"I remember being the fussiest child ever. I would only ever eat plain spaghetti, plain baked potatoes or (strangely) bridies. I didn't start eating veg or experimenting with food until my 20s!"
Hello Noble Nourishment, so tell us...
When did you begin your blog and what inspired you to start it?
I started the food blog in January 2010 in an attempt to combine my love of food and writing. Other food blogs inspired me to learn how to cook, then my confidence grew and I started creating my own recipes!
If you could go back in time, what is the one piece of advice you would give your younger self as they started out on your blog?
I would say: Don't stress out about blog post frequency and don't fall into the reciprocal trap of visiting/keeping up with other bloggers.
Setting demands on yourself such as "post 3 new recipes a week" only serves to suck the fun out of cooking/blogging. Now I blog as I please, and visit other blogs as I please. Now, the blog is more like a personal food journal than anything else, and I'm very happy with that!
What is your favourite dish of all time?
It has to be my mother's Scotch Broth recipe. I really could live on it for the rest of my life, gladly!
Your photos are great, in your opinion what makes a dish beautiful?
Thank you! At the risk of sounding cheesy, a beautiful dish is one that is made with love, regardless of how it looks on the plate.
Do you have a secret weapon in the kitchen?
I adore my mandolin slicer, which you can get for under a fiver in most supermarkets. It helps maintain my dauphinois/boulangere potato obsession!
What is your earliest memory involving food?
I remember being the fussiest child ever. I would only ever eat plain spaghetti, plain baked potatoes or (strangely) bridies. I didn't start eating veg or experimenting with food until my 20s!
Are there any chefs that you admire in particular?
I love Ina Garten (of Barefoot Contessa) with her unashamed flamboyance, and Jamie Oliver's 15/30 minute meals TV series. Nigella Lawson is fabulous too.
If you could be a contestant or guest on any cooking show what show would you choose?
Come Dine With Me, though I'm fairly sure I'd end up kicking the other contestants out of my house if they started any of their nonsense!
Which Gourmandize recipe would you recommend? (if none take your fancy add your own and share it with us!)
You've caught me on an experimental day: I'd quite fancy trying your Green Apple & Prosciutto Salsa over Cod.
Any last words or message for our readers?
Thanks for reading my wee interview and have a gander on the food blog! Here's my A to Z List of recipes:
Thank you Noble Nourishment for answering our questions and see you soon!
