Chorizo and Roast Veggie Bake recipe

This delicious Chorizo and Roast Veggie bake gets extra kudos for versatility. Ingredients can be added or left out as desired, and the recipe can be doubled to feed more mouths (or keep as leftovers). The chorizo can be omitted to create a vegetarian version, adding chickpeas or feta instead. We’ve sourced all of our ingredients from the The Village Markets at Kelvin Grove, including a mix of yellow and black cherry tomatoes from Heritage Tomatoes and chorizo from Randall Ferlito Fine Foods. more

How to make coffee, circa 1961

A dash of cream and two sugars, please … This is Coffee is a flashback to the home-brewing methods of 1961 America. A lesson in the correct way to make a perfect cup of joe, The Coffee Brewing Institute also takes a look at the drinking styles of different cultures, from the cafe au lait of Paris, to Venice where a cappuccino was topped with whipped cream. Whether you’re partial to a home brew or only drink espressos derived from single-origin beans at your local hole-in-the-wall cafe, watch and chuckle at this vintage video as it demonstrates how to make coffee, circa 1961.

A renewed, dapper Foxy Bean reopens in Woolloongabba

Creators of a very sexy cup of joe, Woolloongabba favourite Foxy Bean reopened this week, planting a very wide smile on locals’ faces. Acquiring the two additional buildings next door, the owners got out the hammers and knocked holes through the walls until they were happy with the cavernous space that’s now home to Foxy Bean cafe by day and (soon to be) The Foxy Drop by night. more

The Street Photographer: Bunker

Ivy vines creep from the outside in, snaking their way along the walls and ceiling of this tiny concrete cave. After discovering a war bunker constructed during World War II, Marcus Allison turned the disused space into a comforting haunt for the coffee and hot-chocolate obsessed denizens of the neighbourhood. Whether huddled inside, cradling a warm cup of organic, fairtrade hot chocolate and a book, or sprawled across the sidewalk for a post-cycle coffee with friends, Bunker is an espresso haven where community is key and source, quality and fairness are highly valued.
