It’s now 2018, but at the beginning of 2017 one question kept rolling around in my head like a giant Bliss Ball…
How could I combine my passion for eating, writing café reviews, and being wowed by eye-catching street art and architecture on my urban strolls around Sydney and beyond?
After spending time juggling a food blog, publishing a cookbook, trying to make money in the food area while staying independent of sponsorship, hosting themed foodie cooking classes, and eating my way from Sydney to Boston, via New Orleans and New Zealand, I discovered the obvious fit for me – and studied to become a qualified Cert IV Tour Guide.
For most of 2017 my study took me away from creating and testing recipes and writing, and I had less time or bandwidth to update this blog.
I’m now a qualified tour guide and Pimp My Plate Tours is my new food walking tour business – this is still the same blog, but now my day to day focus is on my tour guests and creating tours that share a sense of place as well as taste.
As I research new destinations for my tours, I enjoy getting an insight into where Sydney eats and I can share a taste of Sydney dining with you here, through this cafe review blog. And over on Instagram I post whatever catches my eye or makes me smile: @pimpmyplatetours
