You may not know this, but Canberra is a place of fairytales.
Don’t believe me? Fine. I’ll show you.
Once upon a time…
… there was (and is) a city where lamingtons take the form of macarons,
and young ladies know precisely how to behave to attract a handsome Prince.
In this city, when young heroes and heroines manage to vanquish their inner (and outer) demons, they are rewarded with sugar-dusted apricot and almond friands and,
if they are really lucky,
a visit from a woodland bird who sings a merry tune.
In this magical city, the Wicked Witch of the East in her striped stockings lurks in the background!
The only way to defeat her…
… is to go and see the Lizard.
The Wonderful Lizard of Oz.
Because he’ll tell you that no matter how despondent and downtrodden you might feel when faced with the witches and dragons in your life…
There’s always a reason to smile.
And it usually involves food.
