New Farm Confectionery sweetens up Brunswick Street

With a vision to introduce Brisbane to the world of adult confectionery, New Farm Confectionery has opened the doors to its first permanent store off Brunswick Street. more

1940s-style diner NKB Express opens in Indooroopilly

First they brought you the likes of Nantucket Kitchen & Bar, and now just a stone’s throw away they’ve unveiled the sweet new NKB Express. Maintaining an American bent, but this time throwing back to the epic era of the 1940s, TJ and Kim Peabody’s new cafe and restaurant takes cues from the milkbars and diners of yesteryear with sepia tones and olive-green booths. Focused on fast takeaway and casual dining, the venue offers many of the original Nantucket favourites such as the famous cherry pie and house-made ice-cream, plus plenty of gourmet burgers, bagels, hot dogs and waffles to round out the menu.

La Macelleria gelateria opens in Teneriffe

While moseying through the streets of Bologna in Italy, you’ll spot a surplus of gelato shops nestled between the mandatory restaurants, butchers, espresso bars and chemists. This glut of palate pleasers tallies around the 180 mark, resulting in a city dense with connoisseurs of both the making and noshing fields. The city’s staple flavour is Crema Bologna, made from milk, yolks, lemon peel and vanilla. In spring, when strawberries are lush and plentiful, families will drop by a gelateria to collect a litre of this gelato to take home for a post-lunch dessert, dressing each serving in the succulent red berries. more
