Hiya! I’m going to keep this short and sweet, because who really wants to spend their time reading the ‘about’ page of a blog??
I’ve been writing for my whole life (just under eighteen years – so really not a massive amount of time) and I love it. From stories at four, to fake newspaper articles at seven, to fiction pieces of crime and drama at eleven, to poetry at fourteen, to even more creative pieces now, it’s a way of channeling everything inside of my head and making it into some form of reality.
I’ve been published a few times – only small articles – but each time, it gave me a sense of hope and a surge of adrenaline. Someone suggested to me that I should start a food blog as I eat out far too much. I laughed it off initially: how could I ever become a food critic? My cooking ability is nothing short of disastrous – I once set fire to a toaster. The thought stayed with me though, and as horribly cliché as the phrase is, a seed was planted in my mind, and it began to grow and develop.
So this is just a little taster (if you pardon the pun) of the foods and places that I’ve spent my time with, mostly around Glasgow, although some will be hopefully slightly further afield as I explore my adventurous side (and purse – the train is a fortune when you can no longer get away with being a child) and branch out into the world of ‘fine dining’.
