I am a great fan of the 'Food Urchin' blog. The Essex/London based author manages to bring together passionate home cooking, fabulous seasonal recipes, allotmenteering and restaurant experimentation in a seamless and humourous way. Informative, Interesting and fun would be words I would use to describe this food lovers blog.

Gourmet on the Go!

Gourmet on the Go!
Ooh look, it's me! Ok, I am cheating by shamelessly promoting myself on my website, although it is my site, so I can do as I wish. Now, I don't get to blog much, and everyone else listed on this page has a more impressive blog than me, although don't let that deter you from taking a look - sympathetic comments are always welcome.
