Several years ago, when a friend called up and informed me that he’d been able to secure a table at El Bulli for the following month and asked if my wife and I would like to join him, we immediately said yes, and started to plan an impromptu holiday to Barcelona around the dinner reservation.

Bill Granger’s coconut bread

coconut bread 2

It was one of those perfect moments in time, when I was completely relaxed, basking in the warm glow of the setting sun, sitting reclined and reading a beautiful Bill Granger cookbook.

More Cafe, Busselton WA

It was a windy and damp day, and after the jetty trip, we were all hungry and in need of some serious warming up.  So we hit More Café, a quaint spot in the heart of Busselton town, and was drawn in by the inviting smell of fresh coffee and the wide variety rustic and colourful bakes on their counter.
