Should our readers wonder where we’ve wandered off to over the next month or so, rest assured we have not forever abandoned our realm of Gourmandistan, nor our two lovely British Shorthair cats. We have simply absented ourselves once again to Great Britain, this time on the coast of the North Sea in Alnmouth, a town about halfway between Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne.
While we certainly hope to do some cooking, we are at the moment unsure whether we’ll be posting on this site. Our energies may instead be spent photographing birds, following Hadrian’s Wall, warding off gusty winds and rain and avoiding kippered herring, supposedly a local specialty. We may end up being inspired by smoked fish, but our explorations will probably have to wait for our return to our own and most likely better-equipped kitchen.
The cats will be waiting. We hope you will as well. (However, if you want to follow our ramblings in real time, we’ll be posting for family and friends here. It may not have recipes, but we’ll try to be amusing.)
