Industrial Brunch

I think I’ve declared my love affair with brunch quite a while ago, i don’t know if its the fact that you can eat that much during breakfast hours and get away with it, or maybe because otherwise i wouldn’t be caught dead eating eggs, potatoes or bacon this early.

A few Sundays back, le boyfriend and I woke up early…again…thanks to that god forsaking bell right across our window (i mean really who was the one who decided is was a good idea to have a bell ringing since 8am every 15 minutes!) anyways… we woke up early and I’ve manage to convince him to go out for brunch and we ended going to Everybody’s in Fort Lane.

Vineyards, Wineries and Brunch

Last Saturday a friend of mine had her birthday and she decided to celebrate it by having a huge brunch at Soljans Winery,located west from Auckland city in the Kumeu Region. From what I could see and asked, the venue can be used for different purposes, they have a restaurant and a function centre that serves perfectly for wedding receptions and such and a huge vineyard and winery planted with Pinot gris, Chardonnay and Pinotage grapes (which they’ve told me are the best of that region)

Clearly  June is not the time of flourishing vines haha

Sydney in 8 dishes

I’m back! I apologize on the lack of post yesterday (I can blame it on the jet lag but it was pure laziness)

I little thing I kept for myself since I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to post about it was that I traveled to Sydney! Went went just for four days to visit some friends that are about to be parents and it was the perfect excuse to fly to Australia for the first time. So over the next weeks I will be posting a couple of  blog post on the trip (kind of what I did with New Zealand’s Northland) and we will call it: The Kiwi Diaries goes Aussie.
