These started to appear, about a month or so ago, in the counter displays of the Marrickville branch. The […]

Potato pizza at Bourke Street Bakery, Alexandria

Being a complete Bourke Street Bakery junkie, I’ve memorised every single vego lunch option they have. So I had a nerdish heart-spasm when I noticed they had something utterly brand new yesterday: Potato Pizza with Rosemary, Spanish Onion and Ricotta.

About

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

You can read more about my co-conspirators here.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.
