Good evening, good morning, good afternoon, ni hao, ciao, bon jour, ca va?... wherever and whenever you are in the world: "Hello!"

My name is Kit Fennessy, and I've been writing this blog with your help for eight 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), and without further ado, let's launch into it.

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

Broadsheet (“Pop-Up” bar and restaurant)

166 Gertrude St
Fitzroy  VIC  3065
HURRY: Open until 2 August

Urgh.  ‘Pop-Up’… I never thought I’d write that without including a back-hander about Gen Y, and cruffins.  But this one is actually pretty good.

You may be aware of a mooted building development on Gertrude St; there’s going to be multi-storey apartments built at the former site of an old hardware/paint store called Manfax.

While the developers wait (there have been several appeals about the size of the intended development), they’ve leased out the old paint shop.  And the result isn’t too bad.

Enter yours truly for lunch today, while the Mrs popped the dog back in the office before joining me.
