La Petite Creperie.

Bonjour mon ami,

If you're still out there, I'm back again with more food.
Uni has started recently so it's a bit difficult for me to find time and write a blog but i'll sure try.


Today I ended up eating a lot of french food, which I absolutely love.
I met up with my two friends for lunch and we ended up at a delightful little creperie in Hardware lane.

I really liked this place, it was really relaxing to eat outside. Unfortunately they ran out of their bread so I couldn't order their Le Croque Monsieur so we ended up ordering a crepe called La Broceliandre. It was French Bechamel, Gruyere cheese and mushrooms with a choice of either prosciutto, ham and turkey in a buckwheat crepe. I chose the turkey.

A lovely golden brown crepe finished off with a lovely cup of French Earl Grey Tea.


Right next door was a macaron place, called La Belle Miete. 

We noticed that there was a really long line coming out of the shop so I thought it might be worth a try.....

We bought 6 macarons, I tried 2, which were flavoured Passionfruit and Milk Chocolate and Pistachio. I absolutely loved the passionfruit flavour, it has a beautiful affinity with chocolate. The other flavours were Pink Grapefruit, Moet and Chandon, Caramel and Pomegranate. 

The macarons were exceptionally well made, they had a good size and  delicate biscuit and a good ratio of biscuit to filling. These are all the qualities I look for in a good macaron.

Even if you're not into sweets, the place has a really cute decor which is worth paying a visit to have a peek inside. 


That's all for now, I'm having a taco night with some friends so maybe pictures of that will be in my next blog.

Au revoir~

Put Your Paws Up!

Hello Readers,


I hope you're all doing well. I've been having a really excellent holiday filled with lots of food and fun.

On the 1st of July I took my sister to the Born This Way Ball, Lady Gaga's concert. It was the most amazing concert I've ever been to, the 5 month wait was WELL worth it.

The stage was incredible and the show was intense! The whole stadium was jumping up and down and dancing. It's hard to believe that Gaga has so much raw talent and theatricality. 


Back to business as usual, I've been eating a lot of food! So here it is....

Camembert Chicken Mignon

Barramundi and Lentils.

We also made a really FAR trip out to Narre Warren where the first ever Krispy Kreme Melbourne is. It was actually pretty cool, I got to see how the donuts are made on this giant conveyor belt. Even though I ate 3...which is the equivalent to eating 3 Big Macs....I regret nothing! They were so warm and sweet!


Speaking of sweet.....My boyfriend and his friend attempted to make this cake last week. It's a passionfruit infused chocolate ganache cake. The recipe is from Heston Blumenthal and it's perhaps the most expensive and difficult cake to make EVER.

The main reason was frosting the cake.....

Other than a blow torch, we needed more power tools to finish the cake. We had to buy a paint spray gun from the local hardware store to frost it. It was well worth it though, the final look and finish of the cake was gorgeous! It was a rich and wonderful cake.


So that's all for now, I'll see you guys next blog. I swear it'll be about something other than food, so keep an eye out!

Finishing with my new red shoes.
