Delving Deeper: Chocolate Log Blog moves to Tin and Thyme
Chocolate Log Blog has a new home, here at Tin and Thyme. The world of chocolate is a wonderful place, but it now feels time (geddit?) to move on and explore my other food interests. Chocolate will always remain important to me and will feature frequently on this blog. I shall continue to create and develop vegetarian recipes as I always have done, but they won’t all include chocolate. There will be more of an emphasis on the exciting world of Cornish food and the South West in general, although other areas of the country and world will continue to feature. Whilst the focus of Chocolate Log Blog was, of course, chocolate, it has always been a fairly eclectic mix of sweet and savoury, indulgent and healthy, reviews and outings. I’ll still be mining this vein (geddit?) as I tunnel further into the mother lode of food and unearth all sorts of gems – I can’t wait.
My home county of Cornwall has always been where my heart lies, even when I lived away for many years. Bodmin Moor was my childhood playground with tin mines as playhouses, I wonder how many health and safety rules I contravened? The moor and its minerals are in my bones, literally and metaphorically. The spoil heaps are often adorned with wild thyme, a herb that also grows along the spectacular Cornish coast. Incidentally, thyme is possibly my favourite culinary herb. Tin and Thyme reflects these two influences as well as having obvious food connotations.
I’d like to say a huge and heartfelt thank you to all the supporters, visitors and especially those who have commented: your contributions helped to make Chocolate Log Blog what it was. It has not gone however, just moved on and I do hope you will continue to journey with me into the new territory of Tin and Thyme as I relate Tales from a Cornish Kitchen.
Please bear with me whilst I am settling into this new site. There is still work to be done; the current header is only a temporary one, my old recipe cards no longer function and need to be converted one by one as and when I can find the time and there are various tweaks that need to be made. I couldn’t have done this without the invaluable help of Zoe Corkhill who has managed this move so efficiently. She’s also been rather wonderful in answering the many questions I have about this scary world of WordPress. Thanks also to Helen of Fuss Free Flavours who is hosting my site and has also offered much needed support. Whilst others have helped me along the way, Karen Burns Booth from Lavender and Lovage deserves a special mention.
It would be great to hear what you think of Tin and Thyme: Tales from a Cornish Kitchen.
