I can’t tell you how many times I have sat with my mum and sister talking endlessly about opening an Italian eatery of […]
Unless you’ve been living under Swan Bridge for the last 12 months you will have heard that Melbourne’s iconic and much loved Stokehouse was destroyed by fire earlier this year.

Josefin Zernell has spent much of her life making chocolate. Her fingers have sculpted delicate pralines and crafted decadent dark chocolates for years.
