What’s the tastiest ingredient any chef can incorporate into their dishes? In my opinion, it’s nostalgia. It’s the one spice that can take a diner back to what it was like when they were a kid and trying something for the first time, or something they’d eat when they first got home after school or […]

You can always tell how badly your friends have screwed up just by observing the size of the bouquets they were purchasing after work. Sure, some were being proactive and buying nice flowers for the Hell of it but few people splash out for $120 rose collections on random Wednesdays. I once saw a buddy of mine splash […]

If you have a look at what Hollywood is coming up with outside of comic book movies, you’ll be thoroughly disappointed. We have remakes, prequels, sequels, sequels to prequels and movies trying to convince us that Kevin James is a movie star. We also have weird combinations coming up like Godzilla vs King Kong….yes, it […]

Skittle Lane, CBD

Have I ever told you guys about the first time I tried to cook? My mother was in the process of preparing dinner and I nominated myself as her sous chef. By that point in time, I had seen enough cooking shows to build up a false sense of confidence in my budding skills as […]

Kensington Street Social, Chippendale

Once upon a time, being near Kensington meant I was on my way to class. Admittedly, my attendance during my tertiary education was quite low. I was too busy not going to uni to actually go to uni, you’re not going to believe this but my low-attendance methods resulted in two degrees (man, I hope […]

Shortstop Sydney, Barangaroo

My parents were never big on giving me advice, they tend to teach via example. I learned about work ethic from them when they were leaving for their jobs before I woke up, I learned about the value of saving when I saw my mother regularly fish out silver coins that had fallen underneath my bed […]

As I grow older, more and more of my friends are getting hitched. Every day, I see more announcements and photos from a romantic weekend gone by. Nights of drunken escapades, regrettable hook-ups and waking up next to strangers have been replaced with discussions about diamond sizes, honeymoon spots and waking up next to the […]

Left of Field, Rhodes

After getting rejected left, right and centre; I decided to take a break from girls for a while. I think the tipping point was when a girl told me nothing was ever going to happen even though I had never asked her out. I thought that was a bit harsh and went home to cry […]

Butter Sydney, Surry Hills

You’re not going to believe this but I spend a lot of time thinking about food. What should I eat for lunch? What should I have for dinner? What should I eat for tomorrow’s lunch? Those questions are always on my mind along with wondering how in the world I’m going to get my novel […]

Café Cre Asion, CBD

At a certain point, my struggle stopped and my writing changed. I’m very much the Jay-Z of the food blogging community. I came into the game rapping about my struggles and what I had to do to get by. But eventually, I got with Beyonce, my career started taking off and I just couldn’t go […]
