…screamed The Canberra Times’ headline yesterday (Monday 18 March 2013), taking a well-earned break from putting the boot into the Centenary. ERMAGHERD!!! How could such a thing be justified?
Well, the fact Customs spent all this money to entertain guests – especially when they are located in the middle of nowhere in rural Victoria (yes, even further than Brindabella Park) – in a day where a couple of scoops from the 5kg Blend 43 tin probably no longer cuts it, is hardly a sensation… is it?
Kristen Lawson, editor of the Canberra Times’ Food and Wine section has nominated her top 20 Canberra Restaurants for 2012. It’s a good list, compiling scores over the year and tweaking them slightly in order to create a true representation of where the restaurants compared to each other. Some will cheer, some will moan, but few can doubt the Canberra dining has reached a high not seen since for almost a decade.
