Never one to shy away from flavour, Alfredo’s Pizzeria has launched a new menu for summer, along with a Vespa delivery service. Warm-weather Italian favourites like grilled peaches wrapped in prosciutto come nestled in a salad, while arancini come stuffed with succulent mushrooms and a stringy centre of mozzarella. We hear the new American Idiot pizza of braised beef short rib, gorgonzola, pancetta and barbecue sauce is well-worth the napkin-heavy mess it leaves you in.

One Eleven launches modern grill restaurant

After opening less than a year ago in the One One One building in Brisbane City, One Eleven has shed its former image and opted for an entirely new menu and approach. In collaboration with new head chef Mathias Andersson, founder Philip Johnson has pared back the restaurant’s menu to create an offering specifically tailored to the corporate crowd. Taking inspiration from the modern bar and grill restaurants peppered throughout Singapore and Hong Kong, the bistro has simplified the ordering process with the goal of speeding up the wait time for time-constrained city workers. The new menu is split into sections, inviting diners to build their own meals by selecting their protein of choice, an accompanying side and a finishing sauce.

The Birth of Sake
Food & Drink

Step inside a Japanese sake brewery

While it may only take a second to slip down the throat, the art of making sake is by no means easy. The labour-intensive process requires workers at the fifth-generation Tedorigawa brewery in Japan to rise before dawn and spend long hours handcrafting the award-winning concoctions that are enjoyed all over the world. The documentary The Birth of Saké is a project by filmmakers Erik Shirai, Makoto Sasa and Tara Hohenberger, which takes viewers inside a traditional sake brewery. A work in progress, the film was successfully funded through Kickstarter last week, which will allow the team to film the final scenes and embark on post-production work. Stay tuned to the blog for updates on completion. more
