Versatile Blogger Award

vba

Revolutionary Pie http://revolutionarypie.com/ has kindly nominated my blog for this award.

I am a big fan of this blog (subtitled Colonial Cooking in a 21st-century kitchen) as I am interested in the history of cooking both from the insights food gives us to the past and as a social commentary on family and tradition.

Revolutionary Pie has shown me that there are some fascinating parallels between the colonial cooking experience of America which the blog details and that of Australia’s colonial history.

My nominator tells me that I need to list 7 random facts about myself!

1. The documenting of the process of cooking is as rewarding as the process itself.

2. Beauty – or taste – is in the eye of the beholder – food photography creates a context for food.

3. I have been cooking for as long as I can remember – it’s the most satisfying and creative of domestic endeavours.

4. I am researching family cookery books. Handwritten books from my mother and grandmother are of equal interest as historical documents as much as for forgotten recipes.

5. I am fascinated by decay and entropy in natural and man-made environments.

6. Music: “Beyond ‘ambient’, the music of the Quiet Space incorporates 20th century composition, blissful pop and ethereal drones. It is music to reflect and relax to – a soundscape in which to lose yourself.” http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/quietspace/

7. Insomnia gives me so much more time to reflect…
