About Berny

A giant sweet tooth at heart, my love for beautiful desserts and photography collided together to create I Only Eat Desserts in 2012. Starting out as a restaurant review site, it has now evolved into a space where I share recipes of the desserts I bake. In another life I used to be an engineer but my love of photography had led me to pursue a career as a freelance food photographer where I hold a Diploma of Photo Imaging. I regularly contribute to Broadsheet Adelaide and my photography had been featured in CityMag, TEO Magazine and Gram Magazine.

    Hey, I totally nominated you for the Liebster award, some people seem to go overboard on the awarding but you are my only choice (mainly because I don’t have time to read billions of blogs with not many followers). You have to answer some questions (like three) that I posted here http://thelittlecookbook.com/ . Happy blogging!

      Thanks heaps Rachel, sounds exciting :) What are the rules for it? Is it just answering the questions then passing it along again?

        Yeah pretty much! There seems to be different rules everywhere; I was rather confused.

    Hello, was wondering if you had the chance to visit us before you left Adelaide for your trip to Japan. If not, all the best for your trip. Hope you keep well and maybe catch up next year when you’re back in Adelaide in Feb 2013. Cheers

      Hi Jin, I’m sorry but I left Adelaide about 2 weeks ago and am already in Japan. Thank you for the well wishes, I hope to go to By Blackbird next year. The desserts look amazing :)

    Hi loved reading your posts. You know what you like when it comes to macarons, I think that you should try some from The Almond Tree, you will be pleased with their products, they are hard to obtain as they are always booked out but are at plent on markets

      Hi Sam, thanks for the recommendation. Will need to try to get my hands on these :) Which markets do they sell them at?

    Hi Bernie,
    Love your blog….especially the Japan guide! If you come back for a visit, we would love to show some unique restaurants to enjoy some weird and crazy food in Tokyo.

      Thanks for the kind words Job – I love all the weird food in Japan :)
