On a recent Friday I had a delicious breakfast of corn and capsicum pancakes with chilli hollandaise at Chef’s Edge cafe on Wellington St in Collingwood, which is also a kitchenware shop and a knife sharpener that does breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as fantastic coffee. I’ll be back soon. As Ed at Tomatom recently observed, the Collingwood area has a vibrant food culture. I have to agree.
While I have lots of good things to say about social media, I also recognise its shortcomings. It’s anarchic, arbitrary and inconsistent. With no organising structure or principle the content it creates provides an incomplete view of the world (but that is equally true of highly organised commercial media).
When I eat at a brilliant place like Chef’s Edge and cannot find a single food blog review of it (it has been reviewed by the Age and Three Thousand), I recognise that this is an oversight that should be addressed immediately. Food bloggers: you’re missing out if you don’t try Chef’s Edge!
