All you can eat

Food, like the weather, is a really popular subject in Australia. Not unsurprising when you think about it because this is a small country in population but we’re major agriculturalists and we depend on the land heavily. Weather affects the land which affects the crops which affects harvest which affects our food prices. Australia is one of the driest countries in the world. As a result, we’ve invented and embraced marvelous water saving technologies and other clever environment-light devices, to bring exceptional affordable produce to the table.

Anyway, October is Good Food Month in Sydney. What better time than mid-spring when people are hungry for entertaining diversions after slow-winter and before summer celebrations. It helps that Sydneysiders are mad about food and we jostle for table supremacy against Melbourne (Melbourne wins, I think). Interestingly, food was probably the only safe public topic in my native country and yeah, we went for it. Add to that the fact that my partner is a Chef – she dots on me 🙂 –  means I get to indulge to my heart’s unmitigated content. Like I need another excuse to dive into the topic.

So here’s a photoplay of Sydney’s love/hate relationship with our chefs to kick off October.

Oh boy.

ETA: Wonderfully, C gave me a beautiful bar of bittersweet choc filled with hazelnuts that I’m going to crack into tonight.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
