George Town Festival

George Town Festival, Penang

I must admit that I hadn't visited Penang in Malaysia until 2013, but I fell in love with the beautiful island immediately.

Its tranquil beaches, gorgeous food and friendly people made me want to re-visit and rediscover more of Penang than I did in the few days we were there.

Pork Star dinner at Hare and Grace

Monday, February 18, 2013 was a night to remember at chef-owner Ray Capaldi's Hare and Grace restaurant.

It was the annual Pork Star dinner for chefs and food media and we expected no less than a magnificent meal from the talented and innovative Ray.

Guests mingled on the terrace on the balmy evening, while munching crisp pork rind nachos draped with chilli and cheese, while we cooled our palates with a Skimstone Sangiovese Rose.

Dinner awaited at the uber cool dining room with its very interesting ceiling fixtures. Check it out and you'll see what I mean.

Dandenong World Food Fare

Dandenong Market was transformed into a huge food market on Sunday, March 2, 2013.

It was fun wandering around the different stalls, sampling little morsels before deciding what to eat for our late lunch.

Most dishes cost $5, making it one of the most affordable events of the festival,

The Vietnamese crispy soft-shell crab and salad was a good starter which was followed by a hearty amei tha nhi aloo hin or beef and potato curry with rice from the Free Burma Cafe.

The coconut bomb dessert was suitably sweet, encasing a shredded coconut filling.
