The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

Sweet tooth workout at the Food Festival World Chef Showcase

October 11th, 2009  |  Published in Uncategorized


I was lucky enough to lurk around the World Chef Showcase that was just on as part of Sydney International Food Festival. Now I’m home and very, very tired. Hopefully I’ll get to blog about the sessions I attended soon …

In the meantime, here is a little pic of the showbag from the session headed by super-popular pastry chef/patisserie owner Adriano Zumbo. Each pack contained a wasabi macaron and katsu don jelly studded with Japanese bread crumbs (now past tense as it was swiftly eaten!). You can easily guess which national cuisine influenced those creations. And thanks to that sugary trip, my sweet tooth now feels more well-travelled than my actual passport.

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.

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.
