 For Mother's Day this year and coinciding with The Sound of Music's 50th Anniversary, @interconmel and @20thcenturyfox will be hosting a beautiful The Sound of Music Champagne High Tea for 3 consecutive weekends! How wonderful it is go walk to a table filled with "brown paper packages tied up with string"! The glasses of G.H. Mumm Champagne also were key to the bubbly feeling #geddit #mothersday To find out more, follow the link on my profile page! #intercontinentalmelbourne #SoundofMusicHighTea #SoundofMusicBluray  Breakfast time! Okay, so I'm still lying in bed, but it's the last sleep-in I'll be having for a while. We've got 4 days to go to Japan, so here's a Japanese inspired dish from @walkdontruncafe. Mindful eating at its best  Chilled Organic Green Tea Soba served with poached chicken, green beans, nuts, seeds and tahini ponzu dressing. So delicious! #walkdontruncafe #organic #mindfuleating #soba  Now that @zeboy has posted it, I can share this too! One of my favourite plating by him this year which was not only super delicious, but so beautiful to look at too! Duck in Plum Powder, Satsuma, Quandong, Confit Leeks, Asparagus, and sauce made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes! Yum!! #homecooking #zeboycooks #madchefgaz
 So proud of my man @zeboy for being featured on @buzzfeed as the #3 person on Instagram to follow for food  Thanks @rachelfurolo for the recognition! Also featured were my mates @ieatblog and @ironchefshellie  Y'all bloody talented! Link on my profile  #Buzzfeed #instagrammers  Cold? Tired? Hungry? Why not take a visit to either Prahran or Hampton and dine in at La Svolta! We truly enjoyed our meal there (Prahran) a few weeks ago. So yum! I need a pizza. Featured here was a special they had on that day. Homemade squid ink tagliolini with cuttlefish and served with mussels, cherry tomatoes, anchovies, mint and bread crumbs. So good!! #lasvolta #invite #newblogpost  A couple of weeks back, I had no idea what I would bake. All I knew was that I had cream cheese that needed using. So I bought some apples. What happened next was an interesting (and tasty) experimental success! Using store bought pastry (cause some days I cbf too), I decided to bake a tart. I started out with blind baking the pastry, the slathering on a layer of salted caramel (thank you @burchandpurchese). Next I toasted some slivered almonds and topped up the layer with almond meal. I cooked the Granny Smith apples as I would for an apple pie filling, and once cooled, added it onto the tart. I then made a whipped cream cheese topping and let the tart set in the fridge. Before serving, I whipped up a batch of cream and drizzled on more salted caramel. It was a delicious mess. I dub it "Apple Pie with a wicked twist"  #msihuabakes
