it's March already? Damn.

Happy month everyone.  When did March creep on us?  Did I post anything about the amazing eateries in Montreal from my conference trip a few weeks ago?  Of course not.  Have I posted any new recipes, like the risotto pudding I have been working on?  Of course not.  Have I made the tortellini with white truffle oil for my housemates yet?  Of course not.  Have I posted a picture of the really cool tiramisu I made in honour of President Barack Obama for my lab (and it came out so wonderfully tasteful)? Of course not. Have I finished reading my dad's Christmas presents (two amazing books on molecular gastronomy)?  Of course not.  Have I gotten around to testing diabetic versions of baklava?  Of course not.  Have I submitted my spanakopita recipe to Oxfordshire Living yet?  Of course not.  Have I looked into Oxford Slow Food and what events they have this spring?  Of course not. 

Have I emailed the Fat Duck about organizing an event at their restaurant for the Oxford Gastronomy Society for next term?  Of course yes.  Irony is that I emailed them on the day they ended up closing down the restaurant given their food poisoning cases.  Heston Blumenthall again is featured on a video in the Guardian today in an interview with food critic Matthew Fort.

And and it's Ash Monday ('Katharh Deftera) today, first day of Lent in the Greek Orthodox Calendar.  I'm going to go fly a kite with my Greek mates in Oxford this afternoon.
