The range of things discussed on food blogs can be surprising. Just look at the selection below – from globetrotting food adventures to doorstepping the new hot tickets, to spending time with the family. Here were a few of my favourite posts from November 2012.
It seems like a decade ago right now but the start of November brought bonfire night. Butcher Baker’s post on their bonfire weekend is not overly food-centric but a lovely story of a family holiday well-spent.
I can’t get enough of Michelle’s blog and this post on apple and berry swirls demonstrate why. Simple but glorious home-cooked family food.
I’ve always had a love affair with Japan; I took Japanese lessons at University and watch a lot of Japanese films with subtitles as a teenager. I’ve always dreamed of going to Japan and Kavey has written about her adventures there. Very jealous.
Not enough time to stand stirring a risotto? Try Katie’s baked cheese and tomato risotto, which looks just lovely.
Black pudding Nutella anyone? That’s exactly what spiritual-sister blog In Search of Heston recreated from the Fat Duck chef’s current series. Suitably bonkers.
I don’t get out to many good restaurants so I press up against the glass of reviews of new places like a grubby urchin. This review of Hawksmoor on Air Street was no exception, it sounds outstanding.
If you’re in the mood for a retro kick, well that’s exactly what I got from this fish finger sandwich recipe. No Captain Birds Eye here though, just honest cod fillets breaded and fried in a big bap. Lovely.
Read something great this month I haven’t mentioned? Let me know!
