Tivoli Road Bakery, South Yarra

A couple of weekends ago, I went to E&T's house with Tim for lunch.  The night before, I had been to a Pink concert:
Pink was sensational.  My favourite parts of the concert were when she sang an acoustic version of Time After Time, and the finale when she sings So What dressed head to toe in sparkles and swings all over the ceiling.  Breathtaking!

To go to E & T's, I decided to take some dessert.  I was in the South Yarra area, so I ventured out to try the Tivoli Road Bakery (formerly Movida Bakery) that I had heard so much about.  As you can see from the top photo, the Tivoli Road Bakery is mostly about artisan bread.  However, they are also famed for their donuts, so that is what I bought.  Below you can see 2 x custard, quince and rhubarb donuts, 1 x dulce de leche donut, and one lemon curd donut:

They taste as fabulous as they look.  Here's a peek inside the dulce de leche donut:

Fabulous, eh?

E kindly cooked the three of us delicious lamb shanks:

This was extra special because E is a vegetarian and could not partake of this feast herself.
Tim and I capped off a marvellous day by going to Let It Be - The Songs of Lennon and McCartney at The Arts Centre (although I noticed they threw in a couple of uncredited George Harrison numbers).  Golden oldies Glenn Shorrock, Doug Parkinson and John Paul Young, together with the younger Jack Jones, entertained us on the night.
It was definitely a weekend to remember.

concert sounds like fun but those douhgnuts sound amazing - I must go there! And I admire E for being so selflessly vegetarian - I just can't cook meat and hate doing it too much

A rhubarb doughnut! Why oh why do I not have these? They look amazing!

Those doughnuts look delicious. What a nice friend E is to have cooked you a meat protein for your dinner, and what a thoughtful guest you were to bring dessert!
