Mecca Munchies

Lunch today was courtesy of Mecca Cosmetics who invited me to the newly-refurbished Centennial Parklands Restaurant in Sydney to take part in a panel discussion about the future of the natural beauty industry. And before you ask ‘what do you know about the natural beauty industry’ I’ll tell you. Not much. But I do know that I applied 26 lotions and potions from shampoo and toothpaste to moisturiser and lipstick before I left home this morning and that can’t be a good thing. We need to consume not just green but less.
Zucchini frittata with tomato relish
Boccocini cheese with fresh tomato and chives
spicy chicken on eggplant puree and yoghurt
Pimms and lemonade
champers daahlink of course!
salad of ruby grapefruit, blood orange and grilled salmon
sourdough bread with olive oil and balsamico
green leaf salad
chocolate brownies with candied orange slices
mini strawberry and cream pavlovas
Sadly I did not get to try these, doh!

    Loving the combo of brownie and candied orange, and I am not really a sweet tooth. Not much into cosmetics myself, but the idea of more Earth-conscious shampoos etc is a good one, and worthy of a delicious lunch and informative chat!

    Hi Amanda,It would be a delight to have you as a partner in crime one day! IndiraHi Food.baby,It was an interesting discussion. Other panellists were Jane Caro of Gruen Transfer fame, Steve Bennett the founder of the Country Road clothing range and Jason Kimberley, environment educator.Hi suziwong66,it was a very fiesty discussion if somewhat hypocritic on my behalf. There I was wearing my 26 creams telling everyone to consume less!I am seeking help at C.A (Cosmaholics Anonymous) Indira.Hi Coby,Yes ironic that while we gorged on these delights we talked about not consuming! Indira
