A beautiful post by Beck from “In Search of Golden Pudding” about the recent Eat Drink Blog conference in Canberra – she has taken so many great photos! Had to share 🙂
Last month, at Eat Drink Blog, I fell in love with my city all over again.
I first came to Canberra more than 20 years ago in my late teens. I came as a student, from a childhood in the bush, and initially found it very bare and open, with what seemed to be identikit suburbs stretching on forever.
Gradually, as I developed networks of friends and familiar places, it grew on me. I grew to love my tree filled neighbourhood, the birds…the closeness to bushland, shops, and monuments and attractions. In the world of food I loved my local markets, both the big Belconnen Markets, as well as smaller local ones, and as we had children, appreciated a rare night out at some of Canberra’s great restaurants.
Yes I loved all these things, but it was a quiet appreciation, born of long familiarity and I think I took…

What a fascinating post from Serina Huang at Ms Frugal Ears! I had no idea that Dandelions are one of the healthiest superfoods around. She explains: “They are incredibly good for you, in particular they have detoxifying properties that are good for your liver and some extremely good cancer fighting properties. The best time to eat the leaves is very early spring while they are green and tender – once they flower they become bitter. But there is nothing to stop you from eating the flowers themselves”
Lovely overview of Dream Cuisine in Fyshwick by Michele Walton at the Find Eating blog. The crew make the freshest & best croissants in Canberra, due to the fine ingredients and refined method.
Dream Cuisine is a patisserie with purpose! Owen’s ‘Dream’ is to create the finest laminated pastry and perfect macarons.
Not bound by the rules of traditional pastry cooking, Owen encourages his team to explore new ideas, take risks and experiment with different butters and flours to achieve the very best results. (They even source their butter from Naomi in Myrtleford, Victoria who studied butter making in Europe!)
Along with his mum and business partner, Marilyn, Owen has successfully taken their vision to the Hamlet (Little Dreams), Old Bus Depot Markets and the Capital Region Farmer’s Market.
While the Fyshwick location may not be as convenient as more central spots, it gives the team the space they need to work their magic, and is so worth the trip! (The Lavender macaron is amazing!).
Cozy and cute, Grace and Annie make you feel right at home.
The coffee is excellent and there’s…

My friend Dr Gary Lum (From the YummyLummy food blog) has bolted out of the starting barriers and beaten 20 other foodies at sharing our shared bakery experience from a visit to Dream Cuisine Patisserie this morning.

You should also follow Gary and Dream Cuisine (and every single other Canberra foodie) on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
You just have to go to Dream Cuisine Patisserie and Cafe if you want pastry, coffee, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. This is a must do place in Canberra.
As we approach the first ever Canberra BBQ Festival in early December I’m becoming more intrigued by different styles and techniques from around the world. Here is one from South America via British Columbia!
I dropped into Dream Cuisine today for a sausage roll and chocolate croissant – both delicious. I’ll come back and write a more detailed post but in the meantime here’s some delightful words and pictures from the lilyandaoukeatfood blog about Dream Cuisine in Fyshwick!
I love Canberra, its got great food, lovely people, everything and anything is only a 20min drive away, there is no peak hour and the airs cleaner. Outside of the cold, the only thing I miss about Sydney is the cakes, sweets and pastry shops (and family of course!).
At least once I week, I’m sitting at home craving pretty looking pastries and sadly I don’t know many places in Canberra that do good sweets and! Most importantly are open on weekends or open outside of work hours (I’m talking about you Flute Bakery, why do I have to be sick to have delicious baked goods?!) I mean Canberra does have good baked goods e.g. Autolyse, Silo, Cornucopia and etc but I want a place where patisseries come first, all that savoury stuff can come later. I’ve been to Ricardo’s and its nice, sadly I don’t want to just have one place…
