The Boathouse at Palm Beach


I love visiting Palm Beach on Sydney’s northern beaches. I lived there for a few years and still have a great affinity for the area.

A sub tropical environment, the gardens and environs are lush, sometimes over grown and immensely colourful.

Below are some photos I took of The Boathouse at Palm Beach, some of which I am currently featuring in rotation as the header on this blog.

The Boathouse is a cafe located on a jetty on Pittwater at Palm Beach, a simply stunning location! Open for breakfast, brunch and lunch, the food is simple, flavourful and features fresh and innovative cooking.

The Boathouse is decorated with masses of fresh produce  – fruit, flowers and vegetables. Frangipanis and mangoes, strelitizias and passionfruit, create a lush and enticing environment.

How could one not like eating food in such a corner of Paradise?

Raspberry and Macadamia Pavlova Revisited

IMG_8972 2I described recently in this blog a wonderful meringue concoction created by my friend the Architect. I hadn’t yet had the pleasure of tasting this amazing dessert…

Today, on a beautiful Sydney day in beautiful Palm Beach, I was treated to this dessert. Maggie Beer, from whom the recipe emanates, calls it a meringue; I would describe it as a vacherin (layered meringue), but to all intents and purposes it’s a wonderful Australian pavlova – all three payers!

Meringue + raspberries + creme fraiche and whipped cream + macadamias = Nirvana!

Here is the link to the recipe and thank you to the Birthday Boy for providing the impetus for such a sensational end to the lunch!
