Welcome to my big fat blog!
It’s mainly about food, especially restaurants, and with a bit of travel info and cultural stuff thrown in. I am very fortunate to be able to travel a lot with my job and the blog is a way for me to remember where I’ve been, mainly by recording what I’ve eaten!
There has been no attempt to monetise it, partly because I don’t like to compromise, and partly because I can’t be bothered to push it on social media which is pretty essential noweadays if you want a large readership. So it remains more of a personal diary that will I hope be useful for other people.
The result should be a useful summary of available information for all kinds of travellers, especially for major cities in Italy or Spain, but also for a lot of oddball places off the beaten track that most tourists would never go to. At the same time though please don’t consider these posts to be comprehensive guides to a whole city, they are just snapshots, often just about a particular corner of town.
Wherever I go, my aim is to search out and try the local delicacies, whatever they may be. After a hard day’s work, eating well is what makes or breaks my day, so you can rest assured that I will hunt out the good stuff. It also means that these reviews are my honest personal opinions about food and drink that I have paid for myself.
I’m not a culinary expert, although I have worked in kitchens and I love to cook, so you should probably take some of the things I write, and make, with a large pinch of salt! However, if you’re like me and just love anything to do with food, I’m sure there will be something in here to interest you.
May your stomach never be empty!
