Shock closure of Sardine Tin and Piaf, South Bank

Things have been a little quiet here at G.G. As I've said before, life sometimes gets in the way. I hope to rectify that soon and transform this space, but in the meantime bring you snippets of relevant news.

G.G. Readers will know that I had a bit of a love affair with Sardine Tin, a South Bank gem where I spent many happy hours, eating delicious morsels and sipping on the good stuff. It was one of the places that you could always go back to. I had a love/hate relationship with the ever changing menu, longing for some familiar deliciousness, but loving being forced to try new tasty things. 

I fondly remember the steak sandwich being one of the best I've ever had and trying desperately to recreate at home with lashings of butter.

Sadly, today it has been revealed that Sardine Tin and it's sister restaurant Piaf are closing as liquidators have been called. My condolences go out to the staff, and to Simon Livingston whom, in my opinion, is a pretty great restaurateur who has obviously and sadly fallen on hard times. I'm also offering condolences to my stomach and my sense of nostalgia, as I won't get to visit again.

It's been a tough week for Brisbane restaurants as Bistro One Eleven and Ortiga also ceasing trade. The restaurant scene in QLD is constantly evolving, but it's never warming to hear of closures of such loved premises especially under the circumstances.

Inspiration to get into the garden

I've been sitting in the garden but haven't been in the patch just yet. Alas, life is still getting in the way. We have had a few cold days.

The patch is out.of.control.

It's fair to say that the vegie patch could be classified as a 'right royal mess' and is perhaps about to be declared as a natural disaster zone. The garlic plants are in and growing reasonably well, but... the weeds have started to slowly extend their sly tendrils and have populated, spreading, unchallenged by my usually keen hands, that would pluck them out and place them far away from the burgeoning shoots. Such is life sometimes.

Little known fact: My birthday is on the same day as the Boston Tea Party, only the Boston Tea Party is a few years older than me.... Does that account for my love of tea and rebellion? Perhaps.

Knife skills: Made easy

Aloha hi my long lost pals,

Sorry for the absence. As I've told you before, sometimes life gets in the way of blogging. I have to tell you, I am in the process of re-configuring things around here and will be back blogging regularly before you can say lickety split. 

Whilst you are waiting, oh so patiently, I am going to upload some kick arse infographics that somehow make things so much easier! The first of a few are going to be knife skills as I get many emails on this subject, and found these easy explanations.

Until I see you next, 

I'm going back down South now xx
