Brisbane :: Crust & Company Artisan Baking

Crust & Company, Newmarket, is a very well established bakery in our neighbourhood. Their breads and pastries don't need a superfluous write-up - they are delicious and that is that. We wholeheartedly agree with this 5-star review on their facebook page: "My advice is don't go in there. You won't just walk out with one pastries [sic]. I had the almond croissant and pistachio croissants [sic] wish I never tried them [sic] I want them everyday now. Great range of pastries [sic] good weekend treat". If you're ever in the Newmarket area, do yourself a favour and enjoy a treat or two from Crust & Company. This is the pastry that my husband is guaranteed to walk out with when he goes in. :-D

Christmas in Australia

Despite our recent very busy period, we always have time for pavlova (meringue with fruit and cream). Pavlova was named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova, who visited Australia and New Zealand in the 1920s. There might be plenty of good-natured debate and rivalry surrounding its origin (Australia or New Zealand) but none of that matters at Christmas time. Loaded up with fresh, seasonal fruit and some tinned favourites, it is a summer treat that is hard to surpass. We miss our European Christmas experience deeply but there is something undeniably special about Christmas in Australia...

...and pavlova may or may not have something to do with that. ;-)
