If you didn’t manage to get your hands on The Bulletin, specifically the insert TASTE, from Tuesday 16th September 2014 you may have missed the article by Rose Sadleir about our humble Supper Club. If you’re interested in knowing a little more about what makes us put in weeks of planning and days of cooking for a few measly dollars have a read of the article!
We love you all, see you at an event soon!
In the light of the announcement of our next ‘Our Favourite Things’, we thought it would be nice to share a few of our favourite things (to cook and eat)!
WHAT ARE YOUR ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS, THE THINGS YOU COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT?
Fresh herbs for sure. I’ve got a nice little herb garden which means I can make any simple little thing into something with a big bang of flavour.
WHAT’S YOUR ULTIMATE LAZY DINNER DISH?
Definitely Summer Rolls. Rice paper filled with vermicelli noodles, avocado, carrot, cucumber, cabbage, coriander & mint. Soy, sweet chilli and Kewpie Mayo for dipping!
BEST CUISINE IN THE WHOLE WORLD?
GREEK! Taramosalata! Tzatziki! Kalamari tiganito! Souvlaki! Saganaki! Spanakopita! Really I should have been born Greek. If anyone has a Greek Grandmother they would like to loan me for some cooking lessons send her my way!
FAVOURITE DISH TO EAT?
Fried Rice! There is so much variation to this classic little number. As a teenager on a family trip to Thailand and Balifor the full four weeks I ate fried rice for dinner and never once was it the same!
YOUR FAVOURITE FRUIT?
Raspberries and Apricots. I grew up in Tasmania and had what seemed like an unlimited supply of these. The house I lived in while in pre-school had an Apricot Tree I don’t remember much from that age but the top two memories were my neighbour throwing Freddo Frogs over the fence for me and sitting in that tree. Nonie (my grandmother) always grew raspberries and still sends Home-made Raspberry Jam up to us.
YOUR FAVOURITE CHEESE?
I know my names Bree not Brie but cheese really is my thing. I have only experienced one cheese that I didn’t like; Red Leicester, yuck! I tried wasabi cheese on a recent trip to Sydney and it completely won my heart.

We are glad to re-introduce Chloe. Chloe was originally one of the the duo who created Goldtoast Supper Club, but unfortunately had to move away to the Hunter Valley with her husband. She’s going to pop her head in here and there to share with us new and tried and true recipes, as well as give us a few tips on the best places to eat, drink and visit while she stumbles up and down the east coast of Australia. Keep your eyes peeled for snip-its from Chloe’s Kitchen.
Chloe has moved away and left me to fend for myself. It’s all so very sad, I’m feeling very sorry for myself but there will be lots of fun adventures for her!

Welcome Essa to the team!
Essa comes from a French background and lives for bread. If you make her a meal and she puts it between bread, that’s the greatest compliment possible. “All the best food can be sandwiched”.
this is what started all this. i picked up this book because of it’s beautiful cover with no knowledge it’s contents. i read the teensiest amount and bought it then and there.
i found a partner in crime and we got the ball rolling pretty fast. we are both food lovers, home cooks and occasional caterers. we are bree and chloe. picnicking is my favourite thing; creating a rustic meal, transporting the cutlery and tea cups outside of their proper homes and the sharing of food and conversation. chloe is more of a dinner party girl; divine courses to leave you feeling loved, satisfied and content with the world around you. combine those descriptions and hello pop-up restaurant!
