A real Perth success story. Miss Maud opened her first bakehouse in 1974.

Now Miss Maud’s is my daughter’s favourite place to have black forrest cake, and my husband loves the smorgasbord dinner in this pictured city store.Miss Maud - by westonmillingThe lady herself. Image from Weston and Milling

Aussie Icons: Pavlova

PavlovaWas chatting at English Coffee Club this week and found out that some are not acquainted with the fabulous dessert called Pavlova.

I was then inspired to make one this weekend when we had friends over for dinner.

Topped with orange, banana, kiwi fruit and passion fruit. It was delicious!

Peters by the SeaA Scarborough icon, Peters by the Sea has been around since I was a little girl.

It has resisted the high rise redevelopment all around it, maintaining its family business feel and relaxed atmosphere.
