Melbourne Good Food & Wine Show 2009

The Good Food & Wine Show is one of those events which, when it rolled around, perked my interest a little but had never quite inspired me to get off my arse and attend. It wasn’t that it sounded boring, but to me it was the sort of event where you should really go with […]

Bodega Tapas Bar, and Sydney Foodbloggers

So about a month ago, I got sent to Sydney on a 2 day work jaunt, and decided to take the opportunity to put the call out to any Sydney foodbloggers who wouldn’t mind catching up for dinner while I was in town. Luckily for me, Helen (Grab Your Fork), Suze (Chocolate Suze) and Reem […]

Korean spicy deep-fried chicken

Move over, Colonel and KFC. Your days are through. Why? Because Korean deep-fried chicken is taking your place!

I’ve had a few questions regarding the equipment that I use, even one email accusing me of shooting with an […]

Photography 101 – Sharpshooter

Okay, this week’s installment for the p&s photography series is on how to focus. Now, I’m the first to admit that I am a pure amateur photographer.
