I have a confession to make.
I am obsessed with food. But not your fast food finger-lickin’-McHungry-Sub-Hut types… I’m obsessed with quality good food. And it has been burning a hole in my pocket for the best part of 2006. And I fear that 2007 will be no different. In fact, it probably be worse.
This is no thanks to the ever-increasing pile of The Age's Good Food Guides that I have accumulated over the last couple of years. This is in no part to me buying them… they’ve been gifts and freebies (and who in their right mind says no to a freebie?)
There are no less than approx. 4000 restaurants in Melbourne and the number increases consistently, as does the number of restaurants I want to visit. Each of my food guides has hundreds of tabs for places I want to visit. Of late, I’ve dined and become as giddy as a kid at Christmas at some of my new favourite restaurants. One of which is I Carusi – an traditional Italian pizzeria in Brunswick and St Kilda. Their thin-crust pizzas and their dessert pizzas are to die for!
And being the true Italian that I am, I don’t believe in a no-carb diet. People who are on those diets or any diet should be slapped Zsa-Zsa Gabor style silly. I believe in eating in moderation. Enjoy your food and appreciate the craft of cooking. I do.
