Pierre Herme vs. Laduree Macarons, Paris

Pierre Herme vs. Laduree Macarons, Paris

Paris macarons are amazing – soft like a marshmallow with no crack into the bite and no transition into the filling. These were delicate things with the tops breaking at the lightest touch. WHAT HAVE I BEEN EATING ALL THESE YEARS? Even the Pierre Her ...

Kinder Chocolate

Kinder Chocolate

Be still my heart … if you’ve been following me on Instagram you can see I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with kinder chocolate. There’s just so much variety in Europe – I MUST EAT THEM ALL. Yes, this may be as bad as my Japanese kit kat obsessio ...

Pierre Herme, Paris

Pierre Herme, Paris

I have been dying to try Pierre Herme’s cakes and pastries (I’ve only tried his macarons in Osaka). I was soooo close to sinking my teeth into his infinite jasmine tart with it stored safely in the hotel fridge in Tokyo. Then bam food poisoning from ...

Postcards from Florence

Postcards from Florence

I don’t know how people could travel for more than a month when 5 weeks had me feeling so burnt. Our itinerary didn’t even stretch us thin but there’s something a bit tiring to be living out of a suitcase. Week 5 (half way into our trip) found us in ...

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, London

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, London

Weighing up the slim chance of getting into the Fat Duck in Melbourne and passing the 2 month mark to book in the UK, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal was the way to go. Holding 2 Michelin stars and ranked number 5 in The Worlds 50 Best Restaurant this ye ...

Postcards from Paris

Postcards from Paris

I’ve heard Paris is one of those places you either love or hate. There is no in between. Lucky for me I fall into the former category and couldn’t resist the charm of Paris – it just oozes sophistication and you can’t help but admire the beautiful bu ...

Sprüngli Luxemburgerli, Zurich

Sprüngli Luxemburgerli, Zurich

I only had my eyes on one thing and it wasn’t their chocolate but their luxemburgerli at Sprüngli – the Swiss version of macarons :) Luxemburgerli are a cute as a button baby macaron that is about the size of a 20 cent coin. The shells themselves we ...

Postcards From Rome

Postcards From Rome

Rome was a city that felt like a city where it wasn’t littered with tourists like in Venice and Prague. The place was filled with beautiful architecture and historic significance – walking around you’ll come across so many ruins randomly. We bought a ...

Postcards from Siena

Postcards from Siena

I think luck was on our side as the Palio di Siena was happening in Siena during the 3 days we were in Florence. This horse racing only occurs 2 times a year and my gosh it was really crazy. Trains were packed and people were waiting in the Piazza de ...

Postcards from Tivoli

Postcards from Tivoli

Day trip to Tivoli that was an hour away from Rome – there was this website that said something about a bus to take you to the center of the city from the train station. Don’t listen to it. We waited about 20 mins and there was no bus T_T Luckily the ...

The Hummingbird Bakery, London

The Hummingbird Bakery, London

The name Hummingbird Bakery is in the same league as Magnolia Bakery which makes me so curious how a cupcake bakery can become so famous? Found some time to drop by the store in Notting Hill which was a take away store (not really eat in friendly as ...

Lola's Cupcakes, London

Lola's Cupcakes, London

London doesn’t ask how, it asks why not. Why not eat cupcakes while you’re shopping? Smack bang in Topshop at Oxford Circus lies Lola’s Bakery with so many beautiful looking cupcakes. Come to mama. I love basic flavours done right – there’s nothing ...

Postcards from Venice

Postcards from Venice

There’s nothing like Venice with canals running through the islands and interconnected together with bridges. I haven’t seen a city that didn’t have any roads and cars so it was a breathtaking sight to see. I lucked out travelling with H because she ...

Postcards from London

Postcards from London

London for me was half amazing and half not. I did the ‘to do things’ recommended by Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor but I was there during peak season where it was super packed with tourists. Some places like Westminster Abbey were crazy expensive ...

Postcards from Prague

Postcards from Prague

Prague is one of the most picturesque place I’ve ever been. It’s like being transported into a Disney movie with their beautiful, fairy-tale buildings. I thought Prague Castle was the thing sticking up on the hill – nope that’s St Vitus Cathedral an ...
