Melbourne Epicure = Deeelicious!

Yesterday I braved the cold and headed down to visit a couple of markets in Northcote. I met the very lovely Cathie from Melbourne Epicure and brought home these wickedly tasty treats (that's not completely true... only the lemon tart made it home after stopping at my sister's house for afternoon tea... and when I say made it home, can being in the house long enough to make a cup of tea before devouring the tart qualify as "made it home"..???!!!).


I also chatted with Madeleine and with the lovely Felicity and said hello to her gorgeous gaggle of Hoots. Because I got to the markets in the afternoon, but because it was so cold and windy, I missed seeing the girls and goodies from Pepperberry & Co, Finki, Curlypops and Polly Pratt.... damn the Melbourne weather!

Your treats look so yum, and you sound like it was a nice little social meet !I hope you have a warmer day today...the weather has been miserable here too...I hope it makes you feel a little better!

I'm so sorry I missed you!
I stocked up on Melbourne Epicure treats and retreated to a friends house for a nice hot cuppa.

Being a sucker for a lemon tart, I am currently experiencing an unattractive drooling event. Off to convince myself that an arrowroot biscuit (only option in the end-of-week pantry) is just the ticket...

At least you got the treats and the cuppa I guess! They certainly look yummo. :)

Oh, wow! I didn't realise so many of us packed up and left. It was a shame to miss you, but I'm glad you found such tasty goodies to take 'home'... or to the car :-)

So sorry we didn't stick it out, and hang round till 3. Cathy's treats kept us all going strong for the time that we were there(:
I must say though, I challenge your love of her lemon tarts, with my bigger love of her pear tarts.mmm mmmmm

Hi,

Thats so terrible of us to all have packed up and left, it would have been great to have met. At least you got to have some yummy treats. I`m now in love with the bread.
