About Post Author
Allow me to introduce myself with a quote from Nigella Lawson, “My qualification is as an eater”! Originally hailing from Hong Kong, I spent my formative years shuttling between one of the most densely populated places on earth and deepest, darkest Dorset, where resided an archaic institution for the gifted and talented – only joking! I’ve since discovered that I take to the country just as well as the urban intensity of Hong Kong, London and now Sydney. What does not surprise me is that I’ve ended up at the periphery of the food industry as I have always loved, and have a deep abiding interest in, food in all its glory. And Truffles! I just love truffles. Truffles happily combine with another great love I have, dogs. I feel the need to confess, however, my dogs are not truffle dogs as I’ve raised them much like my children, free range. But then, everyone’s happy! I love food, I love cooking and I certainly love eating!
