What's Happening On Instagram?Chilli, sesame and peanut crispy chicken 💕 #thepaddingtonfoodie #lazylunch #summerinsydneySydney always puts on a spectacular NYE fireworks display. We hope the light sprinkle of rain that fell at midnight is a good omen for our fire and drought ravaged communities. May we all keep safe, happy and well in 2020. #thepaddingtonfoodie #mckellpark #darlingpoint #sydnye #hello2020 #prayforrainRounding out 2019 with a few of my favourite things. #thepaddingtonfoodie #poachedeggs #gravlax #asparagus #icedlatte #fratelliparadiso #endof2019We’ve loved soaking up the festive spirit in this wonderful city. #thepaddingtonfoodie #julfest #copenhagenlife #denmark🇩🇰It seems like there’s a bakery or pastry shop on almost every corner.

And...yes lurking in the background a side serve of truffle fries. In a word YUM 😋This is what travel is all about; trying out new flavour combinations. So many cafes to explore on a rainy Copenhagen afternoon and we’re so glad we chose this one. #thepaddingtonfoodie #copenhagenlife #whattodoonarainyday #chickenandwaffles #trufflefries #watermelon #cafelife #copenhagenfoodDanish breakfast. Oatmeal with Apple, Crushed Almonds and Caramel Sauce or Skyr (Icelandic Yoghurt) with Apple Compote, Granola and Fresh Fruit. Very Hygge. #thepaddingtonfoodie #porridgebowl #skyr #hyggelife #copenhagenfood #denmarklifeCardamom Croissant 🥐 A small but delicious snack for our train trip to Helsingor to visit Hamlet’s Castle 🏰 and the Maritime Museum 🚣♀️ 🛳 of Denmark 🇩🇰 #thepaddingtonfoodie #cardamombuns #croissants #copenhagenfood #traintravel #denmarklifeHow do you like your smørrebrød? Discovering and loving these traditional Danish open faced sandwiches. Originally known as smør og brød which loosely translates as butter on bread, each of these decidedly fancy toppings sit on top of a thin slice of buttered rugbrød, a delicious dense yet fluffy rye bread filled with seeds. There’s chicken salad with apple, mushroom, crispy bacon and gem lettuce, pumpkin with kale and almonds, and crumbed plaice with prawn, lemon, picked tomatoes and micro greens. All washed down with a glass (or two) of akvavit. Can’t wait to recreate these when I get home. #thepaddingtonfoodie #copenhagenfood #smørrebrød #danishfood #rugbrød #sandwichlove #opensandwichOn the hunt for cinnamon scrolls. We didn’t have to search too hard or too long to find this delicious little bakery in Jægersborggade already decked out for Christmas. Adore the "kanelsnurrer" made with Valrhona chocolate. #thepaddingtonfoodie #copenhagenfood #cinammonbuns #jægersborggade #danishpastry #denmarklifeOne of the joys of travel is discovering new and different food combinations. Some are quirky like the chocolate coated potato crisps in Hokkaido, Japan and now this...a deep fried chicken wing and donut replete with sunglasses 😎 at the Texas State Fair. Thanks for sharing Matt. #thepaddingtonfoodie #bigredchickenbread #texasstatefair #quirkyfood #wishiwasthereAn early impromptu birthday celebration. Highlight of our long lazy lunch? A whole free-range roast chicken with spring onion and sugar snaps with sides of roasted carrots, salsa verde and chips. #thepaddingtonfoodie #chiswickwoollahra #inmyneighbourhood #sydneyfood #longlazylunch #roastchickenThis morning I had the pleasure of picking up my very first Sift Produce box from Fred’s in Paddington. So excited to return home and find new season broadbeans in my bounty. Time for a Spring inspired broadbean and pea bruschetta with pecorino and mint. Can’t wait. I’ve long been an advocate of sustainability and low food miles and was delighted to meet the gorgeous Georgie Neal. Her produce boxes are sourced directly from small local farms, the majority of whom use organic &/or biodynamic practices. Today’s box courtesy of NSW farms - four in the Hawkesbury and one each in the Southern Highlands and Orange. Love your passion and authenticity Georgie. #thepaddingtonfoodie #siftproduce #georgieneal #inmyneighbourhood #producebox #supportlocalproducers #lowfoodmiles #organic #biodynamicfood #sydneyfoodAnother charming stop. More good old fashioned country hospitality and an incredible steak burger. A world away from the freeway roadhouse pit stop. #thepaddingtonfoodie #sirgeorgejugiong #countrynsw #jugiongeats #roadtrip
