Last year we fell in love with Tanzania. From Chada Katavi in the south to the plains of the Grumeti Reserve in the north, Tanzania holds so many special memories.

View from the Lake Palace Hotel in Udaipur

Situated in the middle of Lake Pichola, this hotel has many nooks and crannies where you can sit and enjoy the amazing view.

With summer fast approaching in Australia, my thoughts go back to our summer in Sicily and in particular, Favignana, where this photo was taken.

'Les Tomates' at L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon

A sneak preview of my fabulous dinner at L’ Atelier de Joel Robuchon in Paris.
The dish is ‘Les Tomates’, a simple but stunning dish of different types of tomatoes dressed with sumac and extra virgin olive oil.
Tomatoes as you don’t often taste them- incredibly flavoursome. If your produce is the best, nothing else is required.
Joel Robuchon never disappoints!
