One of the best things about being a food blogger is sampling ALL of the amazing chocolates thanks to Smooth FM. Last Saturday we had the pleasure to celebrate decadent desserts and chocolate designs from the best patisseries, chocolatiers and ice-creameries when the Smooth Festival of Chocolate had returned to The Rocks.
Don’t know where to start…
Spread of “CHOCOLATE GOODIE BAG”
Pssst… I have a whole stash of these Tim Tams. Who doesn’t like Tim Tam O’cloak?! Put those Tim Tams in my bag and nobody gets hurt. For the first time Arnott’s Tim Tam joined the festival at the Arnott’s Tim Tam Temptation Tent allowing chocolate lovers like me to experience Australia’s favourite indulgences.
Taking on the TIM TAM CHALLENGE!
It was a pleasure seducing La Renaissance chocolate tart. Garnishing this tart with chocolate included fresh raspberries, sprinkles of pistachio and a gold leaf gives this dessert a truly luxurious finish.
Beautifully smooth La Renaissance chocolate tart
We looked forward to trying some authentic handmade chocolates from Australian Patisserie Academy. We indulged each heavenly chocolate pieces. DAT CHOCOLATE SCENT! 😀 ❤

Right before we attended the 2015 Smooth Festival of Chocolate, we were invited to attend the Smooth Festival of Chocolate Blogger Cooking Class at the Australian Patisserie Academy. We had not clue what to expect other then it involved something like chocolate… 😀

Loving the selection of fine ingredients
Whilst Chef Angelo Roche from the Australian Patisserie Academy discusses ideas for our Tim Tam dish …we couldn’t wait to share our plates with you guys and here’s a hint…it involves TIM TAM BABY!!!
A great pastry education leads to great pastry!
We were a little obsessed with plating our dishes and felt a little tension coming from other bloggers such as *cough* Joe from 2 Hungry Guys *cough*. But this guy sure deserves two thumbs up for the creativity that I couldn’t possibly have. I ended up letting him win so I could eat more…that’s right. Teehee.
Made with love man…can’t you see?!
We had so much fun creating wicked sweet treats. I don’t remember the last time I’ve ever had so much fun creating and eating at the same time. There was so much chocolatey flavour in my dish and to balance it out I HAD to add some fresh fruits like strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and orange slices.
How amazing are these little babies?
OH and I couldn’t resist making my very own “Tim Tam Ferrari Car“. Totally everyone that night suffered from major envy that I made this baby. Cameron Daddo and Chef Angelo Roch was pretty impressed with my work. #nonotreally
Perfection on a plate

You don’t need a map to figure out that Chef Angelo Roch is super talented. This born Sri Lanka and raised in India chef committed to sharpening up his patisserie skills in France and America to complete his professional development pastry courses at Ecole Lenôtre France, Ecole Gastronomique Bellouet Conseil Paris and the Callebaut Academy Chicago.

A sneak peak of one of the dishes Chef Angelo Roch created. I couldn’t bring myself to eat this especially when it looked so special and delicate. It was everything I imagined, but BETTER.

We got to work with the most talented pastry chefs in Australia at Australian Patisserie Academy. And not just because these two chefs are brothers but they are both skilled, thoughtful and original chefs who are able to concentrate solely on patisseries.

If only I could add smell to these photos!!
Got another sweet surprise to take home that night at the Smooth Festival of Chocolate Blogger Cooking Class, I call it the “CHOCOLATE JEWELLERY BOX”. The harmony of sweet flavours starts with the white chocolate pieces. Teamed with the milk chocolates and dark chocolates, this box packs a punch when it comes to flavour and texture.

Another gift bag and I don’t think I can ever refuse chocolate.
It was SATURDAY 12th September and we started our Smooth FM journey at the Tim Tam Temptation Tent and guess who was in my camera screen looking all happy with candy…ADRIANO ZUMBO of course.
Happy Adriano Zumbo with science beakers filled with candy.
Working in progress to eat all the chocolates in the world!

