Answers to Getting to Know You Questions

This Post was written by Nick from The Tracing Paper.

1. Where are you based?

Eye in Suffolk - a very small town of just 1,700 people. Crucially though, we do have two butchers, a greengrocer, a deli, two co-ops and no large supermarkets. Tragically, the fishmonger is closing for good this Saturday.

2. How long have you been blogging?
Not long. I started my blog on 21st March, just under two weeks ago.

3. What's the best thing about food blogging?
Having an excuse to pursue my interests in the origins of food - from photographing food in the hedgerow or field to investigating the meaning of food labelling.

4. What's the worst thing about food blogging?
Not feeling I've blogged as well as I might on a subject that matters to me.

5. What inspires you to cook and write?
The taste, smell, sight, sound and feel of food.

6. Where do you like to blog?
On my laptop at the dining table (but not during meals!).

7. What's your signature dish?
Not so much a signature dish, more a weekly fallback when inspiration or ingredients are short - risotto with seasonal veg (purple sprouting broccoli this week) and plenty of garlic, saffron and tabasco.

8. What about you might surprise other food bloggers to know?
I once almost poisoned myself mistaking hemlock root for pignuts.
