Anyone enraged by Nigella will agree with this post from Silvana de Soissons. She says everything I am thinking with far more eloquence than I ever could.
As I said in last month’s round up, MiMi held a Burmese pop up at Matt Follas’s the Wild Garlic, which sadly I could not attend. She posted a video blog of the evening, which is great viewing and a good reason to persuade her to hold another one in London at some time in the near future.
A tweet by @sophiemostly lead me to this article on being a practical vegetarian. It is an interesting idea, which appeals to the way in which I eat. Although the numbers of vegetarians and vegans in the UK remain relatively static, increasingly more people are identifying themselves as meat reducers, be it for reasons of health, environment or ethics.
Also from Sophie was a great article on how to look after your mind. Maintaining your mental health is very important, but something that I suspect that far too many people neglect. A blog post from Sophie is always a treat and she is one of my favourite bloggers, my only complaint is that I wish she would write more!
I am hugely enjoying reading Amber at Almost Vegan’s accounts of her time training to be a raw chef. I hugely enjoy raw food, and always feel hugely energised after eating lots of it. It is never going to be a full time diet for me, but some of Amber’s creations are mouth watering and well worth a look.
Smoked mackerel with butter beans and kale is exactly my kind of lunch or supper dish which I shall be trying soon, thanks to Kerri at Dinner Diary. I love smoked fish and beans and am looking forward to creating my own take on this.
A few London food bloggers took place in a pumpkin carving competition for Waitrose. Kavey, Mimi, Danny and I all took part. Mimi was the very well deserved winner with her brilliant and terrifying pumpkin Gregg!
