Coolum Love and Where to Eat in Coolum Beach, Queensland

Here’s a shout out to some scrumptious eateries at Coolum, Queensland. I was lucky to enjoy a girl’s getaway for a friend’s 50th. Needless to say, we weren’t cooking! So I can give you the rundown on where we ate in Coolum. My Place – thank you for your tapas, cocktails and friendly service. Everyone raved about the garlic prawn hotpot and the linguini marinara. I loved the koftas, garlicky edamame beans and garlic pizza. I tried the passion fruit and Coolum Love cocktails – they were delightful, too! Bombay Bliss brought on the curries and naan. Yum.

San Choy Bau Recipe

  San Choy Bau is one of those dishes my kids keep asking for again and again. It’s a great one for camping because the ingredients store easily (oyster sauce should be kept in the fridge), and you only need one pan. The same amount works as a starter for a large group (gem lettuce leaves work better for this) – or feed the family as an easy carb-free lunch. I normally use chicken mince but pork mince works well, too. It can be made ahead of time and reheated when you want it!  Ingredients 1 packet dried shitake mushrooms

The Border Crossing, Boundary Street Now Queenslanders will be able to visit south of the border (and vice versa for many more New South Wales residents). Here’s a few places we recommend and would appreciate your support around the NSW/QLD border.  1. Bread Social You’ll find this newish cafe/bakery at Bay Street, Tweed Heads, NSW. It’s a great thing to return to, when I visit mum nearby. You just need to check out the photos below to see why. I am not one for custard – maybe the odd vanilla slice – but their Portuguese tarts are divine. I’m salivating

Help farmers with biosecurity as you travel

As Australians grapple with the continued threat and impacts of the Covid-19 virus, the local melon industry is hoping the new sense of understanding around the spread of disease will be applied to the horticultural sector. As part of a broader biosecurity project, Melons Australia has developed a video series to highlight the part that travelling holiday makers can play in maintaining strong on-farm biosecurity. The three videos explain in simple terms the easy steps travellers can take to make sure they don’t unwittingly take pests or diseases into melon growing areas of Australia.
