Hello 2012! Am I glad to see you?! 2011 was far too dramatic for my liking. However, I suspect that 2012 may not be so different. There's a trip to Hong Kong, our wedding, the completion of my MBA and a new house on the cards, but you want to know the fabulous thing about all of this? They are "good-dramatic". None of this knee reconstruction business, thank you very much!
So, what's on the cards for this blog? Well, there will of course be more eating, reviewing, recipes and travel in 2012, but I'm pleased to inform you that I'll also be taking part in a year-long (yes, you read that right - eek!) A-Z cooking challenge conceived by fellow Melburnian, Laura and friend. There are 26 fortnights in a year and 26 letters in the alphabet. It is thus only fitting that each fortnight in 2012 I shall endeavour to cook something starting with 'A' and then 'B' and then...okay you know the drill!
My A-Z recipes won't be any old food, oh no! Instead, I shall attempt to create an index of ice-cream, an alphabet of affogato, a gazette of gelati. Why, I hear you ask? Because I was lucky enough to receive this brilliant, albeit admittedly somewhat lurid, ice-cream maker from my beloved for Christmas.
here and feel free to join the party! What will my first ice-cream be? Apple? Apricot? Almond? Nope. I'm going to keep you guessing for just a little while longer!
