Revive the senses through feel-good food. Just do anything food-wise, no matter how small, that makes you zing: pour hot water over fresh herbs for a fragrant tea; buy a whole organic pumpkin for a kitchen table centrepiece; thank a farmer at a farmers' market; put your hands on warm earth; spot a local rosemary bush; snag some for your lamb roast or your hair (Why not? Go nuts!); and comment to share your feel-good spring snippet. If stuck for ideas, mine are yours. Let's unite in support of feel-good food and ethical food practices. Thanks to all too who supported my Spring Feel-Good Food Project. I had a blast! While my food interests are diverse, so is my food writing history (and lifestyle freelance writing and corporate writing, yada...). Please see below right and my new FoodLit Website. Yeah! Please also subscribe for occasional food-fuelled news, ventures and opportunities.

Oasis Emporium. Anyone for Brekkie? Or Cheese? Day 63, 28 To Go ....

Our favourite local food store, Oasis Bakery, isn't just a bakery, it's an emporium that just had a makeover including new deli (with more than 100 local and imported cheeses), dessert bar and fresh produce section.

There's a buzz around town, in store and, of course, in my belly. After today's Lebanese breakfast (which also come with chilli labneh balls) with my daughter and a serious exploration of all the latest additions, it's a thumbs up. Don't underestimate the size of this 'store' with more. It even has its own information booth, with new Mornington store planned on a 1.6 hectare site. Mind blowing. 

Even if I don't eat cheese, I'm excited. Sometimes the excitement is in the concept, the visual, the watching a business grow from a tiny, single-fronted shop to a mega pleasure palace - and, of course, I do eat prosciutto, good ham, pickled things, nougat, halva, turkish delight and, and, and..

Have you been? More importantly, what did you eat?