Bumped into Adriano Zumbo AGAIN!!
Fast forward two hours and we were inside BAR100. The solid sandstone building at 100 George Street in the Rocks was built as a mariners’ church more than 100 years ago. Our jaws dropped when we noticed a long table filled with…you guessed it chocolate. While I tried my hardest to try everything…I kinda failed but that’s okay I knew 15+ packs of Tim Tam were waiting for me to eat them. HAHA.

And there was MORE MORE MOREEEEEEE!!!
I had a bit of this and that and this and that…
We arrived fashionably early that we managed to spot this elegant lady dressed in 1910’s style. She was hovering with her table filled with Tim Tams. It sounds crazy but she graciously moved around better than I can.
Tim Tam Lady
I was so tempted to take this GIGANTIC TIM TAM home.
Well that’s a wrap! It was freaken awesome to experience a taster of the amazing talent in this year’s Smooth Festival of Chocolate. There were truly some extraordinary chocolatier’s such as Adriano Zumbo and award winning Chocolatier Jodie Van De Velden. How can we forget Shangri-La Hotel Sydney’s Executive Pastry Chef Anna Polyviou punked up the kitchen at the Callebaut Test Kitchen. By the end of the day I realised I have a condition that makes me eat when I can’t sleep. It’s called insom-nom-nom-nom-nia.

If you heart beef, especially with a beef marble score of 9+ than Rengaya is the place to be. With the weather getting more cooler in Sydney I think this place is looking like a winner for best restaurant to eat this winter. There’s plenty of beef dishes to order at Rengaya and I have mentioned before they also do ALL YOU CAN EAT. Besides stuffing my face with unlimited supplies of wagyu I thought I’d switch my classy mode on and give the al carte menu a try. Dining with Yuri (SD Marketing Global) and Angelica (Angelica’s Blog) made me feel more like a lady and I had such pleasure to getting to know both of them more.
Meatasaurus Nessy Eater coming through!
So if you LOVE FREEBIES like me than sign up to Washoku Lovers and members score themselves a free drink at Rengaya or maybe a glass of 400ml Japanese draft beer (choice of Asahi Super Dry on tap or Suntory – The Premium Malt’s value up to $9.50) or if you can’t handle alcohol than a soft drink from the drinks menu. All you need to do is flash your membership card when you order. Show-off that card as if you’re wearing a twenty carat diamond ring on your finger. YES it’s free to join and you get to score some freebies at participating Japanese restaurants too. Note each restaurant offers freebies to members – Click here for more info.
Moving on and we have the kinako milk ($5.90) (prepared soybean) that’s a very healthy beverage in Asia and popular too. Served chilled, Angelica mentioned it had a grainy kind of texture which she quite enjoyed. From her facial expression I think that was my queue not to ask if I could try some.
Kinako Milk ($5.90)
For Yuri and I we opted for the Asahi Super Dry on tap 400ml ($9.80). There’s no shame in admitting that I couldn’t finish it all because I was too busy concentrating on the waygu. That’s right!
Asahi Super Dry on tap 400ml ($9.80)
We start slowly with the namuru ($8.90) that’s so much similar to Korean seasoned vegetables namul. It contains 5 kinds of vegetables including zucchini, shiitake mushroom, white radish, bean sprouts and spinach. My face lit up when this dish was well seasoned with salt, sesame oil and vinegar. I couldn’t refuse my chopsticks to continue to grab a few more slices or strands of those pickled goodness.
Are you ready to get some wagyu in your belly? If you are nodding your head in front of the computer screen then I have to introduce you to the wagyu “yukke” ($13.90)– Served with finely chopped shallots, drizzled in sesame oil, rubbed with garlic and sitting so still atop of the beef tartar was an egg yolk that had no sign it had escaped from the egg white.
Wagyu “Yukke” ($13.90)
My face was traumatised when Yuri did the unthinkable, pop the egg yolk. The quality and freshness of this dish is top notch. I always heart that creamy texture from the egg yolk and chewy feel of the shredded beef.
Baby yolk me one more time…
We were still waiting for the main star to arrive so in the meantime let’s help balance out our meat consumption with wrap-up lettuce leaves ($8.90). It includes a fair few washed large lettuce leaves that’s the size of my face, pieces of sliced carrot, green chilli, garlic and special sauce. I was informed by Yuri that Japanese people combined the leaves together with the meat so it feels healthier. I can confirm it does feel a bit healthier but I still love meat on its own.
Wrap-Up Lettuce Leaves ($8.90)
Drum rolls please and the moment we have been waiting for was the premium wagyu amusement ($49.90) that’s a chef’s recommendation of premium wagyu beef cuts of wagyu rib, wagyu loin, wagyu oyster, wagyu rib finger and wagyu ox tongue. Words cannot describe how many times my mouth orgasimed. My body was going through all sorts of feelings. Each piece of wagyu was heaven in my mouth. I felt like there was fireworks happening every few minutes in my body. No need to add oil in a pan because it knew how to oozes its fat out and provide that beefy fragant.
Premium Wagyu Amusement ($49.90)
Each wagyu piece knew how to please my mouth and body. Every bite felt satisfying with its incredible tenderness and juicy flavours. At the end of this adventurous wagyu party it looked like I had wagyu lip balm all over my lips because it was that oily.
Premium wagyu beef right there.
The stone pot mentaiko bibimbap with soup ($15.90) arrives sizzling with vegetables, egg, chili cod roe, squid and of course rice. It was no joke this rice was pipping hot and comes with a bowl of hot miso soup and a dollop of sweet and spicy miso paste just in case you think you’ve got what it takes to handle that extra kick.

