100 Blog Posts
I never actually thought I would be sat here writing my 100th post, I figured once I started University again by September I'd get bored with it and leave it to be forgotten in the depths of the Internet but alas no and here I am writing this and wondering what blog post 101 will contain.
It's been a fun 11 months. The blog plus Twitter has opened up many an opportunity and events that otherwise I would never have known about it. So I think to mark 100 posts I'll recap on some highlights:
Birthday cake - easily one of the best cakes I've made and my first venture into sugar craft
Buttermilk scones - the first ever recipe post.
Beef wellington - Christmas Dinner, beats turkey any day
Chicken and papaya curry - The first blogger challenge hosted by Dom at Belleau Kitchen
Chocolate, honeycomb and truffle cake - well just look at it, it's huge!
Fig Tart - another blogger challenge, a thing of beauty.
My Secret Tea Room - hosted by the delightful 'Bakelady' with superb home baking and my first ever underground supper club
The Spice Club - another underground supper club hosted by Monica and her lovely family, superb Indian food.
Test Space Kitchen - a deconstructed whole hog followed by a huge Eton mess in an abandoned run down old building? you couldn't make this stuff up.
Clandestine Cake Club - turn up with a cake in a random location, eat loads more of other peoples cake, meet lots of lovely people. drink tea. - brilliant
Well there you are, a few highlights since I started and I haven't mentioned all the superb restaurants I have visited in Leeds, Sheffield, London, Edinburgh etc...
Here's to the next hundred, hope you will join me.
