Is there anything greater than sitting with your best friend, (or you mama, grandma, godmother or anyone special) and sipping on champagne and eating scones? We think not! Scones, champagne and cakes are a perfect way to spend a few hours on the weekend.

A few weeks ago we had the privilege of eating and drinking the afternoon away at the Brisbane Marriott High Tea. Oh-so-fancy and oh-so-fabuous! Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, wedding, baby shower, birthday or just after a lovely way to thank you friend, the Brisbane Marriott’s High Tea is the perfect opportunity to feel oh-so-speical. I took my bestie along and we commenced the afternoon sipping on bubbles!

The last time I was in Italy was nearly ten years ago. While that actually seems like a lifetime ago; I feel that spending five weeks in the country makes me an expert. Ok not an ‘expert-expert’ but more like a I-have-actually-been-to-Italy-so-I-can-write-about-Italian-food expert #youfeelme? So this brings me to Prova Pizzeria.

posted by Emmy O'Neill March 30, 2017 0 comments

‘Umami (/uˈmɑːmi/), or savoury taste, is one of the five basic tastes (together with sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness).’ Thanks to George, Matt and Gary (aka those Masterchef boys) Umami is part of our food vocabulary, but I still found myself unable to describe Umami; instead just going with ‘it is Umami.’

Umami is not only the mysterious fifth taste; it is also the name of one of Brisbane’s tastiest restaurants located at the top of the China Town Mall, Fortitude Valley. Umami Bar & Asian Tapas isn’t the new kid on the China Town block but it has had a menu and venue makeover and it is fabulous.
