Hallo, Grüß Gott, buongiorno, bonjour and “g’day”.

It’s your old pal Kit (Christof) Fennessy here, just returned from a month long tour of the Alps. I hope (plan) to give each city we visited a review, and pass on any eating tips or associated recipes I gleaned over the coming weeks, as we work our way through winter here.

I've been writing this blog with your help for nine years, and there's over a hundred recipes, restaurant reviews of Australia and around the world, and general gourmet articles in these pages for you to fritter away your idle hours. I hope you enjoy it, and please send me any feedback or suggestions about what you'd like to see herein through the feedback link at the bottom of posts.

Want to know more about me? Friend me on facebook, follow me on twitter, or even look me up on linkedin! (or just read this, and you'll get a pretty good idea, really...)

A big thank you, as always, to my sponsors at Blue Vapours (use them for all your design and advertising needs - we've just returned and are waiting for your call!).

Now, what's on the bill of fare today?

Ricky and Pinky - a Preview

@ Builder's Arms Hotel
cnr Gertrude and Gore Sts

One of the advantages of working next door to a trendy eatery/pub is that you get to see what's happening before everyone else.
The Builder's Arms reopened it's front bar doors last night at 5pm, and I was afforded a preview of the new fit out for Ricky and Pinky, the Chinese restaurant mooted to be opening on Monday 29th August... though you can try your luck with the kitchen now with the bar menu on trial.  See the fitout pics here!
