The Perfect Pair

November 12 2016

I’d always wanted to try brioche ice cream sandwiches after reading about the Sicilian practice of serving warm brioche with gelato for breakfast some twenty years ago. It wasn’t until my second, and fairly recent trip to this fascinating island that I visited a bar in Zambucca, that offered warm brioche and a selection of gelato. I was so excited to finally taste this, and thought it a great idea to have the components on hand for a casual, no fuss day, when anyone might drop in. For me, it’s always about using what’s on hand. I’ve found that the brioche freeze beautifully and I always have a stash of my ice creams in the freezer, as you can imagine! -MB Read the rest...

High Tea In The Barossa

October 19 2016

On Sunday afternoon, Lifestyle FOOD hosted a high tea at the Function Centre to celebrate Season 2 of The Great Australian Bake Off. 120 people travelled to the Barossa for the function, some very far and at a huge expense due to cancelled flights. It was such a great afternoon; the food was lovely, the guests were fantastic, and the band just fabulous. Kerrie McCallum hosted a brief Q&A and it was all just so relaxed – a really lovely afternoon pulled together so well by the team at Lifestyle. -MB Read the rest...
