So yes we all know that Top 10 lists are, by their nature, extremely subjective and open for debate, but hey, I don't think I'm going to knock back getting mentioned in the Times Online list of Top ten food blogs from around the world.
I met up with Simon Majumdar in May 2007 when he visited Sydney as part of his gastronomic world tour of research for his upcoming book, Eat My Globe. We had Vietnamese for lunch - he was dying to try banh mi and I ended up giving him a tutorial in how to make rice paper rolls. I remember it was a really hot day and whilst I tried to give him a little impromptu tour of Chinatown and a geographic rundown of all that's tasty and delicious in Sydney, I was all too aware of my non-specific ramblings and shocking memory when it comes to dates and history.
So perhaps that makes me more impressed that even after meeting me, he still felt inspired to rank this here blog at #4 in a UK newspaper with an international audience. And whilst I don't agree that every food blog should be like this one (how boring would that be!), I'm humbled by his generous and complimentary sentiment.
He estimates there are 10,000 food blogs out there in the world. I think we need even more.
