For Harold

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 07:57:47 +0000

Dear Harold, You were born on the 21st of January, 2013. It was a pretty normal kind of day in most respects. We weren’t expecting you for another 3 weeks, and so the hospital appointment we had scheduled was tucked in around work meetings, lunch, and the regularity of everyday life. It was a beautiful … Continue reading For Harold

Stonebarn Truffles Pemberton

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 14:47:05 +0000

Oh the lure of the truffle! That delicate little nugget highly prized by gourmands and well to do pigs the world over for it’s musky and intoxicating aroma, and its ability to sex up any dish it’s added to. I’ve been very lucky over the years to have my winters punctuated with some very special … Continue reading Stonebarn Truffles Pemberton

Singapore Celebrity Concierge

Thu, 03 Apr 2014 12:28:40 +0000

What do you do when you plan your trip to a new city? If you’re anything like me you spend days scouring blogs, twitter, and various travel sites on the internet trying to put together a list of the “must do” (realistically “must eat”) places to visit. So what if instead of spending all that … Continue reading Singapore Celebrity Concierge

Gnocchi with the Papas

Wed, 08 Jan 2014 13:05:44 +0000

What is wrong me ? Seriously. I have been looking back at photos on my computer this evening and it’s criminal the amount of things I have taken photos of, loved, absorbed as part of my very being, and then promptly forgotten to write about. One such occasion was a couple of years ago in … Continue reading Gnocchi with the Papas

The Faces of Eat Drink Blog 2013

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 04:29:26 +0000

Recently I was involved in organising the 4th edition of the national food bloggers conference Eat Drink Blog. The event was from my point of view a massive success in bringing together food bloggers from all over the country and internationally to discuss the issues that make them tick. There was much considered discussion and … Continue reading The Faces of Eat Drink Blog 2013

Breaking the drought

Tue, 05 Nov 2013 03:56:47 +0000

Hey folks, It’s been a while… Any by a while I mean probably a year or so. Of course if you’re following me on twitter or Facebook you’ll realise that I haven’t exactly disappeared from the online world, but it seems every time I venture to this website I end up half writing something, deleting … Continue reading Breaking the drought

How to sum up a country in a single blog post ? It’d be fairly audacious of me to even attempt such a thing, especially after a single visit, but this is a blog, and if you can’t be self important and all knowing on a blog then where can you be ? So I … Continue reading Singapore

Mundaring Truffle Festival 2012

Mon, 13 Aug 2012 09:21:49 +0000

Another wonderful Truffle season is soon coming to an end. With every smile that accompanies the turn of the seasons from Winter to Spring, there is a corresponding sigh as there is nothing quite so satisfying as being fortified from a cold night outside by hearty food, robust wine, and intoxicating truffles… The Mundaring Truffle … Continue reading Mundaring Truffle Festival 2012

Pulpo a la Gallega

Tue, 03 Jul 2012 04:20:29 +0000

Octopus. The idea of it is so appealing when you see it on a menu… slow cooked, char grilled, tender and fleshy, new born into a sea of olive oil and garlic and Mediterranean fantasy. You could be sitting in a trattoria in Italy, a taverna in Greece, or a whatever they call a place … Continue reading Pulpo a la Gallega

Colombian Sancocho

Fri, 29 Jun 2012 04:21:10 +0000

I recently traveled to Colombia with my beautiful wife for the first time. It was a journey of discovery and adventure, great food, cheap rum, and quite a lot of time spent riding horses. In short, it was amazing. I’ve been married for almost 2 years now, and with Marcela’s patient teaching, my Spanish is … Continue reading Colombian Sancocho
