Right now my partner and I are on a 12-month backpacking trip around the world – doing what we love and enjoying being free from our normal routines in Sydney, Australia.
Join us on Instagram or subscribe to the blog to get updates on what we see, taste and can’t help sharing with you all. I’ll even be throwing in the occasional recipe from the countries we visit.
Heneedsfood showcases the ramblings of a hungry Sydney urbanite that loves his cheap eats, fine dining and anything else between.
I’m a first generation Australian born to Croatian parents that migrated from what was then Yugoslavia to Oz in the late 1960’s. The youngest of two other siblings that grew up in the 70’s on a multicultural suburban block in a home with humble food at its heart. I’ve called Dapto, Ipswich, Warwick, Toowoomba and Brisbane home and ever since taking a chefs job in Darlinghurst, Sydney in 1993, it has been my home ever since.
I may have thrown in my chefs apron well over a decade ago, but my food passion is as strong as ever. Heneedsfood is where I share my visits to markets, where I share recipes and also where I document my travels around Australia and the world.
