Last night Leighlu and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary in style at Vue de Monde. It was certainly a fantastic place to celebrate a special ocassion in style. The restaurant was quite different to everywhere else we've been. We walked in and were seated on a huge table with big white leather seats and a great view of the kitchen pass, which is viewable from most places inside. The lovely staff asked us what we would like to drink with to start with and came to explain the concept of eating there as they knew it was our first time. They asked us for our likes and dislikes and anything we were keen to try, asked for what sort of budget we were aiming for and said leave the rest to us. I quite enjoy this style of dining, everything that came out was a suprise. Leigh had matching wines brought out and carefully explained by the sommelier. As I had said to the waitress that I wasnt too keen on wines, the sommelier came over and asked if I wished to try a couple of wines over the course of the evening instead, he picked two of the most beautiful sweet wines for me to try. Even though they were sweet, they matched our food beautifully.

Every filthy detail of what we ate last nightCollapse )

Friday was another day at the Savour School of filthy filthy cake and chocolate. We did three french style gateaux in 9 hours. Unfortunately i was a little ill over the weekend so didnt get a chance to taste anything until last night. Luckily they all taste fantastic! I took the rest of the cakes to the office where everything was devoured instantly by the small group of dedicated eClinic cake connoisseurs.

Filthy cakes under the cut!Collapse )

I went and did the Special Occasions Cake course at the Savour School on Wednesday and Thursday. Words can't really describe how much fun I had (even with all the learning). The course was mostly about decorating the cakes with chocolate, covering the cake with chocolate ganache and making chocolate characters. It was a chocolate lovers delight! The instructor made things clear and simple enough that we can do all of this from home without having to go buy any special equipment.
I took the larger of the two cakes into the office today, and it was completley demolished in 10mins so it wasnt too bad, i however couldnt stomach the thought of eating any cake.

Enough talk on cake, here are the results of two days in the kitchen.

Well Leigh and i are back from our 4 days in Sydney. We did lots of stuff ™ and saw lots of things™.

  • Lord Nelson Brewery - After having a little walk around the city we decided to head down to this fantastic place. We decided to sit at the bar and have some lunch as the rest of the place was completely packed. After listening to Mark at work going on about lamb shanks we were both really dissapointed that they werent on the menu. We ended up going for bangers and mash and fish and chips, such plain sounding food but it was possibly the nicest thing we've eaten in a while, and the beer was pretty good too. We did get the beer ordering a bit fucked up, pots are middies, and in a pub pots sound like pints. We got it sorted by the end after downing a pint before our food arrived.

  • Awards Ceremony - Let me start by saying how proud of Leigh Iam, while he didnt win a trophy he did get a Higly Commended *claps*. The actual night was a complete blast, food was good, wine was good, company was good :) After the ceremony we went down to a bar for the After-party. Lots of drunk people everywhere. Learnt that the only people that dance worse than geeks are geek journalists. Also learnt more than i needed to know about "teledildonics".

  • Yacht ride - Our only planned event for our trip was Sailing on an Americas Cup yacht. This was awsome. We went up to Manly and back to take in the wonderful sights of the harbour. I was brave and volunteered to help on the winches while Leigh took photos. The crew explained how the yacht works and why we move the sails. It was great fun and very interesting. I did chicken out on going to the bathroom, and so did alot of other people by the number of people we met in the bathrooms at Star City :)

  • Sydney Tower - We decided to go in the evening to check out Sydney by night. I think it was probably the best time to go up and see everything all lit up. Luna Park and the Sydney Harbour Bridge looked so amazing. Taking photos was quite an ordeal with all the light behind me but i managed to get some fantastic shots. The ride to the top of the Tower was funny, three kids going insane singing the Willy Wonka song and saying we are going to die while the mother looked completely embarassed while apologising to everyone else in the lift saying "remember this when you go to have children."

  • Red Oak Brewery - Beer wankery at its finest! I was expecting more of a pub but this was really a restaurant with an awsome beer menu and a bar. Leigh and I tried quite a few different beers including a Honey Ale, Framboise Froment and a Belgium Choc-Cherry Stout. They were all simply amazing. The Choc-Cherry stout was served with a rather indepth lecture on how to drink it and what to drink it with. The food was awsome too, and rasberries in tiramisu go really well.

  • Taronga Zoo - This was much better than i expected. Taronga Zoo is set on a hill so we caught a cable car to the top and made our way down through some beautiful enclosures. We managed to get front row seats for the amazing Seal show and the free flight bird show. We also got to see the red panda which was amazingly cute. A huge snow leopard, with the most stunning paws, and the gorillas being extremely cheeky. One gorilla managed to climb up and over the wire stopper on a palm tree so he could swing between them and eat whatever it was on the top. There was some butt licking and poop touching, but nothing like the melbourne chimps with their poop eating.

  • Jet Boating - This was AMAZING fun. We get suited up in an anlke length poncho that feels like its been wet for months and jump into the boat and buckle ourselves in. After the usual safety lecture that goes on we go for possibly the craziest boat ride ive ever been on. These boats get up to 80kms an hour then stops suddenly by doing 270˚ spin, also doing powerbreak stops and letting a wave of water ride on into the back. I dont think ive ever laughed so hard in my life, it sure was an interesting and wet way to see the sights of Sydney.

  • Krispy Kreme - So over doughnuts right now. Our hotel was a couple of minutes walk away from KK so practically every time we walked past a doughnut was consumed. Added with the ton of doughnuts we bought home for us and everyone else, I can safely say that there will be no more doughnuts consumed for quite a while.
