village Food & Music Fest which starts on the 5th of July.

The festival includes a series of culturally-inspired dining events and celebrates the tastes and sounds of the Mediterranean including Little Italy, The Riviera, Spain and Greece. Sounds like my kind of festival!

Check out the East Ivanhoe Village website or visit their Facebook page for more info.

Blog lovin'

My good friend Mel Whelan recently interviewed me and posted it on her blog!! I am truly a blushing teacup now.

Check out the interview here.

Thank you so very much Mrs Whelan. Can't wait to hear how she goes in making my favourite dessert. Pop on over to her blog Bread and Sniff it and follow her journey to becoming the best home-cook known to man.

Happy hookers

The latest craze amongst my workmates at the moment is...... crochet!! And no we are not all 60-year-old nanas, but young, hip and cool girlies who don't want this amazing art to be lost.

So a few of us went to a class at the Wool Baa in Albert Park to learn the basics. Then we got together one Sunday arvo to share our new craft with the rest of the crew. It was a cold wintery Melbourne day, so perfect for a bit of stitch 'n bitching.

Everyone brought along their favourite afternoon tea treat. I made the tasty gingerbread and blue cheese flavour-bombs, Kate, made for our girlie weekend in Blairgowrie. And they were a hit! The best part was that I got to show-off all my teacups and other bits and pieces to the girls.

So now I have the crocheted granny square down pat, I have decided to add them to my peggy square blanket and showcase all my fabulous new skills. Stay tuned.
