This is very good news for all the Foodies in the Inner West.
It always surprises me when Sydneysiders tell me they rarely cross the Harbour Bridge and maybe I am becoming like that after 13 years here: I have never been to the Essential in Crows Nest, and I could not wait to see the new store in Rozelle !
So were a number of other people last Saturday, as the shop didn't open until 10.00am.
But today, I had no excuses , so I went...
The Essential was putting on a show with Lyndey Milan cooking for us chocolate brownies, a rhubard Tatin tart and a microwaved Porcini risotto which blew me away!
The shop looks gorgeous, with a great assortment of cookware, crockery, conserves and a nice coffee corner.
A specially fitted commercial kitchen is the perfect location for all the cooking demonstrations and classes.
So, rush there wherever side of the Bridge you are, like this couple today who made the trip from Blackheath in the Blue Mountains!
Chapeau...et merci Lyndey for a great show!
