Food! Glorious food!

04 Mar

Ted and I went on a bit of a food adventure day not too long ago and she introduced me to some wonderful gems.

I had been dreaming about going to Burch & Purchese for some time now, so I was very pleased to find myself drooling in their store.

With the delightful aprons worn by the staff, and the free sample of a concoction that involved pistachios with a mango mousse it was a treat to visit indeed!

I quite happily bought a jar of salted caramel spread for future food adventures.

Try and resist the temptation to eat it straight from the jar with a spoon

Our next venture included a trip to the ever amazing Lux Bite for some tea and treats.

My mouth drooled over this delightful caramel slice with miniature salted caramel macarons.

While Ted had a glorious time with a giant hazelnut macaron made from 100% awesomeness.

I happily bought some salted caramel macarons to take home for the eternally ravenous Loch Ness Monster, who was more than happy to nibble away, and enjoy yet another gastronomical wonder provided by magnificent Melbourne.

If you are a Melbourne foodie, or just someone from Melbourne in general, get out and find yourself in one of these stores. Do it now!

    I had one of those teabags just the other day, with the little leaf sticking out of the top on a wire. 🙂

      I have never been so blown away by a teabag before!
      The whole tea set made me smile 🙂

        I was pretty impressed too, I’d never seen one like it before. Apparently they’re made in Scotland, at least the one I had was. Nice tea, isn’t it? 🙂

        It was a lovely tea for sure, and made me feel like royalty!

        That’s how you should feel with a perfectly served cup of tea. 🙂
