And so it begins...

I've always been a little hesitant about the blog thing. Posting random comments into the world, wondering if anyone out there is reading/commenting/hissing etc etc. It always seemed a bit lonely to me. I'm happy to follow them sure, just never to write them. Until that is, some powers that be in the publishing world decided to invest in my foodie endeavours and publish my first cookbook.

My cookbook Kitchen Coquette will be launched in November (cue: the crowd goes wild!!!) and so we decided it was time I went online. But I'd like to set a few ground rules, an ethos if you will about this blog.

So...a few things.
  • I wont talk inanely about the ins and outs of my day
  • But I might talk inanely about the ins and outs of good foodie discoveries, chefs and things that might have some relevance to you if you love your food
  • I will post up recipes, as many as I can and as regularly as I can
  • I'll upload tips I find out at culinary school
  • I'll try to refrain from slogging out celebrities with cookbooks (although I won't promise)
  • I'm not a food photographer or food stylist but I like to play pretend. So if it looks off kilter or out of balance, be kind and remember its the recipe that counts
I look forward to meeting you.

..................Anyone there?
