This weekend gone I went camping with Kris in The Grampians in Western Victoria. This photo was taken at MacKenzie falls, shortly before a kookaburra stole the D’affinois, tomato and the local Mount Zero olive tapenade baguette from right out of my hand. Serves me right for being a yuppie.

At the very edge of the city there’s a small park that I often walk through or sometimes we have spontaneous picnics in where we drink bottles of champagne. My favourite part of the park is the geometric water feature from the 80’s that offers curtains of mist that you can stand in the middle of. One day a friend of mine pointed out the rows of rosemary that lined the footpath. I was...
Cloudy With a Chance of Pancakes
Sometimes it’s nice to sleep with food too.
A couple of years ago some of my friends gave me a hot pot for my birthday. This year for my birthday we made a hot pot feast. We sat amongst mountains of mushrooms, lotus root, greens and wagyu, passing each other pieces of broccoli, handfuls of noodles and dishes of sauce.
We are very pleased that Condiment has found a home in Barcelona in the Llibreria of CASA MARIOL, the wine bar and food store of a family owned winery of the same name, based in the Terra Alta region of Catalunya, Spain. We hope to visit them one day but for the time being we’ll have to be satisfied by their quite amazing website.
A delicious three person feast tonight with Kae and Daisuke at the famous harajuku gyoza restaurant.
It was Ben’s birthday on Sunday. I found him in Yoyogi park reading Naked Lunch and concealing a bottle of ume-shu and some olive bread.
Indoor Picnics & Outdoor Carpets
This winter we spent many chilly nights eating indoors on the picnic rug, imagining we were outside and it was summer. On the first warm spring night in September, Sari invited us over for dinner and made a delicious Mexican feast. She dragged her Persian rug outside into her garden and set it up with cushions. We sat under the stars, ate tortillas, and lounged around as if we were on her...
Gallery Trax — Photo Diary
In late August we made a long awaited pilgrimage to Gallery Trax. Cameron hired a car and drove above the speed limit at all times. The car looked like a pink rice bubble. It had been raining heavily. We got lost. Cameron looked to the earth for answers. We met a handsome dog. Poetry was everywhere. There were beautiful paintings by Ai Sasaki. Kain and Fi were there. ...

There are different kinds of cookie people. Their tastes range from the crunchy to the soft because people, too, are cooked in a variety of contexts. Cookie compatibility is, of course, a cornerstone of any friendship and is crucial to ensuring that freshly baked situations don’t end in disaster. My favourite thing you can order at the Albion are the giant cookies, delicious and...

Mutton Bird Dreaming
If you’re allergic to seafood like Jess, the closest you can get to enjoying it is muttonbird which tastes like anchovies. They serve it at the amazing Fleur’s Place in Moeraki, New Zealand.

Mr. Palomar is standing in line in a cheese shop, in Paris.

The line of customers moves along a counter where samples of the most unusual and disparate specialties are displayed. This is a shop whose range seems meant to exemplify every conceivable form of...
