La Maison Maille Boutique, Mount Eliza Website: http://www.maille.co.uk/home.dept The first La Maison Maille boutique in the Southern Hemisphere has just opened up shop in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, and, for all you mustard aficionados out there, it’s a must visit. The Australian store, which is now Maille’s sole mustard emporium outside of Europe, carries Maille’s exclusive mustard range, which can be purchased right off the supermarket shelves. The launch is a collaboration with Mount Eliza’s Ritchies IGA, a local supermarket with an emphasis on creating a “community” atmosphere, emulating that of the original Maille store in Paris in 1747. In celebration of the launch, we were invited to attend an intimate mustard masterclass with Chef Adrian Richardson (from the television series Good Chef, Bad Chef) and to sample the world’s most exclusive mustard; the Maille Chablis mustard with Black Truffle, containing wine sourced from Chablis, the renowned Burgundy wine region and black truffle from Périgord in France.
Counting House Location: 787 Esplanade Mornington, VIC 3931 Contact: 03 5975 2055 Had a phenomenal time at Counting House over the weekend thanks to M & E. The place is absolutely gorgeous; a quaint, cottage-like restaurant that is all bits rustic glamour and chic. It draws on natural elements – the lights are encased by branches, the long windows are lined with bright red flowers, and the glassware and ornaments bear the restaurant’s cute logo – a little black bird.

We love pizza, but let’s be honest – more often than not it’s of the Dominos variety, topped with diced mystery meat and drowning in grease. Amidst the plethora of fast food restaurants churning out pizzas under $10, it can be a little difficult to find good quality, authentic pizza. Now that’s where DOC Mornington comes in.
