Versatile Blogger Award

I am so honoured to have been nominated this week for the versatile blogger award.

 Thank you so much to http://nocturnefirefay.wordpress.com/for nominating me. I am so touched. I really enjoy blogging and its great to know that other people enjoy reading my blog too.

The rules for the award are:
1) Thank the person who nominated me and link back to them in my post.

2) Share 7 things about myself

3) Pass the award on to 15 more bloggers that I enjoy

4) Contact the bloggers I have chosen to let them know that they have been selected!

Okay so seven things about myself
1, My father is half English half Italian and my mother is Indian. I was brought up in a house with the most delicious food from these countries and it probably started my love affair and passion for food.

2, I left school at 16 to study at catering college, after a year on a professional chefs diploma course I did business studies (with the intention of opening my own eating establishment) and then onto university to study Baking technology management Bsc. I am in my third and final year now.

3, My favourite colour is red. To the point I’m a bit obsessed with anything red 🙂

4, I love travelling. I want to travel around the world. I love trying new and interesting foods and exploring a countries culture.

5, I started reading the hobbit and Lord of the rings with my dad when I was about 9 and didn’t finish till I was about 14. My favourite book and I think the films are pretty good too. Love it!

6, I am the youngest of 3 daughters and my sisters are my best friends in the world.

7, If I had to choose 5 desert island dish’s, that I would live on for the rest of my life i would have:
– Mums chicken soup, It’s full of veg, ginger and dumplings. Completely delicious.
– Nicoise salad, I love this salad, its perfectly filling and fresh but not too heavy.
– Egg and tomato, a lovely garlicy tomato sauce, the eggs are poached in the sauce and served runny on toast to soak up all the juices.
– Salt beef bagels, the stuffed to brim with salt beef kind, mustard and pickled ccumber.
– Crispy aromatic duck with pancakes. Crunchy, crispy and succulent duck with plum sauce cucumber and sweet pickles.
