Having spent the past few weeks pondering the fate of the site, I’ve came to the conclusion I’m not happy with the direction it’s going in. When I started the blog back in 2011, I had hopes of learning as I went along but that really hasn’t happened. While over the past year and a half I’ve had some great experiences like the crab & lobster demo in Cavistons last summer, and become slightly more adventurous with my cooking at home, but that’s only a tiny little bit of the overall picture.
Until the other week I couldn’t tell you what a Sachet D’Épices was. Albeit a technical term, most searching for recipes wouldn’t expect to stumble upon – It’s something I’d should have some idea about, considering it’s basically just parsley, thyme, bay, peppercorns & some garlic if you’re into it.
Taking this into account, I’ve bought myself a digital bookshelf full of books, including “The Professional Chef” – Which I plan on eating my way through, cooking most dishes and getting my head around all the techniques. Of course this means I’ll be blogging about nearly everything, hopefully weekly with a recipe or two!
However there will still be an eerie silence across the blog for the next few weeks as everything is stepping up over at The Purple Pantry. So naturally all efforts will be going into that until it goes live very soon!
