A little light relief

My wife asked me the other day, 'Can we go to Brisbane on Monday', and me knowing this is always possible and afore mentioned wife never leads with a reason I did ask, 'Why'.
Her response was, 'to visit a cake shop'. Apparently there was a article on TV about Jocelyn's Provisions one of Brisbane's premium patisseries that she was impressed with.

Anyhow I said I'd look it up on the web, which I did and while I was there I found a link to Gourmet Traveller, and while I was there I found this story about British punk legend Johnny Rotten from the Sex Pistols being credited with increasing the sales of British butter brand Country Life by 85% in one quarter. See below for the ad.

Btw, looks like we're going to Brisbane on Monday, seems I was impressed to!

Excellent - just the lift I needed.

Hey, I'll be in Brisbane on Monday too. I'll wave when I see you. lol

PS. That asparagus and ricotta quiche looks good to me. Yum!

Aha! Visit Jocelyn's once and you're hooked. Hope you enjoy it.

Hi Stewart, oh this Jocelyn place looks so great, thank good it is not close to me...I could eat it all. Though I would like to have a piece of that Chocolate ganache tart after dinner tonight :-)

Enjoy Brisbane!

Perhaps a bug or two...yummie
