Welcome to my blog!

It's with a great deal of excitement (and a good bit of trepidation too!) that I start on my blogging adventure.  I'm certainly more at home in the kitchen than in front of the computer but I am looking forward to sharing my passion for food, my creative experiences in the kitchen, my travels and general delights of life with you all.  I'm also looking forward to discovering something about you!  So far my relationship with my readers has been largely a 'one way street' but I do hope that you will leave comments and ask questions here on my blog or by email (there's an 'email me' button on my sidebar). 

In a way this is not an ideal time to start a new project (is there ever such a thing?) as life at my house is pretty much a whirlwind  at the moment with all the activity relating to the recent release of my new book Rowan Bishop's Vegetarian Kitchen as well as preparations for travelling to Europe in a few days.  There are the usual 'what shall I pack??' dilemmas, preparing to settle in house sitters and so on and  numerous newspaper columns to prepare in advance so there's not a dull moment around here!  However, I will do my best to post a few recipes while I'm away and I hope to share some of the highlights of our time in France and Italy  - no doubt there will be new taste sensations to discover as well as old favourites to enjoy again.  It will be wonderful to be able to share it all with you!
