A List update and other shenanigans

You might have noticed a few changes to the blog over the last few days. If you like them, thank the stomach bug that left me incapable of doing much else between Saturday and Tuesday.

(I’m blaming a dodgy steak and kidney pie.)

At the top of the page, I’ve finally put up a full version of the list of Foods To Try Before I Die.* I’ve also added a slightly dubious list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) and given the About section a little bit of a tweak.

Furthermore, I gave the sidebar a thorough fiddling to hopefully make it a tad more user-friendly.

You should be able to see on there that I have now signed up to Twitter. I know that in the past month alone I have renounced it as being “a platform for evil” and declared that I’d never sign up to it because my attention span is too long.

But I’m a hypocrite. So there you go.

Feel free to start following me!

*I’ve added a few more items:

Abalone – these are large sea slugs.

Beijing Duck (at Made in China, Beijing) – apparently the best Peking duck in the world. If you watched Heston Blumenthal’s ‘Perfection’ programme, you’ll have seen it on there.

Chicken Sashimi – this is just what it sounds like: raw chicken. Obviously not something you should try with an intensively farmed chicken from a supermarket – that might make you die.

Matsutake Mushrooms – a type of mushroom, highly prized.

Victorian Mince Pie – this is the traditional mince pie, where the mincemeat contains real meat. I plan to make a few this Christmas; I don’t expect anybody else to want to try them.

  1. I want one of those mince pies. So there’s one person.

  2. Awesome. Think I’ll probably follow this recipe:

    These guys seem to know what they’re talking about.
