About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

Food Blog Survey
Kitchenhand recently found a meme that sort of links us food bloggers together. It seems like a great idea to get to know each other a little better, so here goes.

List three recipes you have recently bookmarked from food blogs to try:

Kalyn's kitchen beautiful looking roasted carrots and mushrooms with thyme. Wonderful flavours that are also healthy too. If truth be told, I should spend a bit more time at this blog.

Chili & Vanilia fully authentic goulash recipe. We make gulyasleves (goulash soup), but sometimes yearn for something a little more substantial.

When I have enough time on my hands, The Unemployed Cook's Cuban Sandwich looks like a goer. Right from scratch, with an ingenious way of overcoming a lack of a panini grill or sanwich press. Even if I didn't want to make the sandwich, the bread looks delectable. And with a name like that, who wouldn't want to try one.

Do you know of another food blog in your vicinity:

I know several. Melbourne has a vibrant community of food bloggers, which includes Tomato, Vicious Ange and My Favourite Plum. If you want to get into a good food fight, Ed from Tomato is your man.

A food blog located far from you:

I think Pille from nami-nami is about as far away from me as you can get and still be on the same planet. However the quality of the food would make a trip most worthwhile.

A foodblog, or several, you have discovered recently and where you found it:

Other blogs sidebar links are the most fertile grounds to discover new foodblogs. I particularly like Stephencooks sidebar, but always check out everyone else's sidebars. Ones that I have recently bookmarked include An Obsession With Food, Seriously Good and Hungry In Hogtown.

What's the best thing about food blogging?

Sharing with like minded people thoughts on all things culinary, also being able to have conversations about my hobby without the peculiar looks.

What's the worst thing?

Not being able to type fast enough to keep up with my thoughts. Not having enough computer skills to make my blog a bit nicer.

Any people or bloggers you want to tag with this meme?

Not really, I tagged a few people a while ago for a different meme, so anyone who wants to have a go, here's your chance.

Dear Tankeduptaco - thank you for your kind words about Nami-nami! I'm flattered you think the trip across the world to try my food would be worthwhile:)
And Kalyn's roasted carrots & mushrooms were divine - I made them last week. One of my Estonian readers added parnsips as well, so I might try that next time..

Thanks for mentionig Seriously Good. And if you like Stepehen and me be sure to check out Belly Timber (http://www.belly-timber.com/). Chopper, Stephen, and I all have similar approachs to food.

Hey, thanks for mentioning my blog and the Roasted Carrots. They were quite a hit, and something I'll be making over and over.

Roasted carrots and mushrooms? What an intriguing combination!

At 8:13 am, Blogger neil said...

Hi Pille, indeed a trip to your neck of the woods would be worth the effort, however with the price of oil the way it is, I'll be coming by sailing ship, just keep everthing warm for me.

Hi Kevin, no problem, good blogs should be talked about. I have read belly timber ever since we both entered into the same paper chef comp. Snails in beetroot cups, yum!

Hi Kalyn, Your blog is so inspiring me to lose some unwanted weight because I can still eat well, which is so important in not feeling deprived.

Hi kitchen queen, that was exactly my thought! When you see the picture of it, you just want to eat it. BTW thanks for the link.

I am definately going to have to check some of those out.

At 3:56 am, Blogger Kitchen Queen said...

Thank you for your very interesting blog!

TuT, where do you buy your paprika or is it all the same? Do you use hot or sweet for goulash?

At 8:50 am, Blogger neil said...

Hi Kitchenhand, we always use sweet, supermarket varities for our goulash, not because of M, it's just that none of our recipes call for hot. If we wanted authentic Hungarian paprika would would buy it from Gruner Butcher & Deli at 227a Barkly St St Kilda. Peter Gruner is from Hungary and stocks a wide range of Hungarian products. D particularly likes the hot paprika paste in the tube and uses it as a condiment. The only other paprika we use is Spanish smoked which goes well with fish dishes, but a little bit goes a long way. A very long way, I've had a small tin of it for about 5 years now.
