Consistently Good … Funnily enough I used to dine at Blake’s Café when it was a humble brunch place. It became a degustation place after a change of ownership and got a little too rich for my blood. I believe the café has closed now.

Malaysian Food … Satay On Charcoal are regulars at a few of the Food Markets around town. They serve up quality Malaysian food and market themselves as the best Malaysian Street Food in Perth. I can’t say I disagree with them.

Fawlty Towers … It had been a terrible day. Not only was there a huge thunderstorm but the car broke down on Karrinyup Road. We had gotten stuck in a traffic jam and the alternator just stopped working. Some International Golf Tournament had caused the jam. Luckily the RAC chap who came to take a look stopped for 20 mins to give us enough power to get home. And, we made it home.
Miss Maud Pastry House, Perth CBD, 97 Murray Street, Perth WA 6000, Phone 9325 3900.
Since 1971 … Miss Maud is a Perth tradition. Established by Maud Edmiston, an immigrant from Sweden, who wanted nothing more than to cook for Perth. And, to introduce Swedish food to a new audience. Her success today is the culmination of years of hard work on her part. In 2011 Maud celebrated 40 years of trading and over 16 venues to her name. They seem to have been a part of my early life and family celebrations for a long time.
