Providence in Pictures – Carlton Café Opening

A spot next to a farmer’s market is an ideal place to open up a café. Meandering through stalls lined with plump strawberries, bundles of leafy greens and baskets filled with bulbs of garlic and field mushrooms is the ultimate inspiration for a produce-driven chef.

Stokehouse City – Gourmet Traveller Reader Dinner for Twinings

The latest restaurant to open at Southgate launched with a loud, Italian, inebriated bang. Artusi, brought to us by the folks behind Tutto Bene, stored away the starched napkins and silver cutlery a few weeks ago to throw an extravagant opening bash. It was a night of opera singing, evening gowns and an opportunity for Melbourne’s D grade celebs to get out… Read More Restaurant Opening – Artusi
