One of my favourite
twitterers isnoodlepiewho blogsover here. I really like it when he decides to
cook something in the evening and nips out to the market to buy the fresh produce. I find it inspiring and I'm a wee bit jealous till I get my kitchen sorted out.
In the meantime all I can do is take the occasional picture of
the food I'm eating and blog it. This has made me think I need to get stuck into Jaiku again now that Google have bought the company and temporarily put a hold on new members.
It does feel like the future is heading into a Jaiku/Facebook and location based contextual information mashup. I can't wait for that day. The day when I'm waiting for a plane or train and I can hook up with likeminded individuals who have time to kill and who can also teach me more in 20 minutes conversation than any book could. Now I like books, I'm currently rereading The Master and Margarita but I don't think there is any other better face to face time than chewing the fat with someone I know a little bit about as a result of blogs or whatever other social media is available. Even a few pictures can tell me a lot. So here is my
Haggis moment at Heathrow.
favourite Turkish joint in Croydon which does all this for a fiver
I had lunch with
Rory the other day. It was a much grander affair and well worth the trek over to Docklands for
the best conversationalist in town. No time to snap the food but I can vouch for
First Edition's yummy Lamb. Here's the layout I caught while waiting for the great man to arrive.
Then there was that awesome Scone on Picadilly that stopped me outside the window and lured me inside with thick cream and heaps of fresh berries too.Then there was that Champagne and Chips moment last night. I went for the Rock at the Rock & Sole in Covent Garden with dirty hand cut chips. It was lovelyAnd no food post would be complete without a pic of

At this rate I'm going to be resembling the
Pied Piper pork-pie-star himself
Rob Campbell which I guess means I should get on the
Diet Tangos ASAP
Update: Quite by coincidence Graham Holliday of Noodle Pie has blogged about a response I made to his
twitterover here on his
Guardian Blog for food.
