Meet Louis Tikaram: head chef at popular Sydney eatery, Longrain Restaurant. If you’ve eaten at Longrain, you won’t be surprised to discover that Louis draws his culinary inspiration from a childhood spent growing up surrounded by fresh produce on 100 Acres of farmland in Mullumbimby, NSW; his travels, particularly throughout Asia and his Fijian-Chinese heritage. It’s fair to say then, that when it comes to sharing favourite places, our ears pricked up when we heard Louis’!
Today we bring you an espresso shot of art and culture with Cam from Surry Hills Booksellers, Oscar & Friends! When he’s not digging through the store’s quirky book collection, Cam frequents plenty of snacking corners, galleries, and landmarks and does his mates a favour by adding them to Posse!
Cam loves his historical and cultural stops across the globe and gets his worldly art fix from the modern New Museum in New York City. Closer to home, he recently had the pleasure of visiting the Art Gallery of New South Wales for the Picasso and Francis Bacon exhibitions. When he would rather take a more hands-on approach as a craftsman, Cam heads to the Bower in Marrickville to breathe new life into the knicks and knacks to be found in what he calls his trash and treasure wonderland.

Bright Green Laces is Shereen’s addictive fashion blog, where she shares her eclectic wardrobe and beautiful styling tips. The blog name came from her first major fashion purchase: a pair of plain converse that she customised with bright green shoe laces to stand out from the crowd.
Shereen lives, eats and breathes fashion, so we were dying to see where all her clothing and accessory gems are sourced from. Living in Sydney’s Western Suburbs, Shereen tends to go on ‘purposeful’ shopping expeditions, regularly visiting her favourite stores. These are the special stores made her short list:
We recently met style guru and Gallery 2010 owner, Sam Preston.
For those who haven’t heard of Gallery 2010, it is a contemporary gallery in a leafy Surry Hills garage. Supporting emerging artists, Gallery 2010 is non –profit and curator-run.
Gallery 2010 is loved by many Posse fans and we had the pleasure of meeting Sam to find out which places she loves and recommends from around the world.
Here’s what she has to say…..
If you love to wine and dine cafe style, then the Revolver in Annandale will be your cup of tea.. Literally! In Sam’s opinion it is ‘the best café in Sydney, [which] ticks all the boxes’ – this is quite a claim! Revolver has some expectations to live up to!
A coffee lover, Sam insists Corduroy, in Surry Hills is the place to go for some caffeination! Corduroy use Little Marionette coffee which is deliciously smooth. Sam used to live near the Little Marionette Roastery in Annandale, but the Corduroy is now the closest purveyor.
