Food Tourism: Liverpool, UK

In case you haven’t heard, Liverpool has a bustling food scene. When most people think of food in the UK it might be London that would spring to mind, or perhaps Birmingham or even Padstow. Of course London has all the big name chefs located there, Birmingham is well known for it’s Balti Triangle and…

Food Tourism: Inverloch, Australia

I was around 9 years old when I first started going to Inverloch. We used to go to my step grandfather’s holiday house during the summer, to stay in an old fibro house that always had a huntsman lurking in the outdoor dunny. Things have changed since those days. Inverloch has always been popular with…

Review- Eala Bhán

I had first heard of Eala Bhán a few months ago after an Australian man left a rather unusual review on TripAdvisor. His review focused on his forgotten windbreaker jacket rather than the meal he received. Invariably it made the rounds on the web due to the response of the restaurateur and like most I…

Food Tourism: Oslo, Norway

I had previously visited Oslo a few years ago and was struck by how different Oslo is to other cities in Norway. It’s big and bustling, with notable architecture and an impressive arts scene. Despite it being on the water and there being a forest within the city limits, Oslo can at times feel very…

Review- Bloom by Bord Bia

Bloom is a summer garden and food festival in Dublin that is organised by Bord Bia, the Irish government’s food and horticultural board. It has gone from strength to strength since 2007, with its food village and show gardens gaining recognition on the world stage, and has become one of the jewels in the crown…

Review- Sheridans 8th Annual Irish Food Festival

Sheridan’s Irish Food Festival is held yearly in May in Sheridans Cheesemongers headquarters in Pottlereagh, County Meath. The festival solely focuses on quality Irish produce, with a good emphasis on cheese and dairy, naturally, but also on a variety of products that would suit pretty much anyone regardless of age. The abundance of producers was…

Food Tourism: Dungarvan, Ireland

It’s safe to say that I’ve seen a fair amount of Ireland during my almost eight years living here. I have been to every county besides one during that time. Elusive Waterford. Somehow this county had escaped from ever being visited, I guess because it is a place where you have to go directly there,…

Food Tourism: Melbourne, Australia.

It feels a little strange to write about Melbourne in the same way that I have with other cities that I have visited. Melbourne is my hometown, it is part of my identity. Despite living in Ireland for the last 8 years, I have spent the majority of my life in Melbourne. So there isn’t…

Food Tourism: Glasgow, Scotland.

Before sitting down to write about my most recent visit to Glasgow, I was contemplating what to jot down. Do I write about all my food encounters? Do I go into every single detail of what I ate and where? Should I take an overall view or I should just focus on the absolute highlight…

Food Tourism: Bergen, Norway.

I have wanted to go to Bergen for years. I can’t recall when it first was scribbled onto my ever growing list of places to travel, it was that long ago, but it has been high on the list ever since. The thoughts of a town nestled among the fjords with seven mountains peering over…
