In January I had a lovely few days in Sydney. We took in the Sydney Festival and the Lynley Dodd Retrospective at the State Library of NSW. We also ate a few things.
One day we made a special detour to Woollahra to go to the new Laduree store. It's the second Laduree outlet in Sydney, and a bit easier to get to than the Westfield store in the city.

|So pretty. And you're allowed to take photos!|
|We couldn't buy the treasure chest|
of 200 macarons this day
|We may have come away with some goodies though|
111 Queen St
Sadly you can't just eat macarons all the time, as much as you might want to. One day I took Master Wicker and a nephew for vegan yum cha at Bodhi Restaurant. I didn't manage to take many pictures, I think the boys were gobbling too quickly as soon as food hit the table.
|It was pretty good, better than I was expecting|
but I do prefer carnivore yum cha

This day was rather hot, and after baking at Sydney Festival we headed off to Gelato Messina in Surry Hills. Sydney has many excellent purveyors of gelato, this was my first visit to Gelato Messina. It won't be my last.

Another first for me was a visit to Bourke St Bakery in Alexandria for breakfast one day.