Wagyu lettuce us be together…
The girls were eager to fulfill their dessert stomach’s cravings and so was I, so we order the shiratama cream anmitsu ($15.90) that includes kanten with shiratama and sweet red beans topped with one scoop of vanilla and green tea ice cream served with sweet black syrup and seasonal fruits. This beautiful platter had caught my eye and it was pretty darn epic to see black syrup being poured on top of the two large scoops of ice-cream.
Shiratama Cream Anmitsu ($15.90)
Bathe me with more black syrup!
We couldn’t pass the “WA 和 (Japanese)” Plate ($18.90) as it had so many components on the one plate. To warm our souls we had the shiratama zenzai, which is pretty much red bean soup. Next we shared thick slices of warabimochi with sweet black syrup, then green tea creme brulee served with tea. There was just too many choices on this plate and I personally love anything that contains green tea in it, so I totes raised my hand high for the brulee. Definitely the kind of dessert that you would want this winter.

“Cover me in syrup” said the Warabimochi
There’s no reason for me not to return to Rengaya other than its upmarket price, but with that being said it does offer top quality meat and dishes on its menu for what you pay for. The wagyu is thumbs up and desserts is a must. I’m definitely not saying good-bye to this restaurant, instead it’s see you later alligator.

It’s hard to believe I was at the beach recently happily diving my toes into the dry cold sand. I struggled to stay away from the sun and knew if I didn’t, I would miss my lunch date with these kids; Excuse Me Waiter, The Food Diary, The Kawaii Kitchen, Milkteaxx, Drool Worthy World, Mademoiselle Mange à Sydney and The Casual Food Blogger. Sun tanning on an empty stomach can be dangerous…so what makes it better? Two little things I would like to share with you, food and more food. Tehehe.
Decisions, decisions, decisions!
When I dropped by for lunch at Whitewater Manly on sunny bright weekend, thanks to Excuse Me Waiter’s invitation, we were lucky to have sat indoor but still managed to face the stunning view of Manly beach, which is right opposite the restaurant. Before we were seated, we had a quick look at the restaurant’s NEW FUNCTION room that caters at least 30 hungry guests as well as it comes with full air-conditioner if ever you’re a host at the party and it’s too hot to handle the guests, just flick a switch and ta-da…breeze.
Inside look at Whitewater’s NEW FUNCTION ROOM
I’m really not used to dining at a restaurant with a picture perfect beach view so I really enjoyed starting with the smallest of things like ordering beverages. I’m really not used to dining at a restaurant with a picture perfect beach view so I really enjoyed starting with the smallest of things like ordering beverages. Forget soft drinks and unwind on Kryptonite ($17) which features absinthe, green apple schnapps, midori, lime juice, pineapple juice and dash of sugar syrup. Seriously a green haven!
It wasn’t a lunch time garden party, but the sparkling pimms ($17) with hendrick’s gin, pimms, sliced cucumber and sparkling adds a fruity look and has a kick that will bring a smile to your face, even by just gazing at it.
Sparkling Pimms ($17)
