Arriving rather late into the blogging game (I claim web-unsavviness as my excuse, not a lack of opinions), I was confronted with the question, does the world really need another blogger? In particular, does the world really need another food blogger? In sober honesty, most people would say “no,” but I think the answer is YES. Specifically, the world needs ME.
Here’s the thing: I am passionate (some might say obsessed) about food, I am fussy and a bit political about my ingredients, and I know more about provenance and cooking and eating than the average bear. However, I’m usually broke, so on a budget. There simply are not enough blogs for people like me, who crave to eat well, but need to eat cheaply. I eat (and drink) out when I can afford it (and sometimes when I can’t), but I also cook (well), and want to share my food. Hopefully this happy gluttonous mix appeals to you.
Most of the recipes on my blog are targeted at busy people who (like me) love good food, love to cook, and love bold and unusual flavor combinations without much eye towards food trends, but may not have the time to plan and execute highly elaborate, intricate dishes.
I spent three and a half years eating my way through London’s restaurants, markets, falafel joints, and food stalls, and I travel as much as I can, and this blog features some of my favorite (and least favorite) experiences. Most of the time, however, I cook. I’m currently in beautiful Seattle (with a return to London on the horizon), so over the next few months expect an emphasis on fresh seafood and local ingredients.
Like my blog but too shy to comment? Please send an email (I always write back) to skimwilk (at) yahoo (dot) com.
So cheers! Let’s eat.
