Cityscape’s Kayte Johnston tries her hand at dumpling mastery with a day at Pot Sticker Dumpling Bar. I’m very good at eating dumplings; I generously immerse them in chilli oil and savour their delicious favours with each bite. So when I’m offered the opportunity to join the team at Pot Sticker Dumpling Bar at The Colombo, I’m thinkin’ ‘hello mothership’. The day starts early (and suitably caffeinated), hitting the Chinese markets and liaising with Peter Timbs Meats for free-range meat and Peter Rabbit’s Patch for fresh vegetables for the fillings (about 13 kilos of coriander and 10 kilos of garlic chives are used each week!), then it’s time to pull on the crisp white PSD top and cap and rock this gig. Dumplings, I’m told, can be filled with just about anything. However, they have to be made with love. Tracy and Angela kindly show me the ropes: each dumpling case is...

Macaron lovers, rejoice! This Saturday (March 22) sees the return of the annual Macaron Day at J’aime les macarons and the $1 macaroon (instead of the normal price of $2.70). As you can imagine, this level of deliciousness in this price bracket attracts some considerable interest, and last year even with 7000 macarons on offer people were still turned away empty handed (and no doubt with grumbling tums). To ease the pain and celebrate their 4th year, the team at J’aime les macarons have bumped up the target to 10,000 macarons, so grab your friends, family or passing strangers and get down to the nearest J’aime les macarons outlet to get your allocated dozen-per-person (bring the kids though, and you can get a dozen for each of them as well!) Macarons fly out the door on a first come, first served basis, so be prepared to get in early! Both the...
