On Wednesday morning I woke up with a sudden craving for breakfast at Luxe Bakery Café in Newtown, the area of Sydney where my parents live. When staying in Sydney we visited Luxe several times, and every time I ordered the same thing: house-cured trout with potato hash, poached eggs and truffle oil. And now, on drizzly a […]Read more "Latkes with Smoked Trout and Truffle Oil"
I haven’t made granola before – I find it too sweet for an everyday breakfast.
