I’ve not been great at blogging this year, forgive me. I’ve been organising much for next year to peak your interest. I’ve even got a new home page. The year is ending, and I’ve been home to my native Northern Ireland a lot this year. It has changed, the food is world class.
As I travel around the world, most have never heard of Northern Ireland. A place I’m very proud to call my birthplace. However, once I hear that dulcet twang of “how are you?“, I know I’m home, and no matter where I roam, I do hear it. Northern Irish people have a special bond and thanks to Northern Irish Connections, I’ve made some rather good ones recently…
It is the high octane cooking contest that judges the contents of just a spoonful of food. The search is on for the first British winner of the high stakes cooking competition, where flavour is the only thing that matters.
I was never one for rules, I was never one for constant meticulism, but I do like processes. And I do most certainly like good results. Philip Dundas is the same. I envy him, I may have won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award for Best Series of Food Books in the world, but Philip was listed in the Telegraph top 10 books with his book Cooking Without Recipes, does that scare you? Probably at first look yes, but I bet you do it every night!
