Thank you

thank+you

I would like to sincerely thank the wonderful, kind, and generous people at Sydney Seaplanes, Gastro Park, Buon Ricordo, Longrain, A tavola, Three Blue Ducks, Pendolino, Billy Kwong, Salt Meats Cheese, Ormeggio, Sydney Seafood School, Sake, Sopra, Ghermez, and Pilu.

With their help, I was able to raise $11,200 for the Leukaemia Foundation of Australia.

The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the care and cure of patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders. They receive no ongoing government funding and rely solely on the generosity of the Australian community.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you. It will long be remembered.

Gastro Park – seriously edgy food

I remember when this place opened. Oh, the endless jibes about the name, what were they thinking? But go there and you’ll forget the innuendo and realise exactly what they are on about.  Its a gastronomic playdate for your senses.  This is clever, creative food at its finest, and I’ll be back to experience it again.

It was a lunchtime visit, and I have to say the service was a bit slapdash and overfamiliar.  We also had to almost jump up and down to get their attention on occasion, hopefully they’ve got it together since then.

Given its proximity to Kings Cross, I’ve heard a dinner visit can be, ahem, colourful, with more than the food to look at. Kings Cross restaurants have been doing it tough of late, with Bistro Ortolan sadly closing and other restauranteurs saying they are finding it difficult.  I just don’t think its appealing as a suburb when you’re going out for fine dining. Hopefully this place does not have the same fate.
