Melbourne, food blogs + an ex-pat

What is it about Melbournians and food? Miss Eagle's guess is the multiplicity of food establishments of all sorts and prices selling very good food. It is Miss E's guess that of all the food blogs in Australia most come from Melbourne. And now Miss E has discovered the blog of an ex-pat Melburnian liviing in the U.S.A. Brooke has established a beautiful blog in the last few months, bear necessities. Melboournians might like to pop over and say hello.

We're a city obsessed with food, aren't we? Being a ex-Sydney girl, I couldn't move back there - the attitude food and cooking here is quite different.

Can't stay - off to check out Brooke's blog.

I agree Lucy. I lived for some years in Sydney - and I much prefer Melbourne. Except I can't get over the food differences. For instance, in Sydney there are cha chas - triangular bread rolls of ciabatta bred. Haven't found any here. The same with Turkish bread rolls. Where do I find them in Melbourne. Hope you enjoyed visiting Brooke.

Blessings and bliss

Brigid, I love Turkish Bread rolls too, and most of the commercial bread shops sell them now. My favourite is Baker's Delight; they make both larger Turkish bread, and the small rolls in two flavours: Plain with sesame seeds, and Herb and Garlic - Yum.
Have been smacking my chops over your blog and the links you provide! You haven't mentioned the Carnation Cook book I lent you - have you tried anything from it yet?

Thanks for the shout out Miss E :) Its nice to still be considered a Melbournian, which I will always remain at heart!! Hopefully I will get back sometime in the not-too-distant future.
