I’m going to try and recommend links on a more regular basis. God knows, I spend enough of my time surfing around and I come across interesting things often enough. Here are a few sites I’ve been checking out recently: I’ve just read "Dude, where’s my country?" by Michael Moore, and am feeling more than […]

Spicy family secret

Monday, March 8th, 2004

Mother recently passed on to me an ingredient for her bolognaise recipe which her own mother, my Maltese Grandma had tipped her off to. As she casually mentioned this my thoughts turned immediately to Mediterranean family secrets, omerta, and the general glamour of secret things.

I’ve discovered a new genre of music. Such moments are always exciting, but this time it’s particularly so as the style in question is very much up my street.
