The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

Santa Swag

December 24th, 2007  |  Published in Restaurants

These are just a few things that were created and sent Santa-ward. Up top are some marbled chocolates that I made by melting lots of chocolates down and then setting them in moulds and causing a hell of a mess in the kitchen.

This jar of goodness was given to me by Tash, a super-foodie work colleague, it’s a cherry jam, stewed from about 4,000 kilos from cherries. I can’t wait to try it!

Hopefully everyone has a few food goodies in their stocking this year and of course, Xmas lunch and/or dinner (often the killer one-two punch of both meals) often sends everyone into a belly-clutching food coma afterwards.

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.


This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
