Feliz Natal!

So finally Christmas Eve had arrived! I’d been working so hard in the restaurant so I could finally relax and enjoy the holidays. After a busy lunch service and sweat inducing cleaning, we were closed and ready to party. Myself, my two colleagues and one of their husbands headed on our way to another Brazilian…

Have you had your Poke today?

Hello! So my events job finished and I had the best time working with Achmea! Now I’m working full time with Poke. Our team had grown and we were in a great place, ready for the crazy summer rush! We went out a couple of weeks ago for our Christmas party and boy was is…

Farm2Fork Event

Hey! It was time! All the hard work for the last 5 weeks had all built up to this moment, the Farm2Fork event sponsored by Rabobank.  This event was a place for all contributors to the food and agricultural industries to come together and celebrate all that they have done. I had spent the night…

Happy Halloween!

Good evening… Halloween is my absolute favourite holiday!! I love it all; the costumes, the spooky vibe, the parties, the pumpkin carving and the horror films!  This post is to show you that I even incorporate Halloween into my food! Although I am let down by myself this year as I usually make cupcakes and…

Sydney Noodle Market

Hello!! So once I had managed to settle down in Sydney and find some jobs, I could start exploring the cuisine around here!  My friend from back home in Linlithgow ended up staying in the exact same hostel as me in Sydney, without us even talking about it! So myself, Gemma from home and her…

I Found a job, or two! 

Hey all! Within two weeks of being back in Sydney, I had managed to secure two jobs!  The first was an Events Coordinator for Achmea Australia (a company that provides insurance to farmers) down in Darling Harbour. My role was to facilitate the design and build of a stand for our company, so they could…

Olá Brisbane!

Hello! So we made it to Brisbane; 10 days of driving and living in a car had ended. So had my funds. The reality set in; I needed to find a job and a place to live.  Katherine was lucky and had met a man on her previous travels, so he had sorted her with…

East Coast Road Trippin’

Evening all! So after spending 3 weeks in Sydney eating and drinking waaaay too much, Katherine and I flew to Cairns to begin our road trip.  We stayed in Gilligan’s for a couple of nights (partied again, whoops) and then went on our way to collect our campervan.  Everyone I would like you to meet…

Mmmm Chocolate

Hello! I have a degree in Events Management and nothing gets me excited more than a few days of hype for a certain cause, so when I heard that there was a festival down The Rocks in Sydney celebrating CHOCOLATE, I had to go!  Me, my friend Katherine and our hostel roomie Alex all went…

My First Encounter with Seafood

Hi! Straight off the bat, I absolutely LOVE seafood; crab, squid, langoustines, lobster – give me them all! And if you ask any of my friends, they will whole heartedly say that I will happily spend half my bank balance so I can have a couple of scallops.  Now back to my Aussie adventure, Katherine…

The Daunting First Post!

Hello!  Ahh so it’s finally happening, I’ve decided to follow my love for food and document each and every step of the way! I guess, before I get into all the details, I’ll tell you a little about me! I’m 24, I was born in England and moved to Scotland when I was 11. Life…
