    I think I’m a little in love with Nigel also! I have three of his books. Recently received the Neil Perry book for my birthday. Not up to Nige’s writing but there are some really useful tips scattered throughout his writing. Tips only a chef would know.My scone recipe is now posted. Let me know if you try it.

    Ah…Nigel. I am missing him. Without my weekly Observer fix, I have to log on and check out his column online. It’s just not the same though – you can’t exactly read the computer over Sunday morning breakfast at the table with any comfort. I’ve bought Real Fast Food for so many friends to much success. I think I’ll need to invest in a new copy for myself at some stage, the old one has got so dog-eared! It was the only cookbook that I allowed myself to pack when travelling to New Zealand. I must admit that it’s no longer on its own on the shelf as I’ve not been able to resist purchasing a few more books – as well as Cuisine, the Donna Hay Magazine and yesterday I just picked up a copy of the just launched Taste food magazine. All stacked neatly on the cookbook shelf, of course!

    Taste were offering a great subscription offer at the Food Show today. $39.95 for 12 months plus a bag of goodies.

    I’m working my way through Taste at the moment and it’s not a bad read – not quite on the Cuisine level though! Were you at the Food Show in Auckland? I was hoping to make it up for it but the Boyfriend’s birthday put a stop to that. How was it?

    I went to the Preview day and it was excellent – no crowds. I’ve finally posted a few pictures today.
