The sun goes down every day, but pretty sunset views still make me smile. Looking out over the city and the river in Perth was a wonderland of lights – sky, traffic, windows, and that mysterious green tower. It was also perfectly timed – the celestial spectacular had finished by the time my incredible dinner arrived. Back to back, but not overlapping, sensory experiences.
You’ve probably gathered by now that food plays a large part in my life. This evening I had the great pleasure of dining at Wildflower in Perth. It is fine dining with a focus on Australian native ingredients and a view over the rooftops and river. What did I order? Jarrah smoked kangaroo with pepperberry, native herb pesto and pickled radish, and a tomato salad with burrata, lemon balm, aniseed myrtle and stone fruit, accompanied by a glass of tempranillo. Rounding it off beautifully, my charming waiter presented me with two divine finger lime chocolate balls to finish.
