  • Sparrow Eating House has been on my radar for awhile, but it has been hard to visit with it being down the Gold Coast. We took advantage of the summer sunshine by hitting the beach several times last month, and I finally got to check them out.

Order homecooked food cooked by your neighbour – FoodByUs launch

Menulog co-founder Gary Munitz launched new startup FoodByUs in Sydney last year, and it’s now finally in Brisbane!

FoodByUs allows vetted passionate local cooks to list their homemade food on a platform. Buyers then select what they want and either collect their order or get it delivered for a delivery fee depending on the location.

FoodByUs have already signed up over 75 Brisbane makers, so there is plenty of choice! Some of the ones I’m already eyeing are:

I’ve already ordered Ugly Food and Co.‘s Beef Rendang and Achar Awak Malaysian Pickle, which will be delivered this Friday. I can’t wait to share how that goes with you!

Word of warning: always check the delivery cost. I’ve found delivery costs can vary widely from $5 to $31.

By the way, if you use this unique code at checkout: MELLR7UV: 

  1. You get $25 off your first order (minimum spend $50)
  2. I’ll earn $25 credit
  3. And I go into a draw to win $500 in FoodByUs credit (which I will share if you let me know you ordered with my code)

Everybody wins!

Brisbane’s free food festival, Regional Flavours presented by The Courier-Mail, is back!

This will be the festival’s ninth year and it is promising to be better than ever, so lock it in your calendar from 15-16 July in South Bank Parklands.

Which celebrity chefs can you expect to rub shoulders with?

  • Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston from MasterChef Australia
  • Miguel Maestre from The Living Room on Network Ten
  • chef and author Tobie Puttock from Jamie’s Kitchen Australia on Network Ten
  • pastry chef extraordinaire Darren Purchese from Burch & Purchese Sweet Studio
  • Brisbane’s own Jocelyn Hancock
  • MasterChef Australia 2015 alumni Georgia Barnes
  • highly-acclaimed indigenous chef Clayton Donovan, who is also Australia’s only hatted indigenous chef

I would also recommend bringing some shopping bags (or even a trolley). With over 80 stalls planned to be at the festival’s Marketplace, you’ll definitely want to bring some goodies home. I am already excited about:

I can’t wait! Will you plan to be there?

Our Disneyland Adventure

Our Disneyland adventure

It has been well over a month since we returned from our Los Angeles holiday, yet I haven’t shared much about it at all.

While I work through which parts to share, there is one part I really MUST talk about: DISNEYLAND.

It is the holy grail of holiday destinations for kids around the world and earned its title of the happiest place on earth. Entry tickets and hotels cost a fortune, but after our visit, I TOTALLY understand why everyone says you need TWO days to enjoy the attraction.

It was an amazing experience with so many surprises!

The biggest surprise was how much we all managed to enjoy the theme park, in spite of dragging along an almost 2-year-old. While the Little Mister might not remember much of it when he gets older, we certainly will remember how much he loved the rides, sights and food at the happiest place on earth.
