I’ve wanted to write something about food and drink for some time, so here it is, finally!

Once upon a time I was considered a fussy eater, and known to only eat chips, and perhaps the odd chicken nugget. Now, some decades later I eat most things, but alas, am still not a fan of the dreaded mushroom or the evil peanut. I still do love a good chip, but my consumption of these tasty delights has reduced to minuscule proportions, and usually in sweet potato-wedge form.

Please note: When it comes to wine, beer and food, I consider myself a novice. So any mistakes or anything you disagree with, tell me to go ‘do one’. Let the banter commence.

I am hoping to provide some unique content in due course using some technical wizardry I’m interested in learning, but until that day it will be full of whatever I feel is interesting at the time.

It could be a restaurant discovered whilst travelling, or raving about some local delights found wandering my manor.

Just so you know, I came across the phrase ‘bacchanalian propensities’ whilst reading Dicken’s ‘A Tale of Two Cities’, and thought it was a wonderful turn of phrase. I stole it as it seemed rather apt for this blog. Where does the word originate? Well you may know of Bacchus, the Roman god of agriculture, wine and fertility which was based upon the Greek god Dionysus.
