Melbourne has so much to offer. I love experiencing new places and events and sharing them with you.
I have an interest in gluten free, vegan and vegetarian diets so I will let you know if you these can be catered for in my reviews.

Fresh healthy woodfired pizza
Forging a new standard in Pizza in Ballarat is Forge Pizza. Opening in 2010, this little pizzeria won two Golden Plate Awards for the region in 2011 - which were most improved venue and highly commended best unlicensed cafe 2011.
It is not hard to see why. We enjoyed the whole experience; the staff, the charm, even the old school desks and doors which were used as tables. This place has been put together with passion.
It has a warm, industrial vibe. In the iron age, blacksmith's forge consisted of a raised brick hearth outfitted with bellows to feed its soft-coal fire and a hood to carry away the smoke. The woodfired pizza here is the forge, the focus and the theme. Friendly smiling staff wearing blacksmith uniforms, greeted us. Behind the corrugated iron counter we could watch dough being stretched, pizzas being topped and put into the wood fired oven set at 400 degrees.
