Melbourne Sweet Dreams Tour

morning talk with andrew. | taken with Sony NEX-7 – A dream of mine came true when my friends and I took Sweet Dreams tour of South Yarra for the first time.

Dedicated to anyone who loves food as much as I do. Through a very unique travel agency called Queenie’s Food Tours (who specialize in foods) we found a contestant on season 5 of MasterChef Australia 2013 named Andrew Prior, who has built a beautiful tour and knows Melbourne’s food produce intimately.

Never did I imagine that we would run our hands through the legendary Lolli Cake and watch it light up with french pasteries and a large range of bread, see doughnuts and dossants in the wild, swim over a massive macarons and chocolates.

See below for everything from our sweet dreams tour of South Yarra.
