The truth of the matter is I don’t think I could call myself a Chef anymore, but those of you who remember my last Blog “The Hospitality Guru” know I’m obsessed with beautiful, magical, delicious (get in my belly) amazing food.

I loved cooking and experimenting with flavours and textures and exotic spices, and working with the Chefs who managed to describe most mouth watering, taste tantalising and exquisite food prefixed by a four letter word, until the lure of ‘front of house’ called, and with hardly a backward glance I left behind the noisy frantic guys who run the stainless steel kingdoms.

My love affair with food has morphed into clean eating; Keto with a splash of Paleo produced from locally sourced produce. Even though a rare indulgent fine dining experience is still on my YES list, I find eating tasty foods for fuel is where I am at!

Foodiephiles will take you onto the plates of some of my favourite foods.

Come on in and have a look around, leave some comments, and offer your feedback.

The Lazy Baker’s Guide to Choc Malt Milkshake Macarons

Choc Malt Milkshake Macarons -

Macarons have been on my ‘must make someday’ list for years now. I first saw these magical, airy, delicate, gluten-free (waaaaaay high maintenance & temperamental) meringue mushroom sandwich cookies when I spent an afternoon hanging with Adriano Zumbo (one of Australia’s most celebrated pâtissiers) at the CIT in 2012.  A bunch of up and coming chef and […]
