While these Top 5 lists are in no way absolute, here are some of my favourite food, drink and travel discoveries from around town and around the world.
Food is all about sharing. Whether it’s around a beautifully set table, on a picnic rug or writing about my favourite restaurants … nothing gives me more pleasure than sharing the food I love with others.
I love the way wine completes a meal. I adore pinot noir (Aussie and Burgundian), Australian riesling (aged and young), Sherry (especially Manzanilla and Palo Cortado) and natural wines. Cocktails are fun too!
Crossing high Swiss passes in spring, exploring back roads of Sardinia and Lombardy with locals, road trips through the Scottish Highlands, Iran and Faroe Islands; these are a few of my favourite travel experiences.
