Answers to Getting to Know You Questions

OK I'm going to go with the flow and put my answers as a new post.

1. Where are you based?

2. How long have you been blogging?
Since September 2006

3. What's the best thing about food blogging?
It gives me an outlet for my passion for food, it enables me to be creative through writing, photography and design and I'm part of a fantastic community.

4. What's the worst thing about food blogging?
Writer's block!

5. What inspires you to cook and write?
I'm very influenced by the weather and that in turn influences my mood. I feel very inspired by the change in seasons and I love sitting out in my garden when the sun is shining.

6. Where do you like to blog?
Thanks to my laptop I find myself blogging mostly on the sofa or in bed! Again, I do like to be out in the garden but it's difficult to see the screen when the sun is shining brightly, so I tend to do my research there - reading cook books!

7. What's your signature dish?
Roast chicken with homemade gravy, roast potatoes and roast carrots. I almost always make stock or soup with the carcase.

8. What about you might surprise other food bloggers to know?
I'm not keen on very spicy food. Odd for a foodie, eh? :-)

I've got some time off now for Easter so I think I'll pack up an emergency kit of spices and head down to Kent to rescue you from your gastronomic sickness. I've got some great Scotch bonnets and loads of Sri Lankan cinnamon that can cure anything. Assuming, of course, your comment wasn't an April Fools' Day joke!

Julia said...

I'm afraid not Trig, I am in need of curing.

I like a bit of spice, but I don't think that it should take over the flavours of what you are eating. There is such a thing as toooo much! Mind you, I find that as I get older my tummy can't take as much. I get alot more indigestion than I did when I was younger!

Julia said...

Yes that's the problem I have Marie; a sensitive tummy. I'm trying to gradually get it used to more spiciness though. A few years ago I couldn't cope with chilli!

julia: the pain might not be worth it! if you don't need the heat, steer clear - your body will thank you for it.

I like "moderately spicy" food - a Madras, not a Vindaloo...
