In any part of the world, food is a core medium of personal expression- evolving with the culture and its people, resulting in a highly accurate representation of that city. Sydney is no exception. With its multicultural demographic, it is arguably (I may be bias) one of the best cities to encompass a little bit of every type of food and culture. For that, we Sydney-siders should be more than thankful- unfortunately this revelation only occurred to me recently in my late-teenhood. However there is light at the end of the tunnel! Recall the phrase "No time like the present!" Well thats your new motto, and that along with the recommendations of yours truely you will be readily prepared to delve back into your city.
We (my sister and I) are attracted to the "smaller" establishments but are no less immune to the raved Grounds of Alexandria or Brewtown. This fortunately allows for a vast array of places to be discovered and for classic loves to be rekindled! And so "The Brunch Club" was formed as a tribute to our brunch/ breakfast/lunch fetish! Our hauntings include the Surry Hills, Glebe, Darlinghurst, Newtown, Enmore, Summer Hill, Alexandria, Bondi, Coogee and the hypothetical list continues to spill from your selected device's screen. Please feel free to send us personal opinions, well constructed rebuttals (be nice) and recommendations through the comments!

Oh don't get me wrong! We can cook too! Yes, to have a decided opinion of anything, one must also have a background in that which one critiques! So its usually Mimi that cooks but I also may have a hand in the occasional bake. Alas we have a segment called "Born and Bread" (guess who's the pun master that birthed that!) filled with original and reinvented recipes, inspiration from the greats like Nigella Lawson, Donna Hay, Jamie Oliver, Heston, and Adriano Zumbo (Story interlude: I saw him in first class on a plane ride from Melb to Sydney in Dec 2014)
