Chef of the Month: Damian Brabender

Eat Canberra

Food, food, glorious food. We all know that Canberra is home to some pretty amazing restaurants, cafes, pubs and everything in between. These establishments  offer an incredible selection of high quality food using local, fresh produce.

We all love a good #foodpic but what about the masterminds and creators behind the food you see, eat and salivate over? The ones who spends hours creating menus to tantalise your tastebuds and bring plates of food art to your table that makes you “ooh” and “ahh”. That’s right, I’m talking about the chefs.

We love everything food related at Eat Canberra which is why we’re bringing you our Chef of the Month article! We’ll be introducing you to a new chef each month so you can see who’s behind the wonderful food you eat. Continue reading Chef of the Month: Damian Brabender

Canberra’s newest cafe: Artisan Canberra

Eat Canberra

Determined, driven and passionate are words I would use to describe Yanna Dascarolis. Simple, stylish and sophisticated is how I would describe her new venture, Artisan Canberra. Yanna and her husband Peter are both lawyers but they’ve always had a passion for food. They’ve owned a number of coffee carts in the past few years and Yanna’s family have owned cafes in Canberra for 20 years. Continue reading Canberra’s newest cafe: Artisan Canberra

Behind the scenes of GIO Stadium Canberra

Eat Canberra

Do you remember seeing the photo above on Facebook or Instagram last month? Well let me tell you where I got these crispy, flavoursome pork belly baos from. For the second Holden State of Origin match I attended a special event at the GIO Stadium Canberra, organised by Danielle Cleary Events. I didn’t know that the GIO Stadium Canberra held events like this so it was a nice surprise and I’m really glad I know now! Continue reading Behind the scenes of GIO Stadium Canberra

Soup of the week: Quick and Easy Laksa

Eat Canberra

I love a big bowl of spicy laksa any time of the year but it’s always better during winter because it warms you up when you need it the most! Laksa is one of my favourite Asian soups although it’s a tough competition between the creamy, flavoursome laksa and an aromatic bowl of Vietnamese pho. I love going out for laksa with friends or for a cheap date night but it’s also really easy to make at home. You can whip up this cheat’s version of Laksa pretty quickly and you could even have some leftovers to take for lunch the next day. Continue reading Soup of the week: Quick and Easy Laksa

An exquisite evening at the luxurious Hyatt Hotel Canberra

Eat Canberra

Truffle – a strong-smelling underground fungus that resembles an irregular, rough-skinned potato. While it doesn’t sound very appealing these balls of fungus are a culinary delight and just a slither can transform a dish from ordinary to extraordinary. The average truffle weighs 30-60g and can cost anywhere from $30-$75 but a little goes a long way. Truffles are featured on the finest menus in Canberra, Australia, Paris, New York and around the world. You will see them everywhere at the moment because June marked the beginning of truffle season in Canberra. Continue reading An exquisite evening at the luxurious Hyatt Hotel Canberra

Winter in Canberra is often a time of hibernation and your social life can freeze up like your windscreen in the mornings – if you’re one of the unlucky ones like me who parks their car outside! This winter I have kissed hibernation goodbye because I’m determined to get out and about and enjoy all that Canberra has to offer. Even if it is a bit colder, it’s no excuse! Get your layers on and get out and explore our beautiful city.  Continue reading Winter specials at The Chairman Group restaurants
