Who Art Thou

Just a British guy who loves food, eating, chocolate, second hand books..oh and did I say chocolate? I have returned from living in South Korea (without a oven) and I’m rediscovering the joys of baking.

Join me on my journey, failures and successes and lets see where it all ends up.

If you have any recipies you want to share or would like me to try out please tell me! leave a message below,

Things I Heart:

Rococo Chocolate, Japanese Cinema, The Guardian, Kate Bush, Winter, Β and Korean Ice Cream (Melon is yum).

    Had the Muffins in my pack up for work, had to fight the other guys off , they all wanted some, did not have any of the pumpkin pie, cannot get my head around the contents of a pumpkin in a pie.
    The strawberry cake was lush lasted 1 day.

  41. Hello there,

    I’m a researcher at ITV Productions and we are currently searching for potential contestants for Britain’s Best Dish.

    In case you haven’t seen the show before Britain’s Best Dish is an annual competition hosted by ITV for amateur cooks. In it we look for Britain’s best starter, main course and dessert. The winner of the competition receives the accolade of Britain’s Best Dish and takes home a Β£10,000 cash prize.

    We’re starting another series in the coming weeks and will be holding our regional auditions in May.

    As you are clearly a keen foodie you are just the sort of person we are looking for so if you are at all interested in taking part or know anyone who may be interested please email ASAP with your name, contact number, and where you’re from to bestdish@itv.com and we’ll be in touch soon.



  42. I love your blog! Very beautiful and yummy looking cakes you’ve made. Looking forward to trying some out. πŸ™‚

  43. Awesome blog, Michael. Thanks so much for posting these gorgeous recipes.
