Today I launch my new venture Edible News and am so excited to share it with the world. I thought I would write a bit about why I started the blog and hope you enjoy all the posts and recipes I have already uploaded.
I don’t have any formal training as a chef, but I have done the odd cookery course to understand ingredients and technique. I totally and utterly love food. I love eating it, I love discovering new recipes, I love hearing people talking about some new restaurant they went to and watching their face light up when they talk about what they ate, how it was cooked and if they would go back to it.
Many love stories start over a simple meal because food breaks down social barriers, whether it be a bowl of noodles on the floor of a longhouse in Borneo, a chicken skewer on a noisy street in Bangkok or a Tapas in some backstreet bar in Barcelona. It brings people together and makes them at ease with each other, because it transcends race, politics and religion.
Most news stories you read are full of doom and negativity. In my old life I used the news as a tool at work and after 20 years of that it became quite depressing, because it all just became a blur of negativity. Very little good news is reported when in fact there is good news all around us, you just got to look for it.
I hope that by combining my love of all things edible and good, happy news from all over the world you will come away from my stories a bit happier to carry you to a better place in your day.
