A Taster Menu

The first post. What to say? Something about The Comapny of Fellows, available for Kindle for just 70p, as well as all other eformats at the same price and paperback for £9.99? What about its context? Something about Morse, maybe? Or the history of Oxford?

Well, no. It’s long been my contention that, contrary to Godwin’s Law, all internet conversation ultimately comes round to food. So I thought I’d start with a little tasting menu, based on the food from the book. You may also want to check out the recipe page here.
