This is the story of Weekend Food Escapes

Be kind, grateful and happy. Be the best version of you.
Weekend Food Escapes is a Sydney Food and Travel Blog and over time has become one of Sydney's top food blogs with over 1200 blog posts.

The weekend has approached and you have escaped the daily grind of work. The world is limitless. Through the senses of look, smell, taste; I escape through the culinary delights of Sydney eateries.  Australia is such a diverse country and I feel so lucky to be able to experience so many different cuisines.  I also really enjoy travelling and experiencing beautiful scenery - particularly waterviews.

Hello there, my name is Lisa and I started this blog in 2013. It's been a great 8 years sharing my food adventures with you. Weekend Food Escapes is a trio team of Lisa, Matt and Benji. Matt is the photographer. Benji is the Weekend Food Escapes baby who brings the love and cuteness to the team. I am the founder, writer, iphone photographer and I manage the social media accounts for Weekend Food Escapes.

I started this personal blog as I wanted to document some of my food and travel adventures. What is life without new experiences; whether it be visiting a new area or trying a new restaurant?

Since then, this blog has evolved as one of Sydney's top food and travel blogs. I've partnered up with businesses, public relations companies and other influencers to spread the word of my personal food adventures. Weekend Food Escapes was voted as a Top Blogger nationally by the Australian Good Food Guide. You can read about it here in 2018 and here for 2019. Covid hit in 2020!

You may have recently seen some of Weekend Food Escapes reviews and photos in the Daily Telegraph, on Trip Advisor, Google Reviews and Zomato. You will also see blog posts being periodically being featured on the Australian Good Food Guide and other publications such as SBS.

About Lisa - Founder, Editor and Writer
I was born and bred in Sydney.  I relish the opportunity to relax on the weekends. Where possible, I like sitting by beautiful scenery and eating delicious food. I have worked in human resources for about 15 years.

I love living in Sydney, Australia as it's incredibly beautiful and diverse in nature and food. My favourite cuisines are Japanese and Modern Australian. I think the key to happiness is balance. I love the city lifestyle, full of buzz and things to do. I also like alpacas and llamas so you might see some on my blog. They are such peaceful and soft creatures. This little alpaca is from the Hunter Valley (left). They make me happy. I hope they make you happy as well. And... no. I wouldn't eat an alpaca.

About Mr Weekend Food Escapes - Matt - Photo Man
Photo man Matt likes to eat and take photos but he doesn't like to be in photos. He's a man of mystery and few words. Most of my food blog photos are taken on the iphone however Matt brings the proper photography to the table. Matt loves Korean and Japanese BBQ and can't resist a meaty meal. Matt also loves eating unique dishes and is always up for trying new food.

Baby Weekend Food Escapes
Baby Benji loves yoghurt, prawns, braised beef and bread. He is slowly discovering the world around him and is incredibly cute.
