Well, this is my fifth attempt to start a blog. And hopefully this one sticks. I really wanted to get a blog going again because I'd like to chronicle my time in Melbourne and share it with loved ones be it the random thoughts I have or the dishes I cook. I think that I've aptly titled my blog so because this is how I go about life. I often find it hard to settle down as I am, well...chasing utopia.

What better way to kick start my blog than with a sampling of food Ive had thus far!

Roast Suckling Pig with apple sauce
at The Commoner

Pan fried semolina gnocchi with sauteed wild mushroom, thyme and ricotta salt
at The Commoner

Toasted brioche with smoked salmon, poached egg and hollandaise sauce
at Cavallero

I crown thee the best hot choc in the world!
at we'll keep this one a secret

The 'Shady' - poached eggs in rich chorizo salsa with dukkah and grilled flat bread
at Auction Rooms

Please note that all this gluttony was done over a period of time....maybe a week? I'm always on the look out for food adventures! Say hi in the comment box. Would love to know what people think of my daily musings.

Much love,
Michelle, 11 degrees
