Calling all foodies in the UK and elsewhere

Ok so I’m having another push for interested Facebookers for by rapidly growing group called

UK Foodies

It has a close tie in with what I am doing here but allows much more interaction between members without being all about me and boring people with my health issues if they don’t want too:)

We’re all sharing recipes, food tips, ideas on ingredients, shopping tips – current discussion is best/favourite way of preparing potato mash:)

Please do have a look and please do join in:)

You know it’s Christmas when…

…the parcels arrive – ok, ok so its not technically a Christmas present and Sushi is not considered the most traditional of Yule Tide cuisine but I’m excited all the same and it’s been an eagerly awaited knock at the door from dear old postie:)

In fairness and all joking aside I was pretty impressed with the turn around in getting it out to me anyway we only ordered it at 12:30 on the Thursday 15th and it arrived early morning of the 17th so definite spot on at this time of year:) Fast delivery, securely wrapped and all intact – can’t ask for more.

Had planned on ordering sooner but we’d been distracted by the lead up to yesterdays events but now that’s out the way I’m ready to crack on. So I better explain – after many years of eating sushi all over the Far East and now, as you know, with a pressing need to be eating healthy food regularly I’ve been looking further and further into the opportunities presented by sushi and I’ve discovered a thriving community of home Sushi makers here in the UK and many more restaurants than I expected.

I even tried applying for an apprenticeship in one of the South Yorkshire sushi restaurants but was advised by the college that as I already have a degree I wouldn’t be eligible:(

That being the case I’ve decided to take the plunge in the home kitchen and, after research  found that SushiSushi are considered *the* sushi supplies shop in the UK and placed my order for an all inclusive 4 person kit (I do have a mish-mash of odds and ends from my travels but decided to start from the beginning) Yes you guessed it – its that parcel that’s just arrived so I’m off to have a read up and see what fun I can – its been a few years, wish me luck:)
