1st bloggerversary!

Gourmet Traveller is ONE!!

When I started the blog exactly a year ago I had no idea how it would totally take over my life. The past twelve months has been quite a journey – I’ve travelled across the world to Chicago, Copenhagen, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Paris in search of great eats, ventured to new places in London which have restored my faith in the local food scene, and escaped to far away lands from behind the stove, in the comfort of my own home.

On the downside I’ve had a lot less sleep (those posts don’t write themselves!) and my clothes feel far more snug than they did last summer, what with the ardent dining-out, culinary escapades abroad, and extra experimentation in the kitchen.

A bonus that I hadn’t expected is all the great people I’ve met in the process, both virtually and in real life. There’s the wonderful twitter folk who provide daily banter and amusement, the lovelies who take time to comment on my posts and brighten my day, the enthuisiastic lot who fill my foodbuzz inbox with a bevy of recipes, and my overseas foodie exchange friends who educate me with the edible treats they send my way.

Thanks everyone – it’s been a fabulous first year. x
