One day I will actually update with proper content, like the good old days that I imagine maybe once existed although they probably didn’t, but in the meantime…
I’ve been at another conference (again) so I’ve been travelling (again) and I want recommendations (again). The city du jour is Melbourne, so your task is: give me amazing recommendations for places to go in Melbourne, now now now! I’m not a newbie to the city, but feel free to recommend freely and wantonly. Accomplished so far this trip are, amongst other places, Trippy Taco, La Belle Miette (I had a Pimm’s & pomegranate macaron and a cherry blossom & saké macaron; dear lord, what fine specimens, perhaps even insouciantly daring to rival the Ladurées I had in Paris), MoVida Next Door and Cumulus Inc.
(Hannah, take for granted that I have thoroughly scoured your Melbourne entries and have already factored multiple recommendations of yours into my schedule!)
In return for your guidance and insight, everyone, I offer a photo of Nigella’s chocolate gingerbread that I made a million years ago. Here’s the recipe.
And I promise to return soonishly to report on a research paper about how dish colour affects perception and enjoyment of food (remember how dish weight affected the same things?). Turns out I’VE BEEN DOING IT WRONG. Stay tuned for the electrifying revelation of how I’ve been shooting myself in the foot for at least two years! Idiot!
