'I'm going to take a stroll along the boardwalk,' I said to Peter as I headed out the door of our holiday apartment. 'Oh, are you,' he replied, turning his gaze away momentarily from an action-packed movie he'd been watching. 'Yes,' I replied. 'And if I'm not back within half an hour, you'll find me at Berardo's having oysters and cocktails.'
'In Sicily I came to relish the digestive Limoncello, taken at the end of a meal. It is made by steeping lemon peel in alcohol spirit for fifteen days and then blending with sugar syrup. My head rested peacefully on the pillow with the scent of lemons in my nostrils and a vision in my mind of citrus orchards glistening in the sun'.

'Today Sydney, Canberra and other NSW centres experienced extreme temperatures, with records being set for Sydney at Observatory Hill (45.8°C); Sydney Airport (46.4°); Canberra (41.6°); and a range of other communities along the coast from Bega (44.6°) to Williamtown (44.8°). The highest temperature recorded in the Greater Sydney Area was 46.5° at Penrith.'
Hi. I'm Liz. I'm a writer, cook and traveller based in Canberra, Australia.
I love the process of writing and the stringing together of words to form
a story borne from the wisp of an idea. I also greatly enjoy cooking
Join me as I share with you my favourite recipes, postcards and morsels from my adventures, conversations with cookery writers
and chefs, and news on food and cooking.
