The Grounds of Alexandria is a coffee roastery, café and garden in a suburb named Alexandria. Every weekend there is a market with weekly alternating stallholders with new local producers that sell food, beverages, skin care, gifts and homewares. Today I visited the market with my friends and we spend the day there. The location is lovely and the atmosphere was super nice.
I started my weekend by ticking off a point of my bucket list, Luce and me already wanted to do since a long time, trying the famous Australian Vegemite. I have to say that I already expected I wouldn‘t like it and I proofed myself right. Our hostmom advised us to eat it with a toast with butter and only a little bit of Vegemite since it has a very strong flavour. At first it only tastes salty and than it has in my opinion a pretty bad aftertaste. Well now I made the experience…
Later on I went to the Paddington Markets with some girls and in the evening we visited the rugby game of the “Sharks” which is the team of Cronulla! They played against the “Roosters” and unfortunately the “Sharks” lost the game in the last ten seconds with a score of 14:16 but we still had a very nice evening and I filmed the day a little bit.
Yesterday marine studies was on my timetable and since my teacher enjoys fishing in his free time we were very lucky because he brought some fish he caught as well as potatoes to cook fish and chips 🙂 !
To prepare the dish we used a deepfryer. We cut the fish into fillets and mixed flour and beer into a beer batter. Once the potatoes slices and the fish fillets were fried we ate them with so called seafood sauce… they were delicious! 🙂
