Once again thanks for the FB friend invite and giving me the opportunity to discover your beautiful blog. Welcome back to the world of blogging. I’m looking forward to following your future posts.
Hi Anna, you’re quite welcom, and I’m glad you think my blog is beautiful! I’ve worked hard at making it that way, and this is only just the beginning of what’s planned! And I’ve had a super amazing friend doing the web design which has been very handy too.
Fabulous blog! Love it. Keep it up
Heh thanks Marynika!
I am very very new in this blog world .. and I am already addicted to it
I will be dropping by everyday .. got a lot to learn from you
Well it will be lovely to have you here, Kankana! I’ve had a look at your blog too, and I’m excited about all the things I will learn there as well. Here’s to new blogs!
Hi Angela, I love the blog! I totally agree with the issues you raised regarding ingredients and the food production system. I’m learning as much as I can about them as well – my first eye-opening encounter with them came via Michael Pollan and Raj Patel – and think that we all ought to make better informed choices about what we eat.
Michael Pollan is a dead set LEGEND. The Ominvores Dilemma is one of the best reads on contemporary food issues around, I think.
I just ordered two of his books & some from other authors about the production of food. I can’t wait to get them. If only my own 21/2 yr old & 4 month old let me: )

I’m so delighted to have unintentionally wandered into your blog. I’m sooo new to all this virtual existence & blogging. New to FoodBuzz but so far absolutely loved every moment discovering a new world of flavours, ethics & methods. I often get lost in the set up & not sure how it all works nor how to create such fabulous blogs . .but I am soo enjoying exploring.
I’m looking forward very much to reading so much more of your blog, such vast knowledge & experiences. A most Beautiful Blog but most significantly such a worthy message to share. Thank you.
Dear Paules, I’m so glad you are enjoying yourself here! I’ve just tried to access your blog, actually, and can’t open the page… tell me if you now what’s wrong so I can come and check you out!!
Oh not sure why, although not sure if I want you to check me out ha ha, just new nebulous musings, & I’m such a novice at all this. Cooking is equally as plain .. senses & simplicity it thine guide – so please lower the expectations accordingly
Thank you again, its so educating & enjoyable to discover this virtual universe of world recipes, ingredients & skills.
What a wonderful discovery. Congratulations on so many things Angela. Not least becoming a mother (ouch!). And this blog, and probably lots of other things too. I’m going to try some of your recipes.
Aw thank you John! Are you still wheeling your barrow?
Congratulations on a beautiful blog! It is great to see a fellow Aussie be so passionate about GOOD produce and GOOD ingredients!
Heh Martyna, thank you! I just had a look at your site too and really enjoyed myself! Looking forward to staying in touch.
Have a look at iDid – http://www.iDid.com.au – a series of ‘profession specific’ image driven internet directories… the brainchild (believe it or not) of an architect who is, not only passionate about his profession but also a fastidious ‘foodie’
Hi there! Thank you and I hope you enjoyed my blog (:
Your blog looks like a fantastic read too, and I really enjoy how you write about these issues about the origins of our food. It’s sth I believe strongly in too, and I love my part-time job at the Farmers’ Market I hope you continue checking back on my blog, and I’d definitely be reading your blog too from now on (: keep up the good work!
Hi Shu Han Lee,
It’s a pleasure to meet you and I love visiting your blog.
I love this so much! I am already planning to make the “Marbled Chocolate Cheesecake Brownie” next week.
ooooh, I hope you did make the cheesecake. And I hope you tell me about it! So glad you are enjoying my blog.
I love your story and your passion, looking forward to following along. I’m glad you somehow found me on Twitter
Kelsey, I love your blog. It makes me happy all the time.
Hi Angela, David here, just sending a big hello out from Canada! What’s your email address please? Thanks. DC
Dear David, so lovely to hear from you! Use this email address: email@example.com
Dear Angela – You are such a prolific writer and it is impossible to belive you have been blogging only for a few months…..Will follow your culinary journey earnestly.
Hope you’ll stop by my corner when you have a moment.
chow! Devaki @ weavethousandflavors
Devaki, I absolutely will and actually, on first glance, I see I already have! will be back there directly. Just need to make myself a cup of tea…
Wow! Discovered your bog via orangette!
And I’m so pleased that you did!
Congrats on your fabulous blog, your website and so many wonderful achievements! It would be lovely to see you & catch up. I’ve replied to yr fb invite for the cooking lessons & am really keen. Very interested in sourcing ethical food. Just read a bit more info about the lessons on your site now. I should say that my cooking for my family is more on the carnivore side than vegetarian or even omnivore if you know what I mean!! Do you think that will be ok? I also texted Libby to see if she might come with me and will check my uncles wife who may be interested as well – she is vegetarian.
Looking forward to further details.

Hello, I enjoy your weblog. Is there something I can do to obtain updates like a subscription or something? I’m sorry I am not acquainted with RSS?
Hi Cary, glad you like my blog! You don’t have to use RSS. There’s a subscribe by email button just to the left on every page of the blog. That’s the easiest way! Cheers, Angela
First, I cannot stop admiring your website design. A feast for the eyes! I found you somewhere in Italy! Isn’t it hilarious! Yet, we are almost neighbours. Someone is advertising the Association of Food Bloggers. Was looking for some food and wine tours in the South of Italy.
Your blog is fantastic. Can’t wait to subscribe to your Newsletter later when back from overseas.
Dear Maria, so lovely to hear from you! Your work looks very interesting and I look forward to reading more. Let me know when you’re back in Australia and I’ll add you to my list. All my best, and hopefully meet you soon… in Italy! (I wish). Angela
I love the layout of this blog. You are adorable! Glad I found your blog

Good afternoon – I will be opening a simple cafe shortly but would like to serve genuine home-made soup and am looking for a private supply contact.
It will be a small operation to start (20 seats) in the Eastern suburbs of Sydney doing Breakfast & Lunch 7 days. I want to possibly offer 2 soups a day that can change whenever – could be 1 constant and 1 changing – very open minded.
Hope you may be able to assist.
