 Dumplings so colourful and cute. We can't ever go past the normal XLBs or the Chilli Wantans either at DTF! . . #thiscouldbebreakfast #sohungrythismorning  As we sat down to enjoy our treats from @bibelotsouthmelbourne the other day, a group of family past us by, looked at us and grinned. . . Only because they were seated with us at the communal table @chezdrecafe moments before and had seen us eat a massive breakfast!  #livingthelife #bibelotsouthmelbourne  Today @zeboy and I finally got to try the XLB gems @dintaifungaustralia which were never available on weekends in Melbourne. I have to say, I much prefer the normal XLBs but, the cheese flavoured one really is quite addictive! . . #dintaifung #dumprings #dumplingdream
 Completely and utterly burnt out from work. I could literally go to sleep for a week and wake up to donuts from @shortstopmelbourne . . Alas, that would be a heavenly dream and it's only Tuesday. 3 more days until the weekend!! . . Flavours here were Apple Pie, Coconut Lemon Meringue, Burnt Caramel and Fennel, Cookies and Cream and Maple and Sea Salt Cruller   At yesterday's #WaffleParty, @ieatblog brought along some of @flourandstone's baked treats! Huzzah for us poor Melburnites who are too far from Nadine's Wooloomooloo store for a daily/weekly visit ☺  Top shot of @zeboy's Edible Terrarium  . . #zeboycooks #madchefgaz #finediningathome #TestClub

 Homecooked: Edible Terrarium. This was my 2nd time making it. The first time I made it was for the #testclub 7 course degustation meal and I just knew I had to tweak it. I've increased the level of spiciness 'slightly' to help offset the saltiness/brininess from the sea herbs especially the samphires. I also added Ikura for some pop-in-your-mouth factor and edible flowers to give the dish some life. Overall, I'm happy with the balance of flavours and will be attempting a dessert version soon enough. I'm just toying with some ideas at the moment. We might just call this the Terrarium Series. #zeboycooks #homecooking  #zeboycooks #behindthescenes Building an Edible Terrarium: Top down shot of ingredients, centrepiece and terrarium glasses. #testclub  #zeboycooks #behindthescenes Building an Edible Terrarium: Sea Herbs used - Sea Spray, Samphire, Seaweed Streamers, Beach Bananas. The sea sprays were my favourite. Just a perfect balance.. not too briny and good crunch. #testclub
 #zeboycooks #behindthescenes Building an Edible Terrarium: Layering the base with my amped up Spanner Crab Rillette (Spanner crab, creme fraiche, double cream, pickled gherkins, cayenne pepper, togarashi, fleur de sel) and continued with a layer of Edible Soil (dark rye bread, dehydrated black olive soil, brown sugar). Lastly, we finish off with "planting" the sea herbs, micro herbs, broccolini, mushrooms, edible flowers and ikura and with a little leek ash dusted over. #homecooking p.s.: Terrarium purchased from @westelmaus @westelmchadstone & @westelmchapelst  #zeboycooks #behindthescenes Building an Edible Terrarium: Mise en place. Edible Flowers, Micro Herbs, Broccolini, Samphire, Sea Spray, Beach Bananas, Pea Shoots, Shimeji Mushrooms dusted with leek ash, Seaweed Streamers, Red Coral, Endives. Some cooked, some raw. #testclub  #zeboycooks #behindthescenes Fresh Seaweed Streamers .. extremely beautiful to look at but a pain in the butt to clean off the dirt. I'm stoked that there are producers that make these available to the public.
