They say that the way to a person's heart is through their stomach, which is probably the case-and-point of why we have all fallen so head-over-love-struck-heels for Byron. My personal consensus (I’ve put a bit of thought into this) is that Byron is a foodie paradise, mainly due to the local fresh produce and also the calibre of chefs and restaurants in the area. With around 30,000 residents populating the shire and over 2 million tourists it has a small town mentality of ‘if you don’t produce quality everybody knows about it’ combined with the huge amount of tourist resourcing to justify investing in beautiful fit outs, top notch chefs and industry professionals who are willing to push the limits of cuisine (and just about everything else). Every time I have visited there has been somewhere new to try, so after a glorious day in paradise, what better way to farewell the sun with a great dining experience, from the multifaceted options at your fingertips.Read More
If you love healthy and genuinely good-for-you food Byron is the eating destination of your dreams. Coming here I feel like I can eat decadently and self indulge myself in all of my favourite things to eat and yet feel as light and healthy as ever. It’s a detox for the body, disguised via sustainably produced ingredients, organic everything and a real focus on reducing the nasties like refined sugar. So you are eating yummy but looking after your insides (and your waistline, hallelujah). There is so much diversity here, I would be so surprised if you couldn’t find a cafe that you didn’t fall head over heels in love with - these places live up to their Instagram perfectness. Here are my eight favourite finds to start the day right, whether you are up with the sun or have enjoyed a lazy sleep in, all of which I keep coming back to time and time again.
Without a doubt, brunch is one of my favourite meals of the day and not many cities do brunch quite as well as Melbourne does. These cafes were my favourite finds, for breakfast, lunch or brunch.Read More
It’s no secret I love a good cocktail (or two), so I thoroughly enjoyed working my way through the best bars Sydney has to offer. This city hosts a huge variety of bars, from rooftops to basements and everything in-between, there quite literally somewhere for everyone in whatever mood or vibe you seek. I quickly discovered, most of the best bars are not the easiest to find, hidden away from the casual passer-by and they almost always have a great backstory. Here is a selection of my favourite bars in Sydney.Read More
This nocturnal city beats to a different food clock. The locals usually don’t have breakfast until around 10am, lunch is between 2pm and 4pm and dinner isn’t until after 9pm. For me, a part of diving into the Spanish culture is working to this schedule and having a few strategic snacks so that I can last until 9pm for dinner. The best part is, you don’t have to go to a Michelin starred restaurant to find the best food in Madrid. Wandering the back streets of La Latina, the food halls and the small family run restaurants are the best places to be. Here are a few of foodie highlights from Madrid.Read More
