As a way of trying to connect with our great throng of lovely and loyal readers and followers, I’d like to attempt something a bit different with our food blog. I don’t read many so can’t verify this, but so far I havn’t come across any blogs whereby readers challenge or request bloggers to make something of their own choice. Be it something they remember from childhood or from a favourite restaurant. It could be some dish that they miss having started a new diet that omits certain foods.
I don’t think we’ll be in any danger of being inundated by too many requests as, quite honestly our readership hasn’t grown that much yet so we could hopefully be in a position to do more recipes, proportionally.
The plan is for you lot to ask us to come up with something – as long as it’s practical – and we’ll try and create a tasty and interesting dish/recipe, which will then get posted and photographed as a blog. We don’t mind being challenged with special diet stuff or unusual ingredients. Give us a description of your granny’s unforgettable sour cherry, foie gras and walnut curry-salad and we will do our darndest to give it a try. I’m not encouraging waste of expensive ingredients so we won’t be doing that one.
We’ll continue to create our own recipes too, and hopefully the two things will compliment each other well.
What do you think? (Matthew)
