We watched Katherine make her Pom Pom Cake live on stage, this dome cake, layered and topped with butter cream and decorated with fluffy marshmallow “Pom Pom’s” was super impressive. It sounds and looks complicated, but she broke this down into small steps, that left me inspired and ready to tackle the task. It was lovely to see her teacher-turned-famous baker in the flesh and it was a delight to listen to her and learn.

Be prepared for your mind to be blown, CBD welcomes the new Bopp & Tone!

The corner of Carrington & Wynyard street has gone through a rebirth with the arrival of Bopp & Tone, the new finance district’s restaurant and bar.  Opening night was an opportunity to see the unveiling of the space as one of the city’s newest destination for after work drinks and dinner.  Open spaces, natural light and an alfresco deck will play host to after work drinks and summer dinners with a menu of Mediterranean influence.

Share food is the name of the game here.  Seafood dishes range from $26-$29 with whole fish options at seasonal market prices.  You’ll find the same exotic sourcing in Wagyu Flank ($53), MB3 Rib Eye $46), MB2 Sirloin ($38) and a monstrous 1kg Brooklyn Valley Bistecca for $135!  They pride themselves on offering a sustainable selection of produce while offering a high end experience in meal options of wood grill and charcoal oven.  Accompaniments (Sides) at just $8-$10 add that extra richness to your meal.

The opening night was a showcase of dishes reminiscent of the A ‘La Carte menus and functions menus.  The venue thriving at full potential with a feature piece grazing table, fresh seafood, wood fire opened and chargrilled meats as 300 palettes were delighted with the style of cooking one could expect in a full dining experience.

The wine list is in keeping with the theme with some of the most prominent vineyards at the forefront of sustainable production.   The flare of Mediterranean seeps into their cocktail list also with some clever innovations.  One stand out from opening night was their signature Raspberry Aperol spritz.  The Aperol’s sugary undertones in sweetness from the citrus blended with the tart edge of the raspberry work well together.

This is a collaboration between Black Bear BBQ and The BBQ Alliance to raise money for our farmers and rural communities across Australia, doing it tough this year. Whilst we love a good deal of sun to invoke those rays for a bit of a tan. As you head to the beach, spare a thought for the farmers, whose crops and livestock suffer with a lack of rain causing drought, severely impacting the livelihood of our nation’s farmers.

There is plenty of live entertainment for all ages; there is music, a petting zoo, jumping castle and more. Music performed by Volky, Taya Chani Trio, Sweet Jelly Rolls and CK & the 45s.

It is a carnivore’s heaven, with the likes of Parilla Argenchino and BlackBear BBQ doing what they do best, cooking meat! There is plenty of quality BBQ meat on offer. American style, low and slow smoked meats from Black Bear BBQ were mouthwateringly good. Try their beef brisket, pork belly, wings, beef ribs and more.

Where to give back to the community?

Many of the team at “The Where To” are very much involved in community activities.  As we approach the season when many may not be as fortunate as us to enjoy the activities and experiences of the city like we can, we’ve compiled a list of some causes we support. It’s an opportunity for us to reflect and remember how valuable our time is – not just for us, but for others. It’s humbling when you realize how something so simple in your world can mean the universe for another.

SONG KITCHEN, SURRY HILLS:

Eat for a cause at this not-for-profit restaurants that supports YWCA and the work supporting women suffering domestic violence. 

45331776_2679918205567067_6088032222714003456_n

SONG KITCHEN has a social conscience, offering 100% of their profits to support the YWCA NSW – an organisation that helps women experiencing domestic violence. You can eat and know you’re supporting a good cause at the same time.

A new spring menu designed by new Head Chef, Elizabeth Mason, this season’s menu leaves it’s French roots behind with a re-invention of Mediterranean.   The aromas of rosewater, slow cooked meats, charring of seafood, savoury and sweet flavours ripple through the new menu. We receive excellent service from our host, Shaun and it is satisfying to know every bite on meals is supporting this great cause.

Check out the new menu here:

It’s a great way to keep on top of health conditions you might be at risk of, whilst also (once screened) helping those in need.   Blood donations can be made into 22 types of medical treatments as well as the obvious which many of us know. The challenge is that not all of it is used within the timeframes,  like for example, a plasma donation.  It  only has a 42 day shelf life.   Freezing blood samples can costs hundreds per sample and is only usually reserved for rare blood types.   Anyone between 18 to 70 years of age can donate and it can take anywhere between 5-15 minutes to donate whole blood (which can be broken down into plasma and platelets), otherwise 45-90 minutes when donating just plasma and platelets.  Salty foods help increase your blood volume faster after donating and you right to go after a short 10-15 minute rest. When you’re finished, they fill you up with delicious snacks to re-supplement those bodies.

It’s an easy way to help others in need.

SYDNEY CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL TOY APPEAL:
One way you can ease the difficult times of more than 140,000 families

“Sydney Children’s Hospital gets overwhelmed with toys at Christmas time and kids are always coming and going.” says Matthew Chaina who is an advocate for mental health charities, including Kookaburra Kids. “The problem they have after Christmas, is everyone forgets about them. So being that my daughter Brooklyn’s birthday is 3 weeks after Christmas, she chose to donate some toys she received for her birthday for the kids that missed out or have their own birthday coming up and we’re doing it again next year.”

It’s a great reminder that giving back isn’t just reserved for a certain time of year as the hospital always needs toys for the children they treat suffering a variety of conditions.   “It’s not much but at least it makes some kids happy. These are the values I felt are necessary to teach my 3 year old. She already knows her ABC’s, counts to 20, writes her own name and does 300 piece puzzles by herself. Not to mention she had enough toys till she’s 10!”.

Sydney Children’s hospital in Randwick treats up to 69000 kids a year, while Westmead’s Children Hospital administers to more than 80,000.

The night was hosted by Porcelain Alice & Diesel Darling. Porcelain Alice a showgirl, burlesque dancer and producer. She demonstrated her skills on the evening with her light hearted nonchalant boganesque crude demeanour and profanities, delivering many laughs. Although not advertised as a comedy show, there are many laughs to be had. She is a seasoned performer with a wealth of credentials and her experience and ability to entrance a crowd was apparent. Dieslel Darling supported the hosting and also performed a routine englfing fire that the crowds on the edge of their seats in addition to her crazy electrical performance.

As for the Burlesque, this show had it all and the girls were amazing. Quality performances by Kael, Miss Burlesque NSW 2018 delivering an increible David Bowie routine, Ginger Fox, Miss Burlesque Australia runner up 2015 – performing two sultry routines and Miss Arizona demonstrating some amazing skills on the pole. Kelly Ann Doll’s impressive rockabilly dancing done at a cracking pace with plenty of sensuality in the performance was certainly entertaining. Diesel Darling topped off the show with her use of snakes and outfit with metal grinders spraying sparks throughout her performance.

This show was a real eye opener, it was refreshing to see some exciting live entertainment in Sydney, with all performers putting on a great show. It was great alternative to entertaining yourselves at a bar or staring at the footy on TV at the pub. This show was equally enjoyed by both ladies and gents. If you are looking for something to do and a little different, then we thoroughly recommend this.
