Those of you who are regular readers of The Travelling Chopsticks, know that Jamie Oliver is one of my favourite chefs. Not only do I really enjoy his cookbooks and recipes as they are consistently spot on, but I love and support what he stands for: Bringing back real food to our tables.
Jamie Oliver’s current campaign I feel is one of his most important to date – to put compulsory practical food education on the school curriculum. Today, with over 42 million children under the age of five overweight or obese in the world, it is time to act!
Over the last few years, I have been incredibly lucky that I have been able to travel as much as I have, and have had the opportunity to eat at some absolutely wonderful places. So when I was approached by my good friend Andrea who works at The HUNT to write a guest post for them in regards to food and travel, I jumped at the opportunity. Keep Reading
I was really hoping that I would be able to publish another post before I left for the holidays, but it seems as though I am running out of time! Does anyone else feel as though time seems to speed up just before Christmas?!
Tonight my Peruvian and I will start our long trek home from Brazil to Singapore! Although, its not as bad as it sounds as we are stopping off in Abu Dhabi for a few days to break up the journey. Hence it may be slightly quite here on The Travelling Chopsticks.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you who is following The Travelling Chopsticks. All your kind comments and your support over the last year truly inspires me to keep on blogging and to continuously improve myself! I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope you too will be able to spend this holiday season with friends and loved ones!
I have been toying with the idea of starting a post for several months now – and in fact set up this account several weeks ago, but somehow I keep on shying away from actaully writing as I felt a bit silly – who would want to read what I have to write about? There are so many bloggs our there – how is mine going to be different? However enough is enough!
I actaully have lots to write about. In the last year I have lost my job, moved to a new country (Mexcio) on the otherside of the world from my family and friends (Singapore), immersed in a language I don’t understand (Spanish), and in a completely foreign culture to live with the man I love. All sounds very romantic and straight forward – but here is the catch – “C” and I have never lived in the same country before let alone in the same apartment…
At the end of the day this blogg is ultimately for me. A way to record my memories, experiences and recipies. A way for my family and close friends to be able to touch base with me from time to time and continue to be involved in my life – al be it virtually!
So who ever stumbles upon this blogg – you are more then welcome to join me on my adventure – a personal exploration of love, life and most importantly food!!
