This week I may have found my new favourite place to go in the Sydney CBD. It's called Le Pub and it serves up Parisian, bistro-style meals that are just gorgeous. I don't think I have a cross word to say about this place. I went there with my pal for lunch and we shared a couple of plates - this confit of duck leg was my favourite and those dehydrated mandarin segments were perfect with the rich, silky duck. They have an impressive wine selection and I didn't feel guilty at all about drinking a glass of the Cruse Blanc de Blanc on a Monday at lunch...I'll be back.
I went off to Bowral with The Bearded Gamers family for a wedding. Bowral is such a beautiful place and on this occasion, everything was misty, still and green. It was the day after (yet another) epically hot day in Sydney so the change was definitely welcome.
I was sorting out some of my cutlery that I use for props in my recipe posts. I like the way everything just fell when I dumped them in my pie dish...
This is for my next post. I had this song in my head as I made it...
My blogging friend Tania from My Kitchen Stories sent me some truffled anchovies on behalf of Italian food and wine importers Lario International!
I can and will eat anchovies right out of the jar - but the fact that they are marinated in black truffle oil...well, things have been taken to a whole, new level.
Tania was so generous that she sent me one extra jar to give to one of my lucky readers! All you have to do is leave an idea for what I should cook with my truffled anchovies in the comments*. I will choose my favourite recipe/idea to cook and post it here on The Littlest Anchovy in two weeks time. The lucky recipient will be announced on my next "My Week That Was.." next week.
* Sorry guys, this giveaway is only open to residents of Australia.
And that was my week that was!
