In a small break from the Pea Challenge, just a bit of news/self congratulating on my part for interested parties.
In 2008 I will begin an exciting new venture in my life in which I will become a writer for a new food magazine on the block called Tastes Of Britain. Tastes Of Britain was released this weekend, so issue 1 is fresh in the shops. In a welcome relief from the norm, TOB concentrates on the food issues that matter in the U.K., with articles about local food producers and retailers along with recipes aplenty.
In MasterChef finalist Hannah's own words, this magazine is a very 'me sort of publication'. It is unashamedly patriotic, but why not? I've never been shy in saying that we have a lot to celebrate in the U.K. when it comes to food, produce and the people who work hard to create a quality product. So I am honoured to be on board.
Please check it out if you are interested, you will not regret it (and my ugly mug won't be seen in there until the New Year!).
