Flaneur – Unexpected discoveries on a wandering idle.

As is often the case, my best discoveries occur in the most unexpected places. The day began at Daylesford Organic with two of the freshest eggs ever poached, served with crispy, toasty “soldiers”. “Soldiers” being the narrow , sliced strips of fresh bread that are dipped into the eggs. It is a breakfast that I was unfamiliar with until my daughter’s dear friend Shirley introduced it to us after a sleepover a couple of years ago. It immediately became a favorite in our household so why not try it at gorgeous breakfast makers? It did not disappoint.

Daylesford Organic has the soothing color scheme and pulse of thoughtful calm that makes me want to move in. Some call it posh country. I call it divine. After wandering through the vegetable and bread section, scouring every cookbook on their shelves and examining the tabletop selection, it was time to continue my journey. This is where I undoubtedly and without fail get lost. In typical American style I asked the nearest passer-byer where Elizabeth Street was. “Oh yes, go straight up *&%^$, then turn left at gobblede gook, make a sharp turn just as you see the corner, then left then right then left , and your right there.” As I flaneured down gobblede gook here is what appeared on my left.


Upon closer inspection
and one door down

There’s real gold in flaneuring.
