Occasional stories, food and travel inspiration

Eater for hire

2015 is rushing by at an alarming rate and my beloved blog has been sorely neglected. So instead of waiting for that perfect, non-existent free day to craft one of my lengthy personal story/recipe posts or put the finishing touches on one of my huge travel posts (Turkey, Abu Dhabi and Southern Ocean Lodge stories still to come, folks!) I’ve decided to mix things up with a short ‘n’ sweet update today.

Hentley Farm: Christina Soong

I’ve recently been researching some of South Australia’s best food experiences for four photo-journalism pieces I’m working on for a client. It was pretty much my dream commission: I was given an open brief, asked to pitch some story ideas and then told I had all four assignments.

Pinch me hard, I thought.

Devour Patisserie and Cafe: Christina Soong

As part of my research I’ve been travelling around the state and eating out a lot lately. When I say a lot, I mean a lot: I managed four tasting menus within 36 hours once!

But all this eating is for a good cause and I’m having a wonderful time revisiting old favourites and getting to know my new happy places. There is such incredible food talent here in South Australia – I have high expectations when it comes to, well, nearly everything, and I’ve been genuinely thrilled by some of the food I’ve eaten lately.

Ferment Asian: Christina Soong

Do you recognise any of these places or dishes? I’m looking forward to sharing these stories with you soon. In the meantime, I have more blog posts in the works – thank you for your patience.

    You have the PERFECT job! The dishes look amazing BTW! When you do so many tasting menus are you allowed to take a half bite of everything and freeze the rest for another day?
    Bon Appetite!

      Why thanks, Dawn. I do enjoy my work! Re the tasting menus – I actually manage to eat most of them myself. I think I’m like a snake – my stomach can expand when I have a big meal!
