Some love from The Age Good Food Guide
“Lezzet is a buzzing modern Turkish restaurant that maintains a sense of intimacy even though it’s big and on a busy road. Windows open on to a sprawl of outside tables but inside it’s warm with patterned wood and burgundy tones, the tables accented with fragrant sprigs of rosemary in miniature Campari bottles. The food is homely and unpretentious; Lezzet does a lovely pizza, so start with a taste by ordering olive studded, wood fired Turkish bread,then and drizzled inolive oil and oregano, before snacking on mushrooms stuffed with goat’s cheese and crowned with pesto. There’s slow roasted lamb, or calamari, grilled and tumbled with herbs and wedges of preserved lemon. Vegetarians will love the guvech, chunks of roasted eggplant, corn and capsicum under a think topping of bechmel. A Turkish delight-laden sundae, festooned with Persian fairy floss and crushed pistachios is decadent genius. Noise and bustle come with the territory; order takeaway if you want a quieter night.”
Spring is here and the outdoor lifestyle returns. Here’s a great, simple and delicious recipe that always seems to be the taste of Spring for me – Capsicum dip.
Dice 2-3 capsicum a Spanish onion and chilli to taste, if you like it hot, and sautee with garlic until golden.
Cool in the fridge, add yoghurt, olive oil and finely chopped coriander and whisk. You’ll have delicious accompaniment to any picnic or al fresco lunch. Enjoy!

The two big showdowns of the year, the election and the footy, continue to confuse and confound. Clive Palmer has now accused Rupert Murdoch’s wife of being a Chinese spy and a St Kilda player set light to a dwarf entertainer. Who ever you’re barraking for in either of these competitions you’ll have to agree – both politics and the footy have been full of disappointment lately. We can only recommend a cold Effes and a Sofra to get you through 😉 Book now for election night whether you’re celebrating or commiserating.
I hope the first week of Spring is bringing good things to you and your family. Hope to see you soon at Lezzet.
