Wow! For two years now I have been sharing my food journey, which I have loved.
Adelaide, and in turn South Australia, has a wonderful food scene and this is evident in some of the places I have visited.
One of my most popular blog posts was on 21 Junk Street, found in Yankalilla. This is part of a series I am writing after my family and I stayed for a long weekend on the Fleurieu Peninsula. We ate at some amazing places!
Spending time in the Adelaide Hills was a highlight, seeing the change in the season and eating twice at Locavore, where they source their produce within a 160km radius.
And I spent a day in Hahndorf visiting various cellar doors and having an amazing cheese experience at Udder Delights!
In the past year my family also travelled overseas, to Malaysia and Singapore, and I shared some culinary delights from this area of the world. The Durian festival was on in Penang and my husband and I had already tried it many years ago. But we did manage to convince our eight-year-old son to try it – and now he has and probably will never again!
We enjoyed an amazing five-hour food tour of Penang
and ate at Gordon Ramsay’s BreadStreet Kitchen in Singapore.
In Adelaide we’ve had the first Night Noodle Markets, enjoyed some great foodie films at the Adelaide Film Festival, and the sneak preview of Cellar Door Fest
I also enjoyed cocktails at 2KW, Sidewood wines, and the progressive lunch launch of the menu for Variety on King William, plus learning all about olive oil.
I checked out some new pubs, The Mile End, Republic, The Stag, The Publishers Hotel, Lady Burra Brewhouse, Club Tropicana at General Havelock Hotel and The Taxpayer
And some other restaurants; Sukhumvit Soi. 38, Red House Shop and Café, Nourish’d Kitchen, Vietnamese Laundry, Osteria Oggi, The Fleurieu Golf Club’s Eagle’s Nest Restaurant, Bunme.Co, The Middle Store, Jamface by Poh, Burganomix, East of Norman, Carmine and Co and Nonna and I.
I’ve shared a recipe for Thai poached salmon, which is always on our menu at home. And I must work harder at sharing some more recipes!
I also travelled to Canberra for Eat, Drink, Blog – Australian Food Bloggers conference where I met some wonderful like-minded people, learnt a lot about food blogging and ate at some amazing places in Canberra.
I’ve received Laura Cassai’s cookbook, ‘Laura’s Italian Kitchen’, and enjoyed cooking many recipes, with some now a regular feature at home!
I’ve met some wonderful people, passionate foodies, including chefs and restaurateurs, fellow food bloggers and PR people; and I’ve received some lovely feedback from readers.
Thank you all for your support and for subscribing. I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog and I hope it has inspired your taste buds.
And a big thanks to my family and friends, putting up with my constant talk about food, for being taste testers and allowing me to take photos of their food before they eat. My son now asks me if he’s allowed to eat or do I need to take a photo first!
I’m really looking forward to seeing how Adelaide’s food scene evolves in the next 12 months!
Don’t forget you can also follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Zomato and TripAdvisor.
What a good couple of years. Glad that I got to meet you and that this interest is what brought us together. Look forward to many more posts from you
