As may be evident due to my lack of posts over the last few weeks, I have recently been a little lacking in inspiration. This does not by any means suggest that I have not eaten some incredible things in fantastic places. The main reason I started writing was to document my adventures on our Food and Wine Tour around France and Spain and give myself that extra push to go and find out more about this product or that farmer, this restaurant or that chef, this little shop or that entrepreneur. With no immediate project to explore another land other than embarking on my career in the Food Retail Industry (quite a large project in itself!), I am no longer scooting across foreign cities and fields meeting local producers who can tell me of their own adventures in the world of food.
Hearing the stories of all of these fascinating people on my European travels was so inspiring that my long term career ambition has recently evolved. This idea is still young, however it does involve working with personalities of all sorts in the Food Industry. Upon my wanderings of London’s streets, markets and food festivals; I have met an enormous wealth of personalities with individual tales to tell and who are passionate about their foodie products. I have therefore decide to explore this treasure trove of market hideouts, back street cafés and bustling specialist shops to take my posts in a new direction, centred around the people at the heart of the food I eat and what has lead them down these paths. In this way I hope that I will be able to demonstrate the beauty of the diversity of the people behind our food in the city of London, the UK and beyond..
If you know anyone with a foodie story to tell (or have one of your own!) I’d love to get in touch and discover some interesting products and ventures!
