Morag Grealy in front of the Eiffel Tower and Morag Kobez in a super close-up!

Frankly, I didn't think that I would ever meet two of them, but Brisbane food writer Morag Kobez of Extra Virgin, and Morag Grealy, my sis and editor of London fashion blog The Daily Morag, prove that two sets of parents got 'inventive' in the name stakes in the eighties. These two are kicking off a new series of Food*Style interviews this month looking at the top tips from two linked people. Muchos muchos gracias gals!

Top breakfast?
I live next door to Chouquette Patisserie Boulangerie, so the aroma of beautiful, authentic, buttery French pastries wafts in to my house every day, and that's very hard to resist.

Top lunch?
You can't beat a picnic lunch by the river in New Farm Park.

Top dinner?
The Servery upstairs from Pearl at Woollongabba. Sitting around the kitchen bench as they carve up a suckling pig and chat about the wine that's being poured - it's the kind of hospitality that's all too rare, and it's also a little bit hidden away which is fun.

Last drinks?
Walrus Club. I love the shadowy atmosphere and the rum-based cocktails.

Last supper?
That's too hard! I've often thought about it, but can never pin it down to just one dish. Perhaps the nine-course degustation at Urbane?

Top breakfast?
Granger & Co for none other than Bill's scrambled eggs - a classic, but muy bien!

Top lunch?
The Veggie Table market stall for a Haloumi Burger on a salad (with all three salads and all three sauces!)

Top dinner?
Bistrotheque for their salmon, but on my hit list is Ottolenghi. I'm probably one of few in London not to try it out yet.

Last drinks?
I always have fun at Shutterbug, but I can't wait to check out Casa Negra and Ace Hotel when they open shortly. My fave cocktail is a margarita - I love tequila!

Last supper?
I can't go past a good Milo or a bowl of cereal! (Are we really sisters?!)
