Causing confusion - misinformation from the YHA of all people

Posted on 23 March 2010 in Travel and Holidays (No comments yet - be the first!)

With not long to go before a trip there, you can imagine my surprise and panic upon finding the terse message that ‘This location has now closed’ on the page for a YHA hostel in Greenhead we were booked in at.

Bods’s Cookbook Collection Reviewed - Cranks Fast Food

Posted on 13 March 2010 in Food and Drink (No comments yet - be the first!)

The concept of Cranks Fast Food is a simple one - brilliant, tasty vegetarian food in under 30 minutes - many can be easily done in 15-20 minutes.. Living in a country where sizeable proportions of the population live off ready meals because ‘cooking takes too long’, it’s a book you often want to wave in front of people going ‘LOOK! IT’S EASY!’

Bods’s Cookbook Collection Reviewed - Hansa’s Indian Vegetarian Cuisine

Posted on 12 March 2010 in Food and Drink (No comments yet - be the first!)

31% of people in India are vegetarian, and it’s the country of the world with the most vegetarians. Some regions are more vegetarian than others, and in the Gujarit region, the population and food are primarily vegetarian. So no surprise then that Gujurati cuisine has come up with some excellent dishes over the years.

Over the years, author Clas Clarke became almost the Delia of student cooking and Grub on a Grant became known by many as the student cookbook bible, thanks to its extremely easy to follow recipes which were simple, and wholesome and tasty.

Bods’s Cookbook Collection Reviewed - Delia’s Complete Cookery Course

Posted on 10 March 2010 in Food and Drink (No comments yet - be the first!)

The book covers everything, and starts with the basics. Rather than presenting you with just the recipes, the book explores the equipment you need, general techniques and information about key ingredients.

Cast your mind back to 1961. It’s the swinging sixties and you’re on Carnaby Street. Far out man. There’s fashion everywhere. And a restaurant.. And oh look it’s vegetarian. That’s good healthy food man!

Over the years we’ve now amounted a sizeable cookbook collection, so I’ve decided to review them. I’m going to share what I have and review them for you, sharing what’s good and what’s bad in the veggie cook book arena.

When technology goes bad - traumas during recent user testing.

Posted on 3 March 2010 in BBC, Work (No comments yet - be the first!)

One of the things I’m always keen to do on large work projects is a bit of user testing - where we get real people to come in, try using our services and see what happens. The idea is to see what works, and more importantly, what doesn’t.

Which pub to choose?

Posted on 2 March 2010 in Pubs (No comments yet - be the first!)

When I lived in Ealing and wanted to go to the pub, the discussion between meself and Catherine usually went ‘Pub?’ ‘Yeah. Go on then.’ Then we’d leave the house. Near six years in Merton and the conversation still goes “‘Pub?” “Yeah. Which one?’

Every year I make a number of train journeys outside London. And last year I actually kept a record of it - where I went, what I did, how much it cost. These are the results of that recording. That and a huge pile of orange tickets…
