Changing of the seasons

Firstly, a big thank you to my first group of blog readers and followers! It’s been an interesting first few weeks exploring what I want to achieve from this adventure, and I am really pleased that plenty of readers are already signed up to hear what I have to say on all things food!

The first BBQ of the Summer called for some tasty venison burgers

The first BBQ of the Summer called for some tasty venison burgers

Easter Monday yielded the very first BBQ of the year! We thoroughly enjoyed tucking into some lovely venison burgers and enjoying the great weather on the South Coast.

So a bit of a teaser on what’s coming up on Wise words on food as we drift through Spring and (hopefully) into Summer…

I’ll shortly be sharing a handful of cracking recipes with everyone, including my highly recommended ‘Thai Fish and Chips’ and ‘Stilton, Mango and Honey Ciabatta’. We’ll be looking at a couple of recent visits to local restaurants, with ‘The Jetty’ in Christchurch firmly on my radar for early May. Not forgetting my popular ‘best kept secrets’ archive, which is almost certain to soon feature where you can find the best cappuccino on the South Coast of England, and a humble high street haven for sourcing oriental ingredients on a budget.

A final encouragement to comment and get involved with everything I post, I’m always interested to hear your views and help shape what you want to hear about.

Speak soon,

Matt

The journey begins…

Over the cliff tops of Branscome towards my Sunday lunch

Over the cliff tops of Branscome towards my Sunday lunch

My fondest childhood memories seem to be consistent with a love of fresh food. Whether it was the anticipation of a hearty beach side Sunday lunch, earned by completing a gruelling but liberating 3 mile cliff top walk, or the fragrant scent of Thai Green Curry emanating from the family kitchen; I always did kick the trend of settling for the usual kids’ fayre of Turkey Dinosaurs, Chips and Peas.

Inspired by my father’s cooking, my experiences of fine to far from fine dining, and my own developing culinary expertise; I hope to take my readers on a journey through the very best restaurants, recipes and best kept secrets across the South of England and beyond. It won’t be all plain sailing…my critique pulls no punches and drives straight to the heart of what we all look for from that first bite…’Wow’.

Simplicity is best. I’ll be looking for the greatest examples of how a simple and fresh set of ingredients can be transformed into a culinary masterpiece.
