Let’s Talk About Food…Good Food

Dello Mano Cake

Dello Mano Premium Hand Made Cakes

We all love to eat, that’s a fact. These days, we don’t just eat to survive—we enjoy the food, many of us have developed discriminating taste buds for distinct flavors and we seem to be more aware about the issues surrounding food. The terms real food, good food, natural, organic and so many more get thrown around too much that it can get pretty confusing.

At Dello Mano, we take pride in serving you good food. And when we say GOOD.. this is what we mean:

1. Good food presents the comfort of home.

Nothing can replace BBQs and tea time with family and friends but recent statistical data shows that Australians have grown to be big spenders eating out. It seems that the changing lifestyles of individuals and family brings about a demand for convenience so home-cooking isn’t a top priority for everyone.

But we daresay that eating out does not have to mean eating ourselves sick with processed food all the time. We believe that eating out can still present conviviality and that homemade goodness…which is why we take our time making handmade food at Dello Mano. We simply believe that food made with love will always be better—in quality, in taste and in the overall experience.

5 Kitchen Mishaps That Changed Food History

Kitchen accidents happen now and again. But the results aren’t always burnt food or inedible concoctions. Take a look at the humble beginnings of 5 food items now enjoyed worldwide:

1. Chocolate Chip Cookies

The delicious cookie recipe came about in 1930, when Ruth Wakefield, ownder of Toll House Inn substituted baking chocolate with smashed pieces of semi-sweet chocolate bar for the cookies she was baking. The result was a scrumptious batch of cookies with chunks of chocolate that soon became a hit in the Whitman, Massachusetts area.

2. Popsicle

Did you know that this frozen treat has been around since 1905? As the story goes, Frank Epperson was making a soda water mixture. He accidentally left the mixture on the back porch overnight, with the stirring stick still in the container. Epperson was amazed to find the frozen soda water on a stick that he shared his creation with his friends. These days, popsicles come in so many formulations. But perhaps the best thing about it is that we all can make them at home!

Suffice it to say, I find red doors quite fascinating, inviting and majestic—for some reason. What is it about red doors that make it so luxurious? I did a little digging and here’s what I’ve found…

In Chinese tradition, red is the color of luck and happiness.

In Feng Shui and in early American tradition, a red front door means “welcome”.
