Weekly Bites: Foodie News

Your weekly bites of foodie news from South Bank and beyond…

Pavlova may not have originated in Australia or New Zealand
It has been a source of much contention between ourselves and our Kiwi counterparts but it seems that all this time we may have been feuding over nothing. GoodFood has unearthed claims that the famous dessert’s origins may in fact be American. Well, as long as ours is served with extra cream and strawberries, we don’t really care who invented it…

Nutella Dessert Bar Set to Open in Sydney
This bit of news has us pleading like a five year old ‘Can we have one tooooooo Brisbane? Pretty please!!’ The boys behind the very Sydney’s successful Foodcraft Espresso and Bakery are launching a new bakery which will aim to provide every type of Nutella creation imaginable. From Nutella cruffins, to Nutella cheesecakes, Nutella doughnuts and Nutella gelato, this place will be bursting at the seams with sweet creations featuring the chocolatey hazelnut spread that we love so much.  Um…excuse us while we log onto Virgin and book the next plane to Sydney!

This new book takes you behind the fridge doors of some of the world’s top chefs. Expect to find pickled marigold flowers, morrocan absinthe leaves and frozen flies among other things. Yum….?!
