These are a few of my favourite things (this month).

These are a few of my favourite things (this month).

This week marks my first month at Team Tourism, having recently relocated from Melbourne. I'm gradually getting to know the place, but there's just so much to see and do (and eat). It's a tough gig.

I've actually been to Barwon Heads' prettiest provadore a few times, but Annie's never disappoints. During a recent trip with some journos we sampled smoked salmon, shakshuka and a breakfast bowl so deliciously healthy it scared me. Thankfully, I also grabbed a couple of pesto and parmesan sausage rolls for the road. Balance restored.

The waterfront isn't really edible, but as someone looking to live closer to the sea it's become a special part of my morning. I love starting my day with a wander past the Yacht Club, Marina View, the Carousel and the Pier. Apologies in advance for all the 'artsy' abstract photos.

Walking around town last week, I made it to Little Mallop street, home to the Hot Chicken Project. Worth the wait during the busy lunch hour, the crew inside were super helpful and the chicken so good I didn't even notice the roadworks right outside (which have now finished).

Catching up with Chris and the team at Sage Choice Farm was another highlight, having no-nonsense chats about innovations in sustainable farming, the true meaning of free-range and meeting some of the happiest hens around. Plus, thanks to their Community Supported Agriculture subscription service, I now receive a monthly delivery of amazing meat in the mail.

Like I said, it's a tough gig.
