Heston Blumenthal’s eponymous restaurant in Bray (about 40km from London) is known for its whimsical dishes and focus on molecular gastronomy. The restaurant has received a slew of awards over the years – it was named the world’s best restaurant in [...]

Early last year, after hearing positive reports, Provenance in Beechworth was placed on our mutual wish list of ‘must visit’ restaurants. At that time, Saskia was in the final stages of PhD hell, and we decided that we would visit when the thesis was all said and done. Our trip to Beechworth was to be [...]

We recently organised a girls night out to make J’s return to Melbourne after 10 weeks in South America a little more bearable. The brief was somewhere located in the city with good food and great cocktails. Gingerboy was an obvious choice.

Mr M and I were lucky enough to be taken to Coda by S & C as a belated wedding present (thanks!).

Coda serves Asian and French [...]
