Esurientes in The Age!
Thanks to Cin for giving me a heads-up about this article in the Epicure section of The Age newspaper, about the "Foodblog boom" - and featuring details of a few Aussie foodbloggers, including me! (the bottom of Page 2. Access and registration is free, but if you have problems let me know, and I'll email you a copy) You can imagine how excited I was after dragging myself in (late) to work, feeling very much like I wanted to go back home to bed. I'm like a puppy dog now! I'm pleased Aussie foodbloggers have their own article; especially after the mixed-feelings about this article reprinted from The Observer, which appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald a few weeks ago.
Incidentally, I've been meaning to write a post for the last few months now about the name of the blog and what it means. But I keep putting it off, thinking it will take too much time, too much energy, too much....Latin! ...and so I write about a nice cake recipe instead. It is coming, soon. But if you want a sneak preview; the name Esurientes is Latin, and has both culinary and musical connections (just like me).
As for pronunciation, it is: Eh-zoo-ri-ENT-es. Heh! Apologies to many of you who may have gone through the past year pronouncing it differently! I'm sure some of you probably feel like my friend did after discovering Hermione in Harry Potter wasn't pronounced HER-my-own. Not that it really matters to me how you pronounce it; if your'e visiting and enjoying it, that's good enough for me!
PS - And I wish I looked like the model pictured on the cover. Surrounded by a laptop and a lobster, writing a post by the kitchen sink. Yes, that's how it is around here. Hah! :-)
