The Best Kitchen in Melbourne

For my passion for food, I really need a quality kitchen! The best kitchen or at leasy that’s what my friends call it. We never have dinner parties anywhere else anymore.

Inner City Events: Catering South Melbourne

I may have found my new favorite summertime staple. Bean Burgers. They are simple to make and taste delicious. Although I love my veggie burgers from Morning Star, a little variety is always welcomed. I found these burgers to be super simple and super delicious. I topped mine with a spicy mozzarella cheese and of course, ketchup. I spiced up the ketchup this time and it made for a decadent dip. These are healthy and perfect for those of us … Continue Reading →
