Cadbury Fairtrade

I came home today to find a package addressed to me - it was bulky, and when I opened it, guess what I found?

200g of chocolate for me! :)

Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate is now Fairtrade Certified - so you can now feel better about eating that block of chocolate.

Taste of Sydney 2010

I know that the event has been and gone, but I feel it deserves a homage here. 

I enjoyed last year's (even though I got caught in a rainstorm) and I really enjoyed this year's!  The event seemed bigger this year - more spacious and just more variety.

And I spent more than I had planned to, but it is really a great opportunity to taste fantastic food from some of the best restaurants in Sydney...can't wait til next year!  Imagine being able to get a taste of a main for a mere $12!

Highlight was the mini sandwich with with blue swimmer crab and coriander mayonnaise from the Guillaume at Bennelong stall, and the famous wobbly vanilla panna cotta from Jonah's.

Can't wait til next year!

Bathers' Pavillion Cafe

Beautiful venue, stunning breakfast
On a day off, we headed off towards Taronga Zoo to see the 7 month old baby elephant Luk Choi.
This was a perfect excuse to go to the Bathers' Pavilion for some brunch!  What a perfect venue - right on the beach, with the sounds of the waves lapping against the sand.

It was rather grey that day, but it didn't take away from the stunning location.

I love the bright coloured napkins - it's so..happy!
 Eggs Benedict with short bacon and hollandaise sauce
Smooth hollandaise sauce, that was subtle, and not too tart..yum!
Apple filled brioche French toast with cinnamon sugar, ricotta and raisins
Oh, this is how French Toast should be made all the time.  It was divine! 
There was not only the baked apple you see on top of the brioche, there was a soft apple puree sandwiched between two pieces of brioche.
(Although we asked for extra maple syrup, and were told we had to pay $2.50 for the pleasure)
