You’ve probably noticed that over the past couple of months this blog has become more of a noticeboard for other writing I am doing. There’s two reasons for this. Firstly, I’ve been writing full time again since September, so it’s much better for me to sell my articles or posts rather than self publish them here. Secondly, I’ve not been incredibly inspired to write anything here in a while despite my beautiful wife taking me to Wild Garlic AND River Cottage for my birthday which included a stay at a bed and breakfast small holding that raised pigs. That was a truly amazing weekend. She has also got me something incredible for Christmas, but that will be revealed later this year; I’m bloody spoiled, I tell you.
Whilst I can’t always write about what I am working on and I’m now selling more of my better ideas, I’m going to start sharing some of the stuff I see relating to food during the week that I find cool. There will still be posts linking to online content I’ve been commissioned for; though unfortunately not for my print articles, and I’ll still throw up travel bits and pieces when they arise – expect Japan posts and more San Francisco later this year amongst other potential jaunts and jollies I get myself involved with.
So here’s a cool video on making Vietnamese coffee. I drank a frightening amount of these in Hanoi in November and brought myself back one of these little coffee drippers. In all honesty, I’ve only used it once. Maybe I’ll bust it out later. Oh, hang on. No condensed milk. Here’s the video anyway. It’s produced by High Beam Media who used to do a lot of the videos for Chow.com.
