The Hangover is Over - Let's Rock and Cook

My Dear Gastronauts,

I am sorry I have not updated the blog. The fact is, over the last couple of months I have been so busy in my attempts to open Floyd’s Brasserie at the Burasari, I've been absolutely thwarted by the charming inefficiency of my colleagues.

I have to apologise for the fact that Burusari have pronounced that Floyds Brasserie was open, and it is in fact not open. It will open in the month of February, or possibly March.

Today has been a better day - I have just bought a Jack Russell puppy, called Florence. Who is in no way related to Milverton Blackfoot. Sometime soon I shall be creating the first Floyd’s Cookery Theatre at Linthwaite; sometime later I shall be hosting the World Gourmet Summit in Singapore at the Grand Hyatt.

Recently, on Antony Worrall Thompson's Saturday cooks, I made a bit of a prick of myself by saying that the food police were a "bunch of spastics". In my words, common parlance in the pub absolutely does not denigrate or vilify disabled people. If I offended, I apologise. On the same programme, I apparently said that celebrity cooks are so up their own bottoms that they do not realise that food should be fun, not a station waiting for a train to arrive to take them to a destination to learn how to cook.

By the way, for my friends from Australia who visited Burasari, who were disappointed and my friends from Singapore who were equally disappointed, I will correct this.

Checkout my bandleader Bill - bill@billpadley.com. Who, by the way, won the Ivor Novello award.

Your comments and your complaints please, at any time, please leave here on my blog.

But listen to me. Food is life, life is food. If you don't like my approach you are welcome to go down to MacDonalds.

Bon Applebite


p.s. I've just had an email from Milverton Blackfoot. He has been arrested under suspicion of money-laundering by the HSB. How can you arrest a man for laundering money, who has none?
