Media mentions

It has only just come to my attention that this here blog was mentioned in Sunday Magazine in last weekend's Sunday Telegraph.

The sentence, which runs along the bottom of the Appetite food news section (page 38) says:

www.grabyourfork.blogspot.com is the blog for Sydney connoisseurs with their fingers on the pulse. Log on to find markets, new restaurants and cooking tips.

To say I'm flattered is an understatement. Thanks to Veruca Salt for sourcing the evidence and florizal for the alluding comment that raised my suspicions.

And all this on top of a recent mention in the Editor's blog at Epicurious.com and an excerpt last month in the Blogwatch section of Crikey. Crikey!

Just arrived? Welcome.

Now grab your fork, and dig in.

    Huge congrats, and totally deserving of the world's attention!

    Totally deserved. It must be mainstream media week for bloggers - I made it into the education pages of AFR this week, in an article called "PhD students enter the blogoshpere" (not online, sadly).

    Hi case_in_point - Thanks. I don't know if I deserve it, but I'll accept it graciously just the same :)

    Hi Tubby - We don't normally get the Sunday Telegraph so I really had no idea. A nice surprise though. And thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying the site.

    Hi Veruca Salt - Thanks for finding the article. How serendipitious!

    Hi Julia - Thank you. I'm a little awed by all the attention lately. Humbled but pleased :)

    Hi m-h - Congratulations to you too! Blogs are definitely a force to be reckoned with. I think their grassroots approach has undeniable appeal.

    Hi jenjen - Thanks. You are too kind. Benchmark? A new beltmark perhaps. lol

    Hi artizen flair - Thank you. I think my recent lunch at Ocean Room counts as my first free dining experience. Now that's a high benchmark!

    Hi killereater - Thanks. It's a great way to start the week!

    Hi Swee - Thanks. I aim to!

    Hi Pickles - lol. And thanks, it was a nice surprise.
