One of our fondest memories from our Melbourne experience was the myriad of healthy cafes one could go to for a treat sans guilt. During the 8 months we spent living in the world’s most liveable city our culinary imagination was inspired in so many ways. In fact, today’s recipe has its roots in Australia and we are excited to share our first successful shot at it with you.
