It’s working again! For some reason, I haven’t been able to get into my blog for months, but I just tried again and I have succeeded!
I have wanted to write this particular post for a while, as it represents social media at its best. Social media gets a lot of bad press – often rightly so – but it has many advantages. For me, this was exemplified about 18 months ago now when my friend and I received a Facebook message from a couple of old school friends whom we hadn’t seen for 8 years. “Hello fellow foodies!” was how the message began. Apparently my excessive food-related content on social media had caught their eye and led them to get in touch. Since then, we have together enjoyed many food-centred catch-ups, one of the most memorable of which being at Hawksmoor. Although we initially intended to experience one of their famous breakfasts in Guildhall, tricky scheduling meant that this wasn’t possible, and so we settled instead for lunch in their Seven Dials branch.
