Chocolate, Cheese and the Kirribilli Markets

Hello there! As I've mentioned on my previous post (here) I would like to show you some of the best chocolates you can find in Sydney to make the perfect chocolate dessert.

First stop was Simon Johnson, the purveyor of quality foods with stores at Woollahra, Pyrmont, Alexandria and Castlecrag now there really is no excuse to not pay this shop a visit. I was like a kid in a candy store looking for that perfect bar of chocolate...

So I got a little sidetracked...

I was in cheese lovers heaven...there were sooo many types of cheeses.

 Lucky enough, we had complimentary cheese tasting.

My weakness...soft and creamy cheeses.
Some beautiful French chocolates from Mazet.
We've bagged ourselves a selection of Valrhona chocolates and a lil bag of salt.
Limited edition Valrhona Chocolate according to Frenchie.
I fell in love with this copper cookware - they provide the best thermal conductivity for even heating.
My little adventure continues, next stop Kirribilli...

My fav. was this custom made lamp. The seashells were collected from the south coast beaches.
brazilian chocolates
These handmade chocolates inspired by Brazilian desserts were phenomenal! Love the leopard prints.
To Die For. Enough said!
Freshly baked goods. Pretty sure the almond tart was screaming out to us "EAT ME!!!"

strawberries organic

Barbecue beef on the grill with a generous serve of mashed potatoes. A must try!!!
My first Quesadilla (Mexican-style stuffed pancake) but certainly not my last!
