I write to you today, on the occasion of my second blogiversary. In fact, I write to you in my first week back at school and in my final year of culinary studies as a commercial cookery chef. Wow! my final year….
It means I’ll really have to put my head down this year, as I strive to finish some (fairly big assignments.) Of course, work deadlines will always loom. Though for now, I’m in a stress free zone…at least until tomorrow…bye, bye, chocolate…
As for this blog, it first began as a way to document my studies and all the delicious recipes I’d be creating and testing and testing again, (plus a whole lot more,) over those three years.
It’s actually amazing to reach my third year at all. I was placed into a class with Working Apprentices. Me, the home cook who spent the last 10+ years working in design, with 60hr+ weekly apprentices practicing their skills day in and out… I was so nervous!
As the story goes, it lead to my ongoing love with Instagram and my efforts to achieve the best with what I could learn in mobile photography.
I was lucky to be selected for a small feature too, (which I celebrated for months afterwards) for this Pear Tart from Jamie Magazine
I was so happy. It truly gave me the confidence to keep pursuing my goals to eventually combine my love of design and food.
For those who’ve been watching, you would know I signed with the Tastemade Network late last year and that I was so very fortunate to meet some fellow Sydney foodies, for my first mobile photography workshop too.
And so…after two big years I’ve finally decided to move ahead and give this blog a well overdue overhaul.
Which means, sadly that Girl in a Food Frenzy will be quiet for a little while, (whilst) she gets some well needed maintenance done. And yes, the site will be offline to eventually return,
Bigger, Brighter, Shinier & New!
Before I depart, you should know that you can still get your Food frenzy fix via my social media links on Instagram, Twitter, Google + and Facebook, (follow via the widgets in the sidebar.)
There will still be lots of delicious recipes and foodie adventures on my YouTube and Tastemade app-i-sodes, so you won’t go hungry!
You can totally find more delicious recipes like the above Savoury Bread Puddings, to fill that little void in your tummies, whilst you wait.
I promise it will be a very worthwhile wait at that…
Savoury Bread Puddings:
If you’re looking for a smart way to make this veggie friendly, then perhaps a slice of fresh tomato (in place of the Ham,) or a nice handful of spinach between each layer could work? Otherwise read on for the ingredients list below.
1 bread roll,
2 eggs, whisked
A splash of milk
A slice of jamon or ham
Parmesan cheese to garnish
Chives to garnish
Salt & pepper to taste
Freshly grated nutmeg
