The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

A quick update

October 3rd, 2012  |  Published in Restaurants

Here’s a quick snack-sized update.

The Crave food festival started yesterday. You have just under a month to enjoy the many appetite-appeasing events that are part of the program. Incidentally, I did some Q&As with festival guests Ruth Reichl, Christina Tosi and Andrew McConnell, which you can read on the Inside Out blog, if you’re curious.

On the topic of Momofuku Milk Bar’s Christina Tosi, I might be interviewing her for a podcast! I’ll keep you updated if it happens.

Something definitely scheduled is an interview with Nick Palumbo, which is the next Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry podcast I’m recording. If you have any questions you’d like to ask the Gelato Messina mastermind, let me know.

The next podcast features Jack Hanna from The Grounds. Up now is my interview with Time Out’s Miffy Rigby, where she covers everything from the best/worst meals she’s had to her glove-ruining shifts, working the batter at Pancakes On The Rocks.

Openings to look out for this week: Movida let in diners for the first time in its new Surry Hills spin-off and Kakawa’s pop-up will be up and running this Thursday at Gaffa Gallery.

And have you seen the very good-looking food blog, Eat This Food, which got many watts of much-deserved spotlight today on The Design Files?

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.
