Food crime

May 24, 2023 - 05:46 -- Admin

When I lived in Sydney, I was in the habit of reading The Good Food Guide from cover to cover every Tuesday. Yeah. I was one of those wankers. (Even worse, I wrote for them later).

Being in Brisneyland, I rarely pick it up now, but this piece popped into my newsfeed yesterday.

Wondering if I should read some Martin Amis?

May 22, 2023 - 15:41 -- Admin

I confess I’ve never read his novels because they’re not very splodey and I figured he didn’t need the money. But everyone’s been saying how good he was, and now he’s dead. I feel like I maybe have missed out.

I didn't read any John Le Carre until after he had submitted his final manuscript, and then I pretty much binged his entire back catalogue. Anybody read any of the Amis novels? Apparently, Money is his best.

Breakfast in Canberra

May 16, 2023 - 07:54 -- Admin

After a surprisingly tough time finding anywhere open last night (my apologies to Public) I lit out early for breakfast this morning and managed to grab a lonely guy table at Maple and Clove. Had my usual there. The spelt sweet corn waffles with poached googs, avo and salmon.

This will probably be my only feed until I get home later this arvo, so I’m leaning into it with a couple of big milky cappuccinos.
