Jo from WellingtonistaREMINDED ME the other day it had been a year since Eat & Greet launched! Funny how sometimes life gets away on you. AT THE TIME I started Eat & Greet IT Was a distraction from a terminal relationship and a fruitless job, and ever since then life has felt like this boulder sized donut rolling down the hill WITH me running behind desperately trying to keep up (and simultaneously trying to eat the crumbs it leaves behind).
I’ve been having a little love affair with Wellington recently. A stark contrast to after i graduated from vic nine years ago and I couldn't wait to get on a plane. I came back after five years away thinking I’d probably move to Auckland... Because, you know, I’d had a taste of ‘big city life’ overseas and Wellington felt a little too dinky. i could remember walking down Cuba Street and knowing pretty much everyone and it was at a ratio of 5:3 - people you wanted to see and people you didn’t want to see. Although maybe that says more about me than it does this city!
When I first met Anton Legg it was just a few days after he had severed his little finger, had it sewn back on and was back in the kitchen. He was a semi-finalist for the Monteith's Beer and Wild Food Challenge after all, and had work to do. That pretty much sums this guy up perfectly.
