Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver is on the hunt for the next big cookery author. Question is, did I throw my hat into the ring…?
Long-time followers will know about my love of food, drink, restaurants, bars, hotels… the list goes on. And for a while, I entertained the idea of being a food writer. Indeed, I ran a food blog, Expensive Tastes, for the best part of seven years. With modest success, I might add. Especially when I got invited to review a very grand London restaurant back in 2016. But since closing its website down in 2019, apart from the occasional guest restaurant review posted on Instagram, I have largely fallen off the food writing wagon. So when my frequent collaborator Aaron Hayes brought this video from one of my favourite celeb chefs, Jamie Oliver, to my attention, I was drawn into something I found hard to resist.
