Know Your Blogger

I was tagged by Helen at Helen's Journey to answer some questions and then pass them on. I think it's a fun way of letting readers know a bit more about the person behind the blog...

1. What are your current obsessions? Food (need you ask?)

2. Which item from your closet are you wearing most often? V-neck merino wool sweaters from Reiss (another obsession)

3. Last thing you bought? A copy of the News of the World and a bottle of San Pelligrino. Classy.

4. What’s for dinner? A meal with my pal Lucy somewhere in The Mailbox, possibly pizza at Zizzi.

5. Say something to the person who tagged you: I read your blog every day, Helen.

6. What's your favourite recipe that you’ve made? I make a great chicken, or lamb, tagine with pomegranate- studded cous cous.

7. Vacation spots you must visit before you die?

  • Mexico
  • Vietnam
  • Istanbul

8. Three things to do before you die?

  • Eat as many different foods as possible
  • Write a food book (recipe, or journal)
  • Become a lady of leisure

9. What are you reading right now? Bill Granger's new recipe book Feed me Now

10. What is the last movie you saw and enjoyed? Rate it out of 5 stars. Gran Torino with Clint Eastwood. Four stars, maybe four and a half.

11. What’s your guilty pleasure? Diet Coke, butter, fresh bread. In large quantities.

12. What’s your favourite smell? Fresh bread and doughnuts.

13. Best thing you ate or drank lately? A simple fluffy omelette I had for breakfast yesterday, with plenty of grated mature cheddar.

14. (replaced question) Favourite cuisine? Mexican.

15. Name the last blog you visited before this one, on which you left a comment. (link and info please!) Thinspired . I commented on a Le Crueset dish!

16. Talk about one regret in your life? No regrets.

17. (question I added) Who would play you in a film about your life? I'd let all the Hollywood A-listers fight it out between themselves.

18. (question I added) Best blog for all the latest food news from the second city? Meetandtwoveg, of course.
