okay, so as a kid, I ate pretty “plain jane” food, meat and potatoes and the meat was cooked within an inch of it’s life. Most of this was done to accomodate my Dad’s (who I love dearly) taste. I hadn’t even eaten a mushroom until I was in my teens! Then I met the love of my life and he introduced me to, firstly, a honeydew melon (gasp!) and then, brace yourselves, bagels and cream cheese! This gives you a little bit of an idea how ridiculous my food education was until the age of about 15. Now I try to sample at least one or two new things every year, you won’t find any recipes on this site that include brains or tripe or sweet breads but I will try and keep you salivating with delicious old and new dishes, so I hope you will follow along and enjoy the meal!
