  1. Ah welcome back ‘Food Links’ – it’s been too long… I’ve missed it! And many thanks for including my Guardian WOM ‘authenticity’ piece in your round-up. I wrote it many months ago (and have had new ideas and angles since). The original version was quite dense with many more ideas packed in, so we tweaked it at the last minute to simplify the debate (or make it more manageable). I could probably write a book on the topic really…

    Hope you’ve enjoyed your recent travels!

    • Thanks! It’s lovely to be back, and I had an absolutely amazing time in Australia.

      And you’re welcome: I loved your piece. I wish you would turn it into a book: it’s such an interesting, and important, idea.

  2. How come it’s taken me this long to discover your blog. Have spent a chilly Melbourne afternoon clicking the links in this post alone! Great work.
