ENTERTAINMENT BOOK SPECIAL: ETTO PASTA BAR NEW
as I mentioned before your new Entertainment Book will allow you not only to see new places and try new things including foods and drinks but also to reflect on some new art forms... really? yes! this week at Etto Pasta Bar in Malvern Glenfeirrie Rd Ned and I observed 100-s of pasta drainers totally unused red and white upside down right on the wall - an ultimate experience of "Ai Weiwei" art house display. BTW their salmon, rocket, capers and ricotta pizza was absolutely awesome.
my one remarkable discovery at the European Bazaar Shop, 535 North Road Ormond yesterday: fig jam. It is made out of real figs, and it is not what you think - the jam is not "figovyj", but on the contrary: it is entirely divine!!!
ENTERTAINMENT BOOK: WARRAMUNGA RESTAURANT NEW
ENTERTAINMENT BOOK: MOVENPICK NEW
Movenpick at Westfield following suggested Entertainment Book voucher tripe treat. flavors on the table: - creme brulee - pistachio - blue-berry cheesecake the second one: - cappuccino - white chocolate - hazelnut My fav so far still remains the same: black currant and perhaps pistachio that works perfectly well with Alex's choice of cappuccino and last time: latte. But what is likable most of all is the quality of milk that Mövenpick Ice Cream gets drop by drop off the Alpine regions where the best and highly regarded Swiss cows chew the best grass on the most luxurious pastures of the world. You will know the difference when you have a bite of this wonder. price is sensationally attractive: $11.95 for two with the voucher. Love it?

Impala and Peacock tea house Impala and peacock Tea house is located at 558 Sydney rd, Opening hours Sunday – Monday 10 -6 Tuesday- Friday 1pm -6 pm. Saturday Private high tea showers only
I was privileged to be asked to photograph and review this little gem of a place, looking forward with great anticipation for the long awaited day to arrive. The Impala and peacock as expected did not disappoint. It has been open over a year now and the owner Sarah who though young, has an impressive knowledge of all things tea. She takes great pride in both her gorgeous tea house and sharing her knowledge and passion with interested cliental. Tea drinking has a culture all of its own, which is obvious from even just a glance around this unique place, with its impressive array of teas and equipment which you can purchase to continue the dining experience at home. As a new convert to the world of tea drinking, I was in awe and intrigued at the variety of teas, tisares and the ceremony of tea drinking. I particularly loved that the tea came in glass pots, so that the beautiful colors were on display, and were presented upon glass warmers which both added to the classy presentation and the experience of keeping the tea at a perfect temperature. We were greeted by Amy, who was lovely, helpful, attentative and very approachable. She was very accommodating, and professional with an extensive knowledge, which she was more than happy to share. I usually associate high tea with fancy restaurants and a stuffy atmosphere however I was delighted with the relaxed and inviting atmosphere, coupled with simple but stylish decor. The most note worthy of which is a giant breathtaking vintage chandelier encased in a metal orb which is stunning and quite a sight to behold. The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming and the highly trained staff were always on hand to answer any questions or to be of assistance. On the day we went we were treated to high tea, a scrumptious selection of sweet and savory offerings, and fresh fruit complimented by delicious tea matching. We started off our afternoon’s adventure with Golden bud and Brunswick breakfast tea to enjoy with the savory tier. Golden bud was delightfully rich and light, delicately refreshing with hints of malt, caramel and honey overtones. It’s comforting, moorish flavor was complimented perfectly with the rich tangy mushroom, stuffed with Quinoa and salsa verde. The homemade frittata was perfectly cooked, smooth, and flavorsome with a light texture, perfectly moist yet firm. The Brunswick breakfast tea was a great choice to match with both the beetroot, pumpkin and feta sandwiches which in and of themselves I found had perfectly complimenting flavors and also with the traditional cucumber sandwiches which were light, with the addition of a delicate cream cheese, with ribbons of cucumber mixed well with the subtle flavor of dill as a accompaniment. Next we moved on to my favorite part of any meal, the desserts, and I was in for a real treat. First off we tried the Passion fruit, lemon and coconut slice which I can only describe as to die for! This is a definite attraction all on its own and the only down side is that it is very moorish, and a potential addiction, so dieters beware! This delightful, tangy, sweet, smooth, creamy dessert encompassed multi flavors and textures all in one, I strongly suggest you try it for yourself. The flourless orange cake was delicate, light in texture, had a full zesty flavor and was a fantastic match with Invigorate a recharging tisane, this warming, soothing drink with definite mango, orange and peppercorn overtones was a match made in heaven. The Aromatherapy tea we enjoyed was a good match with the more subtle flavors of traditional scones with jam and cream. Aromatherapy is a blend of peppermint, spearmint and lemon grass amongst other refreshing, invigorating, flavors. The scones were light, paired with delicious sharp, tangy, mouth watering raspberry jam and fluffy whipped cream. Very satisfying indeed. Our incredible afternoon was completed by a fresh array of seasonal fruit which I enjoyed immensely whilst sipping the piece de resistance ‘Blooming tea’. For anyone who has not yet tried this incredible, beautiful to behold, delightfully light, comforting , white tea and jasmine flower which definitely does hit the flowery notes, is certainly missing out. So without spoiling the excitement I will not disclose any more, but take my word for it, popping down to the Impala and Peacock is a definite must to try this tea and many other delights. They have absolutely won me over. I will be revisiting this gorgeous, tea house many more times in the near future. Thank you Impala and Peacock for an amazing and memorable afternoon.

ALEX'S LUNCH WITH A MAGIC GRASS: TARRAGON
JAR SALADS 52 HAPPY, HEALTHY LUNCHES BOOK BY ALEXANDER HART website Bohemian Rhapsody Club is grateful to Simon and Schuster publishing house for the opportunity to review this book.
The Jar Salads books will teach you how to prepare healthy lunches that can stay for sometime in the fridge without getting soggy and wet damaged by the seasoning and vinegar. How many time did you take salads to work or on the road trip with you and you were not happy with the taste and the look of it after some hours after preparation. The smart way the author is offering to us on how to keep such salads crispy ans fresh will be the way for all of us to follow. When U first opened the book I thought: how could not I guess about such way myself? The book also describes not only the way the seasoning should be placed in the jar but also the order your salad ingredients should be in the jar for the better results. After you prepare your first jar as an experiment keep it in the fridge for the night for example then open the fridge, take the jar out, open it and... well, this is what you will find out after reading the book. There are 52 recipes. 52 is the number of week in one year meaning you will be enjoying a new salad every single week. The salads recipe inspiration come from Middle Eastern food to Italian, from Thai to Greek, all around the world so for all the possible tastes. We also suggest to be creative and invent your own salads.
I also personally liked the way the pictures are presented: with the full description what goes where in a simple scheme. The pictures and graphic should have taken lots of time to arrange, so it is a lot of work not only knowledge that was put in creation of this book. The book contains section on vegetarian, meat, poultry and seafood salads. There is an alphabetic reference at the back of the book for your convenience too.
Apart from the yummy recipes of the salads the book contains some valuable information on how to eat te salad, how long can you keep them, where to buy these special jars, why they should be made out of glass, and basically how it all works in a two pages introduction.
I was also very touched to find out that Alexander is a cook from Blue Mountains, NSW, one of my favourite places in Australia. This is the first book of the author and we are looking forward to his new books.
