four days and four breakfasts

By some weird string of events (possibly La Nina?) we can no longer boast to our Victorian friends that all is sunny in Sydney. Normally their jealous sighs can be heard when we pronounce (maybe a little smugly) that yes once again we are at the beach and the weather is picture perfect. But alas it is now us that have to huff and puff. Melbourne really turned it on this unofficial long weekend in weather and breakfast snacking stakes.

Each morning we were greeted by another delightful sunny wake-up call. We sampled smashed feta and avocado at three bags full, awesome coffee and sake cured salmon at St. Ali, thick slabs of grilled cheese and thyme toast at Friends of Mine and house-made smoky beans at Pillar of salt.

But rest assured Sydney we're back (possibly a few extra kilos too) and ready to sell this Saturday at Bondi Farmers market. Our gleaming 120kg shaved ice block will be on display too so come and grab a shaved ice and cool off (hopefully) from the Sydney summer heat. And yes Sydney our hearts and tummies still belong to you.

Pillar of Salt

what all good breakfast need - cauliflower. Three bags full.

the freezer is pop-a-block

It has been a big week and an even bigger weekend is planned. The freezer is stacked with these frosty treats. Head to Bondi Farmers market (9-1pm) or Manly school Village (8.30-4pm) tomorrow to take the pressure down. We have a special guest appearance from Tommy running the Manly camp so call in and boost his sales. See you all tomorrow.

thanks Will M!

bondi to bread and circus

Despite a grey old sky we had a great day at Bondi. It was wonderful to see all our customers after the Christmas break.

With the car loaded we smoked it to Alexandria to check out the new wholefood canteen bread and circus. The delightful name was definitely a big drawcard. Nestled behind Campos on Fountain Street, bread and circus is a beautiful light space scattered with treasures. Bison plates and jugs, pastel hued hydrangeas and delicious food.

We completely over ordered - not unusual but also unavoidable with this menu. Busting for a chicken schnitzel and potato salad sandwich, we were seconds too late with the last being sold minutes before. However, we loaded up on potato, kale, chive and parmesan soup (the side is huge for $7) and a rainbow plate of salad - earthy beetroots with yoghurt and hazelnut, char-grilled zucchini with summer sweet tomatoes dressed with lashing of lemon and oil. Triumphant.

Last but not least (this is actually a small lie as we started the meal with one and also finished it as well) was the awesome chocolate chunk cookie scattered with sea salt and a big handful of hazelnuts.
An awesome Saturday - check out bread and circus now.

Yes we photographed the cookie twice!

Ice ice Bondi

Pure Pops are back in Bondi and it's the first market for twenty twelve. We've had a great break chilling at the beach and sampling our new creations. Head down this weekend and try a shaved ice from our 120kg mega block. Or if pops take your fancy cool off with watermelon and lime, mango pineapple and passionfruit, classic vanilla malt shake, strawberry rhubarb and vanilla ripple or pine-lime. Pumped for a hot one.

pool pony

Ok so, perhaps not completely pop related but we're obsessed with this pool and can't stop dreaming about it. Imagine yourself floating on a neon pool pony eating copious amounts of watermelon Pure Pops. Giddy up!

Another cracker from note to self

happy new year from pure pops

Pure Pops is back and looking forward to kicking off twenty twelve with Kings Cross Organic market this Saturday. We had an awesome break in Tasmania - eating, drinking and being merry.  Here are some of our Tassie eating treasures.

Pigeon Hole's delicious danish.

The Nook farmers market.

Salad and raspberries straight from Tony's garden. 

Now we're back in Pop HQ and busy making pops. Hit the market this weekend and try summer in a pop - our beautiful watermelon and lime flavour.

Thanks to Em from Gourmet Traveller for this delicious recipe, prawn, haloumi and watermelon salad. You know what they say - you can never have too much watermelon.
