UPDATES



Morning coffee dates in Walsh Bay is the perfect way to start the week!

Tuesday night at the Lindt Cafe in Martin Place where chocolatier Thomas Schnetzler demonstrated how to assemble Lindt's newest dessert, the Dome of Decadence.

My Dome of Decadence - flourless chocolate cake base with a chocolate dome hiding a pile of white chocolate ice cream, all finished with raspberry coulee and chocolate sauce. Chocolate chocolate chocolate.

At the Kookai SS13/13 show at the Australian Technology Park - here is the super edgy, super raw, super girl crush Cat McNeil rocking the show.

The final walk through.

Checked out the new menu at The Wedge in Glebe. Rice pudding - oh so perfect.

Afternoon swims at Chinamans Beach.

Backstage at the General Pants show at Sydney Town Hall.

Models backstage.

JUST A QUICK RE-RUN OF MY PAST WEEK.

THIS ONE HAS BEEN ON REPLAY.

THE EAT IN CHIPPENDALE



ALMOST A MONTH IN THE MAKING, I FINALLY SCORED A RESERVATION AT THE EAT IN CHIPPENDALE, A POP-UP RESTAURANT BY THE SUPER TEAM BEHIND FULL CIRCLE. YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD OF THEIR SECRET DINNERS HELD EVERY COUPLE OF MONTHS AT VARIOUS LOCATIONS AROUND SYDNEY. THE WAY THEY WORK IS - 50 PEOPLE, A SECRET LOCATION (WAREHOUSES AND MUSIC STUDIOS IN THE PAST) THAT IS ONLY REVEALED BY EMAIL OR TEXT ONE DAY OR SOMETIMES JUST A FEW HOURS PRIOR.

THE EAT IN CHIPPENDALE IS HELD AT A WAREHOUSE SPACE IN... YOU GUESSED IT - CHIPPENDALE. WITH LAMPS FOR LIGHTS, RAW PLYWOOD BOARDS FOR TABLES AND THE KITCHEN JUST A SPOONS THROW AWAY. MEANING YOU CAN WATCH THE TEAM IN ACTION.

THE EAT IN CHIPPENDALE IS THE BRAIN CHILD OF DAN JOHNSTON - FORMER HEAD CHEF AT VINI, TOM MERRYWEATHER - BOURKE STREET BAKERY AND KRISTEN ALLAN WHO RUNS THE FORTNIGHTLY CHEESE MAKING CLASSES AT CORNERSMITH.
 SINCE THEIR OPENING ON THE 1ST OF FEBRUARY, THE EAT IN CHIPPENDALE HAVE HELD DEGUSTATION DINNERS EVERY THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY WITH A DIFFERENT MENU EACH NIGHT. THE MENU IS REVEALED ON THE DAY FROM THEIR TRUSTY INSTAGRAM AND REVOLVES AROUND WHAT PRODUCE AT THE TIME IS IN IT'S PRIME. 
THE CREW CARE ABOUT WHERE THEIR INGREDIENTS COME FROM AND SOURCE PRODUCE FROM A NEAT RADIUS TO THE LIKES OF FITZROY FALLS FARM (AN ORGANIC FARM IN THE NSW SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS) AND MEAT FROM FEATHER & BONE.


IT'S HARD TO PICK ONE DISH AS MY HIGHLIGHT BUT THE DESSERT I THINK WILL FOREVER BE ON MY MIND. YOU HAVEN'T HAD AN APPLE GALLETTE UNTIL YOU'VE HAD THIS ONE, THAT'S ALL I'M SAYING!

OVERALL IT WAS SUCH A LOVELY EXPERIENCE AND DID I MENTION THAT THIS SITE IS DUE TO BE DEMOLISHED ANY TIME NOW? YEP, SO YOU'LL KICK YOURSELF IF YOU MISS OUT. 
BEST CASE SCENARIO WOULD BE THAT THE EAT IN WILL BE OPEN FOR 4 MORE MONTHS, BUT DO YOU REALLY WANT TO RISK IT?


WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
- BOOK IN ADVANCE AS PLACES ARE SNAPPED UP FAST
- THEY DO CATER FOR VEGETARIANS
- YOU'LL HAVE TO TEXT 0406 525 123 FOR EVERYTHING ELSE

FLEET ILYA









THE MOST RECENT AND BEST DISCOVERY I'VE HAD IN A LONG TIME IS LONDON-BASED LEATHER WIZARDS FLEET ILYA.

IT'S SO HARD TO DECIDE WHAT THEY DO BEST, BUT FOR NOW IT'S SAFE TO SAY I'M IN LOVE WITH THEIR LEATHER VISORS. WE ALWAYS DRESS OUR BODIES IN TERMS OF TOP, BOTTOMS, SHOES AND ACCESSORIES BUT FOR SOME REASON THE HEAD IS SOMETHING THAT ISN'T DRESSED ENOUGH. I PERSONALLY LOVE HATS, HEAD SCARVES, THE WORKS. AND NOW VISORS IS SOMETHING THAT CAN ADD TO THAT LIST.

THEY ALSO DO HIGHLY SCULPTURAL BELTS, BAGS AND HARNESSES.
CHECK IT ALL OUT HERE.