So I heard that grapefruit juice ($5.50) is ranked among those highest in antioxidant activity and that is why I had to order it. Besides attempting to be heathy I was stuck between either driving to Manly beach or catching a bus. To avoid drink driving I headed straight to the mocktail section of the menu. I also like to point out if you ever plan to drive to Manly on a weekend, GOOD LUCK with finding a car spot. Its torture let me tell you and it cost $9/per hour, so just imagine how many Ben & Jerry’s scoop of ice-creams I could have had. BUT if you are obligated to show off your red Lamborghini at Manly, then I have good news for you. The carparks in Manly are 2 hours free (paid onwards) near Manly Library OR I was told you can ferry ride to Manly, which I totes forgot!
Grapefruit Juice ($5.50)
I think I’m one of a few that sees the words bone marrow on the menu and takes advantage of ordering it. The roasted bone marrow ($9.95) was very rich dish and some could only handle a few teaspoons, whereas I prefer mouthfuls. It’s another love of mine that rarely is offered in restaurants. I was impressed by the seasoning of garlic, parsley, mustard seeds, sprinkles of chili and 3 slices of warm buttered bread.
Roasted Bone Marrow ($9.95)
Next up fish tacos ($17.95)– A joyful jumble of a JUMBO beer battered fish fillet with a cabbage slaw. These two ingredients run and swirl together, amplifying each other’s flavours. As you can see the taco shell couldn’t handle carrying the fish!
Roasted Chinese Duck ($22.95) also known as Peking duck is an interesting take on. A savoury selection pocketed in homemade pancakes and if you wrap it up with shallots, cucumber and splash it with plum hoi sin sauce it be almost the best in town for Manly.
Roasted Chinese Duck ($22.95)Be shore of yourself. Come out of your shell.
During the time of every blogger digesting their heavenly delicious entrees, I had to race back to my car and find another available car spot. Luckily I didn’t miss the mains! Thanks guys and girls for not stuffing your face with my Whitewater seafood plate ($43.95). This is seriously the perfect celebration on a plate. Do you see freshly shucked Sydney rock oysters, king prawns, tuna tataki, marinated octopus, smoked salmon and prawn cocktail? The tuna tataki was seasoned to perfection with a proprietary blend of sweet and salty.
Whitewater Seafood Plate ($43.95)
Besides seafood there’s crumbed lamb loin ($27.95) that’s generously cloaked in olive and pistachio crust for extra crunch. Buried underneath truffle mash and a lamb jus. The crust kicked ass and the lamb was marinated so well. Not at all dry because of the river of jus.
Crumbed Lamb Loin($27.95)
The 4o Degree Ocean Trout ($26.95) was a food lover’s dream come true. It had a soft pink flesh with a delicate refined taste. Very silky and smooth as I cut through it with a knife. Hidden underneath the trout was watercress salad and a horseradish mayo that is versatile with any seafood.
4o Degree Ocean Trout ($26.95)
Feeling overwhelmed with the amount of food we had just devoured. We had to order a few more summer drinks to wash it all down. The Whitewater Juice ($5.50) was a favourite of mine that included a mix of pineapple, grapefruit and orange juice. Doesn’t it look so refreshing?
Whitewater Juice ($5.50)
As I had to face not drinking any alcoholic beverages including the coco-mango daiquiri ($17). I think I can say Mademoiselle Mange à Sydney really enjoyed this summer slushy drink as she managed to quickly finish it before our desserts arrived. This is totes a drink for active people! It features a blend of havana club white rum, malibu, mango liqueur, mango puree and lime juice.
Coco-mango Daiquiri ($17)
Fresh, vibrant, beautiful are the three words I use to describe how I feel after looking at this strawberry Juice ($5.50).

