If You Like Rum…

posted by Michaela Petrofes July 24, 2015 0 comments

Last week the Antarctic Vortex was in full swing and we certainly felt the chill deep in our bones. In perfect unison with the chill was the launch of The Breakfast Creek Hotel’s newest addition to their rum family: Substation No.41 Rum to keep us warm on even the chilliest of nights!

Substation No. 41 Rum Bar opened it’s doors 3 years ago and is now the largest rum bar in Australia with over 500 rums from 50 different countries in their rum library. The bars newest addition is a sweet and spicy combination that has been aging in oak barrels right here in Queensland and is now ready to dance on your tongue as you welcome in the weekend. The sweetness of the rum comes from the combination of vanilla, cream, plum and toffee with the addition of pepper for that spicy kick.

Throughout the night we nibbled on an array of canapés that were accompanied by a presentation of Substation No. 41 Rum, a tasting of the rum and 3 delicious cocktails – the Summer Storm, Rum punch and an Orange Mojito! Our favourite of the night was the Rum Punch, with it’s summer flavours and fresh vibe making us forgot about the cold snap we were caught up in and instead shifted our drams to warm summer days.

Thank you to the staff at Breakfast Creek Hotel and Substation No. 41 Rum Bar for allowing us to escape the winter chill and be transported to a warmer place with your delicious rum, if only just for the night.

Having a girl’s night in with a few cocktails never sounder yummier and couldn’t be easier to do with these easy recipes featuring Substation No. 41 Rum! Here’s what you’ll need:

Summer Storm: 41 Rum, Ginger beer, Ginger, Lime and Fresh Mint

Rum Punch: Orange, Pineapple, Orange and Pineapple Juice, Sugar Syrup, Fresh Lime Juice and 41 Rum

Orange Mojito: Orange, Lime, Sugar Syrup, 41 Rum and Fresh Mint

Enjoy!

Where? 85 Miskin Street, that’s where!

posted by Joanna Fraser July 24, 2015 0 comments

Who knew that ensconced within the, let’s face it, rather dull streets of suburban Brisbane lies an unassuming and very special beacon of fine dining.

85 Miskin St, the brainchild of the very passionate owner Brent Farrell, has been dancing across diner’s palates for over ten years. With each plate carefully laid out with innovative ingredients, artful presentation and an astounding level of care, 85 Miskin St is batting with the big guys of the CBD.

Winning a one hat award at the 2014/2015 Good Food Guide awards, 85 Miskin St is known for providing not just a meal, but an experience of sophistication and excellence. The restaurant offers an eight course classic degustation, a popular four course breakfast degustation and a delicious à la carte menu.

And for the rest of the month of July, 85 Miskin st will also be offering a special 10th anniversary degustation that showcases the very best dishes from the last ten years.

The anniversary menu starts with a deliciously savoury wild mushroom cappuccino with a delicate foam, and a seafood bisque with a lick-your-plate rouille sauce. It then crescendos with a perfectly cooked confit duck and a braised beef cheek served with truffle oil potatoes.

The dish of the evening comes last with the  gorgeous black forest floor dessert. A perfectly deconstructed take on a classic black forest cake, a chocolate cannoli perched atop a forest floor of chocolate soil, pistachio moss, and cherry marshmallow mushrooms with mud cake stalks. It was almost too magical to eat.

And the best part is that this fine dining experience is only $60, or $95 with matched wines. With only seven days left of this special anniversary menu, be sure not to miss out.

Miss Bliss Wholefoods Kitchen, West End

posted by Teagan West June 30, 2015 1 Comment

It seems like every week in Brisbane a new cafe opens with swoon-worthy architecture and colourful, fresh bites to eat in a space that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy. It’s one of the (many) things we love about Brisbane, and it just keeps getting better and better.

The new kid on the block is Miss Bliss Whole Foods Kitchen, opening on Wednesday July 1 on Vulture Street, West End. Sound familiar? That’s because owner and qualified nutritionist Jacqui Toumbas has been building the Miss Bliss empire over the last two years on the Brisbane health food scene. What started as a blog with recipes on it evolved into a boutique wholesale brand and market stall and now, Miss Bliss has its very own space!

Within seconds of stepping foot onto the wooden floorboards you can tell it is not just any old space that has been repurposed, it’s an architecturally impressive structure with a sun drenched deck out the back and courtyard full of fresh herbs. What was once Andy’s Fruit Market is now a stunning cafe that you can see yourself returning to time and time again to sit in the sun with friends over breakfast, or on a solo mission with your favourite magazine.

The location is extra special to Jacqui, her family and the Greek community, as it is an ode to her Grandfather and the Greek gentlemen who gathered in the space for 45 years in its lifetime as Andy’s Fruit Market. While the space has been renovated, Jacqui was sure to include a special place for, and a beautiful mural in dedication of, the men who gather there.

So what can you expect from a visit to Miss Bliss Whole Foods Kitchen? Tasty food that makes your insides happy is the focus, with everything made with unprocessed ingredients, no refined sugar, no additives, no artificial substances and with local and organic produce as much as possible. It is healthy, wholesome and nutritionally balanced food done incredibly well, thanks to Jacqui and Head Chef George Diacos (from La Via South Bank). There’s acai bowls, a delicious house-made nut and seed loaf, fresh salads, sweet and savoury bliss balls, a number of eggs and vegetable combinations and a wellness board unlike one you have ever seen. And that’s just the breakfast menu!

So, next time you are looking for a new cafe to sink your teeth into, look no further than Miss Bliss Whole Foods Kitchen.
