Situated just a 45-minute drive from Perth city centre, Mundaring is a picturesque place for a full or half day trip. One-third of the shire is state forest, making the drive as well as the visit itself a pleasant one to say the least. Start the day by popping into an art gallery, then stock up your pantry, stop for a tranquil lunch under the trees, swim in a lake, head out for a hike, and reward yourself with pizza before catching a flick outdoors. Here are our tried and tested faves from the area.
Theo Kalogeracos is a generous man. He recently invited us to join him at his Leederville Little Caesars Pizzeria store to share some pizza with him and chat about his new book Theo & Co. Take 2. Not only that, he also stayed well over the prearranged time to keep talking about his life’s adventures, and where he goes for pizza in Perth (turns out only in his own stores due to his local celebrity status, though he loves to try pizza on his travels). Kiri from UWA Publishing joined us – she features in a few snaps in Theo’s new book, and his wife Liz who absolutely radiates out from the pages of the cookbook in the fun party snaps. And that’s what Theo is all about really – fun, family and friends, laughter, enjoying life and sharing food. Read on to find out more about Theo, see some beautiful photos from his new book, and for your chance to win yourself a copy (BIG thanks to UWA Publishing!)
