HERMANO SEGUNDO'S BEST TASTES OF 2008

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by fine dining guru, Steve Plotnicki asking if I would contribute to his "BEST TASTES OF 2008" alongside assorted chefs, professional foodwriters and bloggers



I was only too happy to comply for, although we are polar opposites when it comes to many aspects of dining, I can recognise in Steve a similar obsession with food and a similar distaste for bad meals, however differently we may define them.

You can read my contribution and those of others over on his blog OPINIONATED ABOUT DINING

Checking back through my photographs for the year trying to come up with my best meals was a happy experience and allowed me to relive, not only the second half of the EAT MY GLOBE journey, but also some of the meals since I returned to London and from other trips, most notably to Los Angeles and Pas De Calais.

It also made me realise how much I missed cooking when I was on the road, for although I am an enthusiastic rather than talented cook, there are few things in life more enjoyable than spending time in the kitchen.

As always a huge thank you to all those who helped make 2008 so special. If 2009 turns out to be half as good, it's going to be very enjoyable indeed

A very rewarding set of piccies.

I went off to read Steve's blog and was interested to see he had a review of L'Enclume (which we're off to in a couple of weeks). Equally interested t see he describes it as "outside Leeds".

Glad it'll be Mrs Harters and TomTom doing the navigating, not Steve.
