In my kitchen October 2012
I’ve been asked on more than one occasion what it is like to blog for a living. Alas, I cannot give the answer as I don’t. My Custard Pie has brought lots of lovely opportunities my way but I don’t run ads, sponsored posts, sell e-books or anything like that so need to do something else to pay the bills. Dashing off to London last month to Food Blogger Connect (thank you Airmiles), pressure of work in October plus running the Food Photography and Styling Workshop at the Miele Gallery with Meeta has taken its toll on my time in the kitchen. It also made me a bit late in revealing the winners of the Antonio Carluccio book give-away (see below). Sincere apologies *blushes*. All this has brought some interesting things into my kitchen this month:
The Numi tea, Tropicai organic coconut flour, Organic Herb Company products and Down to Earth will all be at the International Fine Food Festival in Dubai 30 Oct – 2 Nov. I’m moderating the Cookbook Club discussion with Ariana Bundy, Suzanne Husseini and Laila Al Khaja. I’m a bit nervous and excited; do come and say hello if you’re at the festival.
This video of cardamom panna cotta was taken in my kitchen by the very talented Reem for Dubai Media and aired during Ramadan on Noor TV.
In your kitchen
And the lucky winners of the Antonio Carluccio books are Abigail, Amrita, Rupal, Nina and Stuart – you’ll receive an email from me letting you know how to collect your book. Huge thanks to everyone who took the time to enter and left such interesting comments. Let me know what you cook from Antonio Carluccio – love to share recipes. As always you can see what’s in Celia’s kitchen (Fig Jam and Lime Cordial) here.
