Antiques Roadshow devotee? Don’t miss the thirteenth annual Antique Fair at UWA –
staged by Shenton Park Antiques owner Jenn Donelly – which sells antiques, jewellery
and interior decor across the May long weekend. “The jewellery comes from all over the
world, from New York, France and England,” says Jenn. “There’s some great vintage
and retro interiors too, which are really in right now.” Jewellery starts at $400, but she
says it can fetch up to a quarter of a million dollars – better start saving those pennies!
UWA, May 29-Jun 2.
Perth Food Truck Trial
Food truck aficionados, we have pretty much the best news ever. The City of Perth has created
a new initiative where ten of the state’s best food trucks will roam the city seven days a week!
When we saw one of the chosen mobile vans was Eat No Evil – we fell in love with its amazing
burritos at Southbound – we had to chat with co-owner and chef Ben Fossilo.
So what do you reckon is the best autumn meal on your menu? And what do you
recommend pairing it with, drink-wise?
Our best autumn meal is our wattleseed lamb taco with coffee mayo, pickled cauliflower, and
green apple salsa. It is a great seasonal dish with a sweet, slow-cooked organic lamb, slightly
bitter mayo, and fresh salsa on top. It would go well with an icy apple cider or amaretto sour.
Where does the inspiration for your dishes come from?
We call our cuisine ‘coastal’ – trying to use all local seasonal ingredients with a beachy theme,
taken from Mexico, South America, South East Asia and Korea. We try to use the most visually
and texturally vibrant ingredients we can, with fun combos to keep it fresh.
We love the aesthetic of Eat No Evil. It reminds us of island holidays in South America,
or a sleepy, surfy summer. How important is matching the look with the food?
I think the aesthetic of the stall and the vibe that we send across to our customers is the most
important part of the job. It first sets the scene for the food they are about to enjoy, and gets
people comfortable and ready to hopefully experience a flavour or dish they haven’t before.
Why a food van?
We have always been interested in the growth of the food-truck scene, and a well-equipped
vehicle will allow us to cook better-quality food and roam to locations that reflect our vibe, like
the beach. It means we are not confined to four walls, and can adapt to more situations and
appeal to a wider community. It also seemed like a big challenge that we just couldn’t resist.
Revealed Art Marketplace
As if you needed another reason to head to the Urban Orchard, right? Our favourite
summer hangout spot just got even more enticing with the Revealed Art Marketplace,
where you can buy original vibrant pieces direct from their Indigenous artists. Featuring
film, music and performances, it’s the perfect opportunity to soak up culture in an
informal setting – and possibly bag yourself a masterpiece from an emerging talent.
