Food critics wanted to taste surprise menu

To all food lovers and budding critics alike, a Canberra restaurant is serving up a five-course feast so diners can taste and rate new dishes of the season. Sage Dining Rooms is creating their new autumn menu, and they want your help. That means only one thing – Taste & Test is back! During the weeks of Taste & Test, Sage offers a surprise menu of five courses, which are each scored out of ten by diners, and you also score the service and overall experience of the night. I love that the scoring sheet is printed directly onto the paper...

Canberra’s most Insta worthy festival!

The annual Hot Dub Wine Machine festival has been and gone for another year. Celebrating the very best of Australia’s wine regions, the festival travels to different locations around the country. Its formula for success is to combine two things that Australians love: good wine and good music. As the festival demonstrates, these two go hand in hand.  This year, the festival set up in Canberra on the Saturday before Easter, which was the most beautiful and sunny 30 degree day. It was also the last day of daylight savings, which meant that the afternoon stretched on well past...

It was the first Skype interview/ Q&A ever held at Canberra Centre and the first which Miranda herself has participated in. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “How could a Skype Q&A be anywhere near worth going to as the real thing?” In fact, apart from a few minor hiccups, more to do with the internet than anything else, the whole thing went off without a hitch. There were no uncomfortable lag times or...

New meal delivery service a first for Australia

Working in Dickson, it’s all too easy to ‘forget’ to pack a lunch and rather try out a lunch special from one of the many restaurants/cafés in the area. This can be about $13-$15 a day, which quickly adds up over the course of the week, month, and year. I am also the worst at planning my meals – meal prepping is my idea of a nightmare. That’s why when Soulara got in touch asking to try out their meal service for a week, I jumped at the chance. Here’s why you should too. Soulara is a Sydney-based meal...
