Welcome!!one!

Hallo, Grüß Gott, bongiorno, bonjour and “g’day”.


It’s your old pal Kit (Christof) Fennessy here, just returned from a month long tour of the Alps. I hope (plan) to give each city we visited a review, and pass on any eating tips or associated recipes I gleaned over the coming weeks, as we work our way through winter here.


I've been writing this blog with your help for nine years, and there's over a hundred recipes, restaurant reviews of Australia and around the world, and general gourmet articles in these pages for you to fritter away your idle hours. I hope you enjoy it, and please send me any feedback or suggestions about what you'd like to see herein through the feedback link at the bottom of posts.

Want to know more about me? Friend me on facebook, follow me on twitter, or even look me up on linkedin! (or just read this, and you'll get a pretty good idea, really...)


A big thank you, as always, to my sponsors at Blue Vapours (use them for all your design and advertising needs - we've just returned and are waiting for your call!).

Now, what's on the bill of fare today?

Heathcote Wine Show

Ah Heathcote!  "Heathy one day, coatey the next," (you can quote me if you like).
Cor blimey, this guy is an unstoppable video blogging machine!  This time he's done a short film about wines of the Heathcote region.  We learn about shiraz, how much one can drink, and the joys of bus travel.
Strap yourself in!  We're in for a bumpy ride!

Stephanie Alexander at the Festival of Ideas

Hello!
I was recently invited to the University of Melbourne's 'Festival of Ideas', where I went to see Stephanie Alexander talk with a panel of experts about her Kitchen Gardens program.
'Boring!' I hear you think.
But nothing could be further from the truth!  It attracted all-sorts, and when I say "all sorts" I am not suggesting for a moment that anyone was handing out liquorice.  No.
In fact, you were much more likely to get a silverbeet tart, or possibly some beetroot dip.
Either that or a knuckle sandwich.
But what's this?  Another video blog!  Hooray!  Click on the link below:
