Pocket Bar: Wine, Cheese, Olives and Crepes, Darlinghurst (18 August 2009)

13 Burton Street, Darlinghurst NSW 2010

I love their olives!

It's been 2 months since my initial visit to Pocket Bar around the time it first opened and it's still one of the most interesting small bars in Sydney I've been to. Tonight I get to try some of the food along with a nice bottle of Mother's Milk Shiraz with friends. There's always something new to find in this bar which you might not have noticed the first time. Whether it's the random objects in the bar area, little army soldiers around the ceiling supports or how they use a playing card for your food order — this place is simply so visually cool in my books. The large olives on the cheese plate are so yummy which comes with 3 decent sized pieces of cheese — we had to ask for extra crackers to help finish it off. We cut up and share our freshly cooked crepes which are tasty and filling for our late night dinner.

I love places like this: casual, homey, with great small plates for nibbling and enjoying a bottle of wine with one or more friends. Your pictures are wonderful. They really give me a sense of this lovely place. That savory omelette looks amazing. Thanks for sharing! ...Susan

A good story

GK Chesterton: “The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”

Voila: www.tastingtoeternity.com. This book is a poetic view of 30 of the best loved French cheeses with an additional two odes to cheese. Recipes, wine pairing, three short stories and an educational section complete the book.

From a hectic life on Wall Street to the peace and glories of the French countryside lead me to be the co-founder of www.fromages.com. Ten years later with the words of Pierre Androuet hammering on my brain:

“Cheese is the soul of the soil. It is the purest and most romantic link between humans and the earth.”

I took pen and paper; many reams later with the midnight oil burning Tasting to Eternity was born and self published.

I believe cheese and wine lovers should be told about this publication.
