Blog Announcement: Releasing My Inner Foodie Communist


C’est Moi, originally uploaded by jaxies.

So, as you may have noticed, I’ve cleaned up the functionality and given the blog a bit of a long overdue facelift. Along with the new and improved look I’ve decided to start my new project which I’ve been mulling over for about a week.

I’ve been thinking about starting up a little interactive food-related feature on this here blog which I’ve named, Releasing My Inner Communist: Food For The People, By The People. I kind of tested it by rolling it out on Kudocities, formerly known as London By London, a place where fellow Londoners could get together to share knowledge about the city we live in, and mostly love to hate. Hey, we’re British: moaning is what we do. Anyway, the response was pretty good and so I’ve decided to roll it out for realsies.

The idea is that you send me a recipe of yours that you really want to see photographed, featured on this blog, and, more importantly, shared with the world, and I make it. I know. Simples. And, as a further added incentive, I will select one recipe at the end of a certain period of time (it depends on how many entrants I get for this) and that person will receive a personalised gift basket from moi, containing various London food-related goodies! Now does that sound good or what?

So, to leave this one open enough that you guys can submit recipes to me (and that I have time to make them), I’m going to give you the whole summer, up until the end of August to submit recipes to me. The only stipulation is that they must be Summer-themed.

Please feel free to submit anything you like, but bear in mind that I currently do not own a BBQ in my flat (guess why) so any recipes that require BBQs will either have to wait to be tested until I can commandeer a friend’s BBQ kit, or suffer some form of indoor cooking!

Interested in taking part? Email me already or drop a comment! I look forward to eating your tasties. Until next time, peace and love.

    I've never won in a food joust so I may pass on this but this is a cool idea.
