FOOD, Food reviews, Uncategorized ORGANIC EXPO, AROMA COFFEE FESTIVAL 23 July 2006

Well, I suppose I predicted the weather wrongly yesterday. Because it was blimmin’ beautiful today! All blue skies and white billowy clouds and not too cold πŸ™‚ So a visit to both festivals was a must…

First up was The Organic Expo. There were more stalls than I’d expected – never knew that there was so much organic… stuff.. in Australia! Had a blast poking around and sampling all the food. It doesn’t really taste much better/worse than ‘regular’ food, except for the fruit/veg. Fresh organic fruit/veg is just spectacular.. I honestly think it’s worth the extra $$!


The Organic Expo

There was even organic skincare and makeup

Heh, thought this sign was funny.
Australians call chickens “chooks”, by the way.

Delicious organic dips

This rice and chicken was fabulous!! Organic chicken is so much
more tender than normal chicken…

Bowls of popcorn and nuts

Really liked this hot food stall – pastas, curries, etc

Had a shot of organic Wheatgrass juice – apparently really good for you.
Just realised the photo says its $2 for a shot.. but he gave it to me free! Yay!

Ice cream made without cream.. tasted good though!

This just made me go *wow*. Organic fruit & veg is the best

Some goodies that I got – chickpeas, extra virgin olive oil, popcorn,
carrot, apples, miso soup, Dr Hauschka samples


After that, decided it was time for a bit of coffee and shopping.. so headed off to the Aroma Coffee Festival. Was surprised that it was actually a really big event.. tons of people milling around and cups of coffee as far as the eye could see πŸ˜‰ When I read online that each cup is $1, I figured they were little shots of coffee. Not so! They were decent sized, and so $1 was unbelievably cheap. I bought 2 lattes but can’t remember what stalls I got them at – they tasted about the same anyhow πŸ˜› Too bad they didn’t have flavours, I like my coffee with vanilla or hazelnut syrup! Still delicious though.. and just fantastic to sip a steaming hot coffee in the brilliant sunshine.

Mmmm…. coffee….

They had a Turkish tea house there too, complete with (sexy) dancers!

People galore

The famous Rocks Markets

Walked back across the bridge – the view was perfect πŸ™‚

As requested! A pic of the Alannah Hill cherry necklace worn

    The organic fruit all look very colourful and healthy~!

    Organic ones must taste way better though. πŸ˜›

    I was at the Organic Expo today too! We must’ve missed each other coz we got there around 1pm. When we left around 4 o’clock they were giving away all of the fruits and veges, we picked up 3 full bags of goodies! The bananas were the best, especially seeing that they’re like $17/kg!

    I also purchased the ready made soups and meals. Did you try the organic mushroom rissoto? I taste tested it and decided to have that for dinner tonight.

      Erm, I realised you actually HAVE TO PAY to get in…. I just waltzed past all the people collecting tickets and no one stopped me! I didn’t even know we had to pay, until I just saw it on the website…. eep. Oopsie……..

    I went to the organic expo too – it was awesome! We went to the good food expo 2-3 weeks ago and it was twice as expensive to get in and about 3 times as big but the food at this one was so much better. I also had some of that wheatgrass juice – it smells and tastes just like grass! But I think they put sugar in it cos it was sweet.

    Gosh I didn’t take half as many photos as you but I took some from upstairs which is a good aerial shot. And we heard Kylie Kwong and Carla Oates speak.

    I can’t wait to check out that organic store new you.. there’s not too many of them in Sydney πŸ™

    I went to the organic expo too – it was awesome! We went to the good food expo 2-3 weeks ago and it was twice as expensive to get in and about 3 times as big but the food at this one was so much better. I also had some of that wheatgrass juice – it smells and tastes just like grass! But I think they put sugar in it cos it was sweet.

    Gosh I didn’t take half as many photos as you but I took some from upstairs which is a good aerial shot. And we heard Kylie Kwong and Carla Oates speak.

    I can’t wait to check out that organic store new you.. there’s not too many of them in Sydney πŸ™

    hi Bev! I have a pretty random question, but I don’t know who else knows as much as you do about ebay πŸ™‚ What can I really do about a non-paying bidder? Can ebay harass them a little (haha), or can I be refunded for the listing cost, etc?

      In My eBay, on the left nav, there’s “Dispute Console”.. you can use that to open a dispute on a non-paying bidder, and you get a refund for all your fees πŸ™‚

      You can also go to ADVANCE SEARCH on the top-right and click on Contact Information and give the buyer a call!

        ooo thanks, I see it now! πŸ™‚

        I definitely want to call them! I just think it’s so disrespectful. Have you ever called a non-paying bidder/did it work out?
