The truly outstanding Deb in Hawaii has very graciously passed on this award to me. It is humbling to have a really wonderful blogger like her passing this to me.
One of the things I didn't expect but am really loving about my blog is the way the blogosphere embraces you. You meet like-minded (i.e gluttonous) people and share recipes with love and generosity. You try new tastes and get an insight into other cultures. It is enriching on more than just a culinary level and I think it is quite amazing.
So. In honour of my introduction to home-cured bacon, I pass this on to Elle, of Elle's New England Kitchen. She's been given it before, so she is clearly doing something right!
