Jamie's Best Ever Christmas

It's starting to become super-cold here in the Australian countryside, so tonight I decided to cook a very apt Wintery dish. The recipe was from 'Jamie's Best Ever Christmas' TV series & turned out a treat (as Jamie's recipes always do!) Hope this series is released on DVD one day!

Cakes for Christmas!

I'll be over in London in the lead-up to Christmas this year. On my holiday, I plan to visit the absolutely gorgeous 'Violet Cakes' & buy a truckload of their delectable treats to enjoy. Anyone who knows me well, knows my holidays always revolve around food. Forget monuments and landmarks, what excites me most when abroad, is paying homage to that countries culinary greatness! I'm really looking forward to my visit. Thanks to owner & pastry-chef extraordinaire Claire Ptak for the generous use of these lovely photos.

Melbourne spends 2.6 million on Christmas!

Today, Melbourne mayor Robert Doyle confirmed that The City of Melbourne would be upping their spend on Christmas decorations this year. Plans include "gift-wrapping" the town hall! Hopefully it'll look something like the Cartier building that I saw gift-wrapped in New York at Christmas a couple of years ago!

Santa's Naughty List

I guess Santa Claus isn't coming to town anytime soon, but I'm sure he's already busy compiling his naughty/nice list. Here are a few Christmas cards I found for sale on the 'Papier D'amour' website. They're by Kate Spade.

I love them.....
