What's Happening On Instagram?One 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 #roadtripThis is why I love a road trip. Good old fashioned country hospitality and wonderful gourmet produce. Looking forward to our 2 day stay at #theprovincialballarat Adore the luxe bright and breezy feel of our suite and it’s hard to beat in-house dining at #lolaballarat. Slow cooked Tuki Farm shoulder of lamb with saltbush followed by a kaffir lime creme brûlée after a long day on the road. #thepaddingtonfoodie #roadtrip #ballaratfood #countrychicSlurping beef pho at #eatfuh on a rainy Saturday night - the perfect antidote to a busy, busy week. Comfort food for those times I can neither face the kitchen nor rustle up the energy to put my glad rags on. #thepaddingtonfoodie #inmyneighbourhood #pho #sydneyfoodblogA delicious alternative to hot cross buns. Swedish Semla. My new addiction. Cardamom buns filled with soft almond paste and freshly whipped cream. Traditionally, the origins of Semla can be traced back to fettisdag ~ Fat Tuesday ~ when these buns were eaten as a last celebratory feast before the beginning of fasting throughout Lent. Luckily for me they’re no longer a once a year indulgence. With Shrove Tuesday just around the corner, it’s pancakes and Semla for me. #thepaddingtonfoodie #semla #inmyneighbourhood #secretsydney #swedishmoments #funkisköketCoffee with a view. It’s not everyday you get the opportunity to sip freshly grown, roasted, ground and brewed #kopilemak while taking in the stunning scenery of the #tegallalangriceterraces. We especially 💕 the swing and birds nest. So many beautiful memories off the beaten track. #thepaddingtonfoodie #ubudlife #coffeeoftheday #baliindonesiaAnother glorious start to our day... #thepaddingtonfoodie #breakfastbowl #healthychoice #balistyle #ubudeats #poolsidestyle #summerloveOn our morning walk we discovered the ultimate organic farm to table dining experience. Look closely - not sure how I would feel about crispy duck for lunch after watching the 🦆🦆roaming the fields. #thepaddingtonfoodie #farmtotable #paddocktoplate #beautifulbali #exploreubud #warungNo place I’d rather be...breakfast by the sea. #thepaddingtonfoodie #bali #canggu #summerholidays #breakfastwithaview #bliss #pancakesanyoneIs this the world’s coolest bar? 🍸🍹🚔🏢👮🏻♂️ I love the way heritage buildings have been repurposed into cultural and creative hubs in Hong Kong. The recently revitalised Tai Kwun incorporating the Old Victoria Prison, Central Magistracy and Police Station is a case in point. Stroll through the parade ground, up the Laundry Steps into the Prison Exercise Yard to discover “Behind Bars” where you can enjoy your cocktails in a refurbished prison cell. And that is just one very small part of the Tai Kwun story. I could spend days here. #thepaddingtonfoodie #visithongkong #taikwun #coolestbar #jailhouserockGood Morning ☀️All my favourites on a plate. Gravlax, ricotta and fennel. With a poached egg on the side. #thepaddingtonfoodie #breakfast #myhappyplaceSure to be our new favourite local. We were lamenting the absence of a good Thai restaurant in the Paddington end of Oxford St. We’ll let the food speak for itself. #thepaddingtonfoodie #chubbycheekspaddo #oxfordstpaddington #inourneighbourhood #paddingtoneats #checkitout #justopenedA lazy Sunday vibe. Slow cooked beef ribs and slaw. 🍺🍷🥩 #thepaddingtonfoodie #sundaylunch #beefribs #slaw #redferneats #sydneyfoodCan’t think of a more delicious way to share the joy at Easter. The Grounds’ Easter Garden. Carrot cake with cream cheese filling, green sponge “moss”, meringue mushrooms, chocolate ladybug, chocolate soil, edible daisies and an Easter egg. Almost too pretty to eat🥕🍰🍄🌼🐣 🐇💕#thepaddingtonfoodie #carrotcake #happyeaster #easterbreak #letthemeatcakeThe prettiest avocado and poached eggs on (activated charcoal) toast. #thepaddingtonfoodie #healthyeating #saturdaymorningbrunch #activatedcharcoal #avocadotoast #poachedeggs #parterregarden #sofrenchsochicDonburi 💚🍚 🍆🌶#thepaddingtonfoodie #donburibowl #healthyeating #sydneyfood #inmyneighborhood
