Here I also chat about developments with the blog, new sponsorships and partnerships with brands and flashy events I attend – such as the unforgettable Masterclass with Tetsuya Wakuda!

I went out to hang out some washing on the line this morning, and even though I was a little blurry eyed, I quickly blinked open my eyes and did a double take – was that a round green lump on the vine on the fence?

In My Kitchen: October 2012

Here’s some lovely things that are hanging around my kitchen this month…
