Soon To Be Famous?


I'm not sure how I found this blog, but am I ever glad I did. It is built by Aidan Brooks in the UK who seems to be a young man who has his hair on fire to cook. Frankly, I am astonished by the quality of it's content (lots of interesting recipes, videos, movie critiques etc.) the degree of sophistication of the construction (Who knew you could do all of this in Blogger?) and the lastly, but in no way least-ly, the sense of determination to be a cuisinier of substance.
If I was a betting man I'd bet a sautoir of quid that Aidan will be starred by the fat tire man within the next half-decade -maybe sooner.

This is truly inspiring; check it out!

Thanks for the great support! It's truly an honour to be spoken of with such admiration.

I met Trig/Aidan through my blog and have had the opportunity to watch him in action at a blogger lunch. He moves around a kitchen with confidence and is very passionate about his work. I too believe that there are many many great things in his future. Hopefully one day I'll be able to say "I know the chef at (insert Michelin star here...)"

Thanks for your kind words, Krista. It was a great pleasure to meet you again at The Providores last week.

Bob - I've accepted an offer to go to Barcelona to train at a restaurant that serves amazing food, without being concerned about winning Michelin stars:

I'm off in less than three weeks and really looking forward to it. Thanks for your encouragement!
