Boon Tat Satay Market

Each night as the sun sets in amongst a concrete and glass jungle we call Singapore, a busy little street known as Boon Tat hosts a fabulous evening street party.  The lines of cars are replaced with plastic tables and stools, and the wooden caravans open their shutters, to reveal their BBQ’s and delicacies. As…

Patong Street Food

Phuket and indeed Thailand have a very strong culture of street food.  Most vendors have their shops built around a motorbike which helps them to bring their business to their customers. Others will set up on a regular street corner and serve their specialty dish for the locals to come to them.  For us this…

Foodie Photo Friday

This time coming to you from Singapore… Satay from the Boon Tat Street Market where it’s all about BBQ satay

Morsels from Thailand

Currently Mr G and I are relaxing in Thailand so the kitchen is gathering in mothballs. The upside is that I’m sharing a lot of my foodie moments on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. If you love to drool vicariously through others then you might like to follow us on one of these formats to keep…

Helen’s Greek Eggplant Bake

A few years ago I was fortunate enough to be asked to host a group of travel agents on a trip to the Greek Islands.  Tough gig I know!!!  I’d never been to Greece and I think I’m pretty safe in saying that it was a bit of a major milestone in my travel career…

Sharing some of New Zealand

A non-foodie post today for a change just because I can.  I had the priviledge of being able to visit New Zealand this month with my family for a very special lady’s 90th birthday.  I wanted to share with you some of the amazing sights I saw along the way.

7 Swedish Flavours that I’ve Fallen in Love With

Sweden is probably not really known for its food.  It’s beautiful people, its tennis players, and its cars; yes… food not so much.  But for me some of my fondest memories of Sweden are around food and every time I recreate the dish it evokes great moments from my time spent in this Nordic country….

a little piece of inspirations and memories…

A small non-food related post … Some of you may remember and have followed my blog inspirations and memories last year and I have some good news… After 12 months of editing (and a few technical glitches) I’m proud to say that this is published on Blurb and ready for purchase for anyone that might…

A foodie’s view of Bali

About 3 years ago I took my second holiday to Bali.  The first time round I had been fortunate to go with work, but it had been a few nights in Kuta Beach, which wasn’t really my style.  This time around I travelled with my foodie friend Tui, and we choose to stay in Ubud,…

Why Everyone Should Travel….MS. Galileo’s Greek Tzatziki

My experience of Greece, or more particularly the Greek Islands, was one of a homecoming.  I don’t have a family back ground from the Mediterranean, but it certainly felt like I did, the way I was literally buzzing my way around the place, feeling like I’d been Greek in another life.  The food, the history,…

One of my favourite places on earth

I moved to Adelaide back in the mid 2000’s to work for a year.  I ended up staying for five, and one of the major reasons I’m sure, is because of the food. For me the ultimate source of great produce was the Adelaide Central Market.  Four years on, and two cities later and I…