Please don’t claw me Mr. Crabbie.
OH MY GOD! Seating booths…it’s leather alright.MASSIVE open kitchen
Soon enough our vanilla creme brulee ($17) arrived looking very HUMUNGOUS! The photo below does not do it justice. It was basically the size of three to four iPhones put together. Served cold it was a real cool treat. That light egg custard with a GIGANTIC sable biscuit was a great combination. You can taste the eggy-ness with the caramelized and slightly burnt sugar on top. Mmmmmm I’m feeling hungry again…
Vanilla Creme brulee ($17)
Another dessert option included ice-cream ($13) which contains 3 reasonable scoops in a bowl. The flavours include vanilla-almond nougat, baileys and sherry-raisin.
I know that there are mixed feelings about the affogato plain ($8) but having two of my favourite things; coffee and ice-cream put together in one dessert cup is like winning a lottery ticket. The shot of coffee was intense and a powerful taste of bitterness took place. Then something rewarding comes with it…a scoop of vanilla ice-cream to add that creamy quick-melting flavour. It was superb!
Affogato Plain ($8)
How much fun does the lemon tart ($17) look? It contains sable Breton with lemon financiere and Italian meringue. It was magnificent with explosions of zesty flavours of lemon. Loved the layer of light golden-brown shortbread crust.
Lemon Tart ($17)
The proportions of the chocolate ganache ($17) was flawless mainly because it also contained the right amount of salted caramel sauce, chocolate and mango carrot sorbet. It looked so fine I really wanted it to be all mine.
Chocolate Ganache ($17)
To end this fantastic lunch feast at Whitewater’s the kitchen surprized us with a dessert platter, decorated with all sorts of their desserts on their menu. I seriously couldn’t handle another bite, but it’s desserts after all…
Dessert Platter (A mix of desserts)
Whitewater Restaurant opposite Manly beach is one popular restaurant on a weekend. The service is attentive and friendly. While their menu prices are on the dearer end, Whitewater does have its highlights of having first class view of the beach. The dining atmosphere is very laid back and it’s certainly a spot to hang-out after a swim in the ocean.
It’s so packed at Whitewater on a weekend!

It’s not every day you hear miracle stories such as the ability to overcome a life stopping and threatening disease called Scleroderma. It was the presence of her unexpected third child that gave her the strength and love to fight through this rare disease. Katze, the owner of Four Friends Cafe, who before opened an organic cafe in Artarmon for over five years decided to shift to something much more sweeter, handmade chocolates after surviving Scleroderma.
What is different about Four Friends Cafe and the rest of the chocolate shops? Well, from a traditional Buddhist story about four animals (elephant, bird, monkey and bird) that shares a common interest in working harmoniously together towards a happier life. Katze recommends not eating sweets every day, but making time to put a bit of sweetness in your life once or twice a week. Overtime Katze has learnt to be an enthusiast of natural ingredients and organic growing products such as Fair Trade Cacao. She personally enjoys local goods as she has learnt to support small businesses during her struggle with her illness.
Mighty Tall Macaron tower
Staying true to her values to organic ingredients, this self-taught chocolatier makes everything in her tiny kitchen using the finest ingredients, even though shelf life is short, however her determination is what makes Four Friends Cafe. It is upsetting Katze mentions how some people believe her products are not genuine Belgium chocolate and instantly assume her handcrafted chocolates are made from China because Katze is from a Chinese background, therefore less likely to purchase. It’s hard enough for a small business to keep running these days due to economy but to add discrimination and negativity, that’s SOOOO WRONG. It is disappointing there is humans out there who jump into conclusion without giving it a try first. Luckily, Katze managed to turn my frown upside-down by telling me about a 89 year old lady who caught 2 buses on a rainy day just to visit Four Friends after reading an article in the local paper.
Did someone say CHO-COLATE?
This year for Christmas, Four Friends Cafe has announced they will be donating chocolates to 4 shelter homes. Though Katze really REALLY wish that one day she can donate to every single homeless homes and I wish the best of luck in accomplishing this goal.
Organic Tea Leaves can be purchased in individual jars at Four Friends.

Berry Fairy Teapot suppose to be served hot, but the sun blasting its shine that day. So the lady suggested she can serve my teapot with ice. MY OH MY! There is an EXPLOSION of BERRIES in this teapot. This is a well -balanced drink that truly refreshes.

