    Madama Butterfly

    Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour presents – Madama Butterfly. Now in its third year it has become one of the biggest events on Sydney’s cultural calendar. Shh let’s keep this on the down low, but it was actually my first opera- and I was a little bit excited. I’m told over 600 staff have worked […]

    Darlinghurst is all kinds of cool, quirky, fun and fresh so it seems appropriate that Talia Smith, founder of The Local Harvest Collective, has chosen Darlo Bar to be the new home for an eight week pop up market. Launching earlier this month, you’ll find the Local Harvest Collective Pop Up on the rooftop garden […]

    5 Things to do in Sydney when it rains

    According to the Bureau of Meteorology and the World Meteorology Organisation, Sydney now beats London for number of rainy days per year. And Sydney people are such sooks about the weather – suddenly nobody can drive, you’re worried about your new suede boots and you’re stuck inside downloading The Notebook and eating your way through last night’s […]

    How To Make Kids Eat Food They Hate

    Like parachute pants, the word ‘dope’ and the perm, food groups go in and out of fashion. And some foods, like Lycra short shorts, were never really in vogue in the first place. According to a study by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Australia, who is celebrating the release of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs […]

    Woodland Kitchen and Bar

    Enter Woodland Kitchen and Bar in Neutral Bay and the first thing you’ll notice is where the name comes from. Long wooden beams hover above head, wooden floorboards below and a large wooden bar steal your focus. If the world were to flood tomorrow this Noah’s Ark is where you’d want to be- a glass […]

5 Dos and Donts at the Races

A day at Royal Randwick is a must on my social calendar each spring and autumn. It’s a great excuse to glam it up during the day with a group of your favourite friends. But, all too often you hear stories of ‘that girl’ who ended up barefoot cuddling an empty bottle of bubbles on the […]

Berowra Waters Inn

There are two ways to get to Berowra Waters Inn. One is by seaplane. The other is by private ferry. Of course there could be other ways. Rubber dinghy, canoe, paddle board and hovercraft are just some of the unconventional alternatives I consider as my private ferry pulls up to the restaurant. It’s a beautiful […]

Say Cheese

A suited waiter with a cute smile placed a glass of chilled Chardonnay into my hand before I even stepped foot into the Opera Café. It was the first sign of a good night to follow. Lea Nguyen, the PR manager from the Intercontinental Hotel, welcomed us to their new  ‘A Taste of Dairy’ themed dining […]

The boys, Gigi and Danny, sure know how to turn on the charm at their new wood fire pizza and tapas bar, Spakka-Napoli. These born and bred Italians have brought a taste of Naples to Neutral Bay and aren’t shy about sharing their passion for eating.

Palings Bar and Kitchen was buzzing with excited guests donning ‘Papi Loves Ribs’ badges and bibs with ‘Talli Papi Syndrome’ branded across them. These bibs came […]
