2014 on Daisybutter is shaping up to be fashion-filled with plenty in between. This year I wanted to expand my content and become more interactive with the community that lurks around these parts, so I'll be introducing some of my best-loved ladies to fill up the gaps of the blog. To start the course, the oh so lovely Jane who blogs at Deluminators all the way in Australia will be your food and travel girl. So without further ado, over to Jane...

Hey! I'm Jane and I blog over at Deluminators. Michelle's enlisted me to do a food feature now and then for Daisybutter. My usual feeding ground is Sydney, but I've just returned from a month in Europe, so I figured I'd kickstart this with a travel food diary.


Nowhere does Christmas markets like Germany! So we made sure to get our fill of bratwurst and mulled wine in Berlin. Also in Berlin is White Trash Fast Food, which does amazing burgers (there is also a tattoo parlour in the restaurant, if you're so inclined).


Spätzle, which is a dish of noodles covered in cheese sauce. I'm here for anything covered in melted cheese.


Burgermeister manages to make makes eating under an overpass in a converted toilet block appealing.


To the left is a Czech dish called svíčková - pork in a creamy gravy with cranberry sauce. On the right is fish and chips from Fish & Chips in Prague, which also has nice roast chicken if you're not in the mood for fish.


More Christmas market food in Munich. The stuff on the right is deep fried potato cake with applesauce on a waffle (the reasoning behind the waffle is a mystery to me) - I started feeling really sorry for my arteries after the second bite.


In Paris and spending more euros than we could afford on fancy sweets. Macarons from Laduree and hot chocolate at Angelina (it is quite as good as everyone says).


Some pulled pork and mac & cheese at Porky's in Camden. In hindsight it would have been better to get some toast with the pulled pork, on its own it gets a bit much towards the end.


We ate pretty well in London. Top left is Bone Daddies in Soho. I'm no ramen connoisseur but my friend said it was okay, but apparently there's better ramen in Sydney. Then there's Shake Shack of course, Byron Hambugers (which does a really good chicken burger) and fish and chips from Jamie's Union Jacks. As you can see, I have the culinary preferences of a five year old.


While in London, we also discovered the magic of a big breakfast. We liked Bill's, and enjoyed The Diner's pancakes, but our favourite breakfast was at Raoul's in Notting Hill with their extremely orange eggs and really nice toast.


Our last stop, Edinburgh; pulled pork at Oink and bacon with pancakes at Mum's Comfort Food.

Hopefully you've enjoyed this post! If Michelle will have me, I'll be back with more from Sydney! Jane x

  1. This post has made me sooooo hungry! It all looks delicious. Germany is heaven when it comes to food, I was first introduced to spaetzle when I did my German Exchange in high school and it's now one of my favourite dishes x

  7. Wow all the food looks so amazing! I'm usually too cheap to buy restaurant food when I travel, but the food is all apart of the experience right?
