  • Simple things are often the best! In praise of a savoury scone with French butter and spicy homemade relish with a $2 coffee until 9am daily @_idaskitchen #parkwood GC Hospitals and Griffith Uni are so close by! . . #foodgram #foodgoldcoast #savouryscones #morningteatime #homemadefood
  • It's vegan for lunch today - Roast cauli tacos with slaw, hummus and chimmichurri is close to Taco Tuesday price every day! Who needs to wait? Not me, when it's my local! @alkemist_gc #tacotime #foodgram #foodgoldcoast #veganeats #plantbased #tacolove #tacolover
  • It's all about food and wine at the Orange Wine Festival, held annually every October. The pictured event shows off local wines to the public, especially those that won awards in the Orange Wine Show. There's a bountiful feast of local produce to accompany the wine tasting. Review on website. . . #orangewinefestival #orangewineries #unearthcentralnsw #orangensw #foodgoldcoastontour #foodandwinefestival
  • Twice in one day? Yes, that's how good we think @firestonesydney is! Handmodel @crobbz tucks into brunch after an epic hen's night. Corn and zucchini fritters with haloumi hits the spot. Firestone hasn't seen the last of us! Every meal coming out of the kitchen looks so inviting! #firestonehornsby #foodgoldcoastontour #hornsby #sydneyfoodies #hornsbycafe
  • Hotcake with fresh seasonal fruit, cream and maple syrup for brunch @firestonesydney #firestonehornsby #foodgoldcoastontour #hornsby #hotcakes #brunchtime
  • Chocolate fondant dessert at Project Tokyo is not to be missed. It's a little tower of chocolate oozing chocolate lava, small enough to excuse your indiscretion and large enough to share the guilt! Great for the soul, or as @goldcoastfoodandwinetours would say it's totally 'worth spending the calories on'.

  • I'm living between two cities for family reasons, and when I get back to the coast, I'll be checking out the What's Doing app to see what's going on, such as FISHBOWL FRIDAYS @steampunksurfersparadise The perfect way to end the week 👌...Repost...

  • Our dish of the day at See Thai is the Whole barramundi with tamarind and sweet chilli, one of three whole fish dishes on offer. It's a fabulous dish to share, backed up with Thai roast duck salad and banana fritters for dessert.
