About me

This Post was written by Gemma from Dressing for Dinner

1. Where are you based?
Edinburgh, Scotland although originally born and raised in Sussex.

2. How long have you been blogging?
Only since January 13th, 2007. I had been procrastinating about starting a blog for a very long time and one Saturday decided it was time to get started.

3. What's the best thing about food blogging?
Having the incentive to try new things, the food blogging community, and the lovely comments people feel inspired to leave.

4. What's the worst thing about food blogging?
The guilt when I don't feel like cooking or writing for a while. Also, being continually frustrated by my lack of photographic skills, and the potential to spend hazardous amounts of money on a new camera, ingredients, kitchen gadgets...

5. What inspires you to cook and write?
I have always enjoyed cooking and enjoy feeding appreciative people. Writing just gives me a way to focus this interest.

6. Where do you like to blog?
At home but I often find myself blogging in the office when I should be working!

7. What's your signature dish?
I'm not sure that it is a signature dish but possibly roast chicken with lemon and thyme as it is simple but always delicious.

8. What about you might surprise other food bloggers to know?
I can be surprisingly fussy. I don't like raw tomatoes (although I am trying), strawberries, raspberries, lumpy yogurt (it's a texture thing), blue cheese, offal, and too many more things to go into in detail here.

Be careful with number 6 - that's how I lost my job :(

Great to get to know you though!