This delightful The Planet Tasting Plate ($28) including a pot of tea is completely OUT OF THIS WORLD, no doubt a generous tasting plate for one. Yes, for ONE PERSON. It offers 11 bite-size sweets including:
- Green Tea Pistachio cake
- Cherry Pistachio tart
- Popping Kitty chocolate
- Almond Truffles
- Coffee Puff
- Chocolate Mousse with Hazelnut
- Liquorice Macaron
- Dark Chocolate Macaron
- Almond Caramel with Coco Dust
- Gingerbread Chocolate
- Blackcurrant Macaron
The Planet Tasting Plate ($28) including a pot of tea
This plate is perfect addition to your sweet tooth list as it contains only the finest and freshest organic ingredients with a HUGE hint of sweetness. Katze tells me The Planet Tasting Plate represents a multicultural partnership and to positively get along with one another because we all in ONE UNIVERSE. Let’s start with Chocolate Mousse with Hazelnut – This mousse sure shows the meaning of the word nutty. You have to experience the unforgettable combination of chocolate and hazelnut. Its a sweet treat that can truly go along with a cup of coffee or tea.
When I first laid eyes on the Liquorice Macaron, I was very skeptical and I already pictured in my mind that this wasn’t going to disappointing for my tastebuds as I am not a huge fan of liquorice. Boy I would of been a sore loser if I hadn’t give this a go. Let me tell you this silver glittery coated liquorice macaron was the ONLY LIQUORICE I’ve EVER FINISHED. It’s odd to believe I’ve become a fan of a good liquoirice macaron. The liquoirice flavour isn’t overwhelming and contains plenty PLENTY of sweetness. I personally LOVE the presentation as it contains silver GLITTER.
For the classic, the Dark Chocolate Macaron is always a sensational flavour that can never go wrong. A smooth rich ganache filling which is made with the finest Belgium ingredients. Now moving on to something fruity is the Blackcurrant Macaron – Flavours of blackcurrant take center stage in this creation.
When I started diving my fork into the Green Tea Pistachio cake, Katze jokingly tells me how another blogger described this cake to be a smooth soft souffle and let me just point out, it is not soft. Because of the premium flour she uses, this cake’s texture crumbles. If you are a green tea enthusiast, like me, you’ll relish every spoonful with intense flavour of green tea bursting out. In between the impeccable taste of this cake, a crunch you will look forward too is the pistachio.
Green Tea Pistachio cake
Coffee Puff-A light puff pastry crust is filled with flavourful pipped swirls of coffee cream.
I wanted to savor every bite of my Almond Truffles – A nutty kind of treat that can make you go instantly NUTS on your first bite. FYI, every single almond piece is covered chocolate truffle.
ALMONDS gone wild! This Almond Caramel is HEAVILY dusted with Coco and is a perfect triumvirate of flavours.
Almond Caramel with Coco dust
When I first saw the Popping Kitty, this automatically reminded me of Maneki-neko aka lucky cat figurine, however this one is completely edible. Teehee. I highly recommend you to eat this last as it comes with a twisted surprise. I can really detect the chocolaty flavours as well as the fizzy fireworks that constantly pops every single second in my mouth. A winning treat of mine as it reminds me of back in the days…Wizz Fizz Sherbet Candy use to be a popular demand in the 90’s. Next an interesting take on Ginger Bread chocolate entails a taste you’ll have to try to believe with a unique flavour of gingerbread and chocolate experience. To celebrate Christmas, the chocolate on top stamped with printed Santa Clause.

Popping Kitty’s back
Wasn’t so much a fan of Cherry Pistachio tart as I believed it to be a tad sour however fresh cherry flaours accented by accents of cherry and a buttery shortbread biscuit base with sprinkles of pistachio on top.
Cherry Pistachio tart
I have yet to try the Head Barista Jimmy coffees, who earlier this year won 3rd place in Pura Dairy Famers Latte Art Championships. I am extremely keen on what kind of art will be presented to me.
Inspirational things I’ve taken away from chatting with Katze, the owner of Four Friends :
- Enjoy every moment of your life and be grateful about it
- Support small businesses, you’ll be surprised what they offer
- Slow down and take things one step at a time
- Appreciate what is in your food and go for organic
Have a sweet tooth after reading this? Why not drop by Four Friends to relax over a cup of tea and before I forget, CHOCOLATE.
