The Woodford Reserve Mothers Day Polo Classic Media Launch

March 26th, 2014

It’s coming up to that time of the year where Sydney’s social set put the day aside to relax in style and watch the polo.

The Woodford Reserve Mother’s Day Polo Classic, to be held at the Kurri Burri Polo Club on Sunday May 11, launched its charity event on Monday evening at Keystone’s hot spot, Rushcutters.

Welcomed with a Woodford premium craft bourbon Sour cocktail then Stella Artois and Veuve Clicquot to follow, with a tasting of the fancy new wine spritz, Bondi Rd by Yellow Tail.

The Mother’s Day event has fast become a landmark society polo event in NSW. What started out as a small family day in the Kurri Burri fields six years ago, has been building into the thousands. The picturesque estate runs along the Hawkesbury River with the Blue Mountains as a back drop, a perfect escape for city dwellers.

Mahalia Barnes is confirmed as the headlining act and is set to perform some soulful numbers on smooth fm’s entertainment stage; Kris Smith will add star power to the Woodford Reserve marquee as their ambassador, and special guest Blanche d’Alpuget, a long standing patron of their chosen charity Inala, will be attending with The Honourable Bob Hawke.
Inala, supporting individuals living with disabilities and special needs, has raised $173K thus far thanks to the support of the event over the years.

Crispy Pork Hoc was matched with Woodford Reserve’s Kentucky Apple, and guests’ taste buds were treated to oysters with Merlot vinaigrette, sardines on toast, tomato and goats curd salad, and for the sweet tooth – Pear and cherry strudel to complete the evening.

Tickets are on sale now and a range of hamper options can be purchased at:

Kings Lane Sandwiches – The Kings of Sandwiches!

March 18th, 2010

Tucked away in a cute little Darlinghurst lane is Aaron and Agata’s sandwicharia called Kings Lane Sandwiches.

It’s included as part of the small food precinct below the Republic Apartments.

When you walk into Kings Lane Sandwiches, you are greeted by the young attractive owners, their big smiles and glistening white teeth (for some reason I noticed their really white teeth!). They are laughing, having fun with the other customers and enjoying what they do. You instantly feel warmed by them.

You’ll notice on the left hand side, around the huge mirror, there is graffiti all over the wall. It’s actually autographs and testimonials from their famous clientele who swear they have the best sandwiches in Sydney.

So it’s my turn to try a sandwich and see what Alex Demidriades, Fuzzy and Kate Fischer are on about. Reading through the graffiti on the wall, there are many comments about the Chicken Schnitzel Sandwich, so that made my decision very easy – “Chicken Schnitzel Sandwich please Aaron”.

I went to the cute and cosy courtyard at the back of the store and read the paper while I wait for my sandwich. I was super excited and super hungry!

Out came Aaron with the BIGGEST sandwich I have EVER seen in my life. At first I thought, ‘Is this a joke?’

No, it wasn’t a joke – these guys are for real. The gorgeous soft brown bread, hand cut to about 2″ per slice (no joke!) the abundance of crispy brown chicken schnitzel, the herb mayo and lettuce.

I attempt to wrap my mouth around this huge sandwich! First bite was heaven! The schnitzel reminded me of my Mum’s schnitzel, and the herb mayo is simply perfect. I completely demolished the sandwich like a pig, and was very full by the end. I loved it.

They make all their own ingredients on the premises daily.

Kings Lane Sandwiches also cater for functions, events, businesses etc. They have repeat clients such as Audi, Lotus, MTV, Government  Departments, Luxe Studios, the list goes on.

Other celebrity regulars include Jason Coleman, Jimmy and Mahalia Barnes.

I thoroughly recommend you visit Kings Lane Sandwiches, my experience was more then pleasant and can’t wait to get back there for another chicken schnitzel hit!

As Kate Fisher said “I will never suffer bulemia again!”
