Publicity, Press, Planes and Production!

I’ve had some crazy exciting weeks in my life but they mostly happened while traveling form one country to another or the week leading up to our wedding. But nothing compares to this week, it was fun fast and fantastic. Melbourne publicity day was always going to be fun hosted by Shane Jacobson. Sydney launch at the “Bourke Street Bakery” lived up to its reputation, the joy of baking was visually spectacular.

A day in Oakleigh or better known as “Little Athens”. The feeling is truly cosmopolitan and for a minute there I was transported with all the sights and sounds of Greece. First stop “Niko’s -Oakleigh Quality Cakes” and when I say cakes I mean shelf after shelf of cakes of every size and variety but especially the traditional ones like Kadaifi and Baklava. Thank you allowing Paul Mercurio, myself, and the channel 9 team to film amongst all the busy trade.

Next stop “Kalimera – Souvlaki Art” this could be the best souvlaki house in Melbourne and I highly recommend taking a trip to Oakleigh. They are dedicated and very patriotic to the food that they serve, fresh flavoursome and made with passion. Cheers to you all and thank you for welcoming us with open arms.

The fun didn’t stop there! “Vanilla – Cakes and Lounge” was next on the list and we really did  leave the best for last. Now I want to give you a few descriptive words about “Vanilla” Delicious, Gorgeous, Delightful and Dedicated. I had the pleasure of meeting some of the wonderful family that run this sensational establishment a vision that has truly come to fruition. Their menu is as beautiful as the exceptional reception we received by not just one member of the staff I mean ALL the staff. Chef Gerry is brilliant, his love for great greek cooking goes beyond everyones expectation. His personality is present on every plate! My thought now “When can we come back”. For the ultimate modern Greek experience “Vanilla” is a must. They have it all. Food and service all wrapped up with the heart and soul of Greece and its all in Oakleigh.

    It was great to be there yesterday to see you having fun. You looked so natural in front of the camera and I’m sure the audience will love you too.
