Sydney Food Festival 2010

Saturday, October 02, 2010

October is the month in which I attempt to make up for my three-year food blogging hiatus. I'm still eating! I just haven't been blogging about it.

But it's that time of year again. Yes, it's Good Food Month!

Or as the Sydney Morning Herald now likes to call it, the Crave Sydney Food Festival. (And SMH, if you're reading this, the website is seriously sucky -- from the horribly unintuitive URLs to the labour-intensive navigation. Javascript -- Just say no. But I digress.)

This year I'm aiming to knock off at least six Sugar Hits. My record was four in 2007, but that was before the whole thing became a bit of a sport and reservations became the norm.

But this month I'm resolved to beat my previous effort. If I can squeeze in a brunch and a lunch somewhere in there ... and still manage to lose two kilos (long story) ... I'll consider the month a roaring success in the food department.

Watch this space.

Are you ready for Good Food Month?

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

If anything would get me out of my unscheduled food blogging hiatus, it's Good Food Month! Sugar Hits and Let's Do Lunch menus are up on the website. I'm a bit underwhelmed by the desserts on offer--and last year's favourite, the Shangri-la isn't on the list--but lunch is looking very promising indeed.

I'm so excited, I've created a worksheet. Yes. I know.

Update: The Shangri-la was listed under "Lobby Lounge". (The site has been updated since.) But I'm not sure about the licorice infused strawberries.

In which I admit to a heinous crime

Did anyone else see Paul Cookson on Today Tonight last week? Because the segment was so appalling, I'm wondering if I just imagined it.

A little election motivation

Thursday, November 15, 2007

Krispy Kreme (Australia) has an election sweetener for all registered voters. Register on the site, pick your favourite election sweetener--Original John, Sprinkles KEV07, The Greenies, or Lemoncrats--and sign up for the Krispy Kreme newsletter, and you'll get a voucher that can be redeemed for up to 6 Original Glazed doughnuts on Sunday. Even though I've kicked my Krispy Kreme addiction, I'm not averse to a little nibble now and again!
