WORDS BY BETH - PHOTOS BY ALAN WADDINGHAM & GIANPAOLO GRAZIOLI
So I guess this is sort of embarrassing, I interviewed Gianpaolo well over 8 months ago, and there have been a few comments recently along the lines of ‘too much eating Beth, not enough greeting’. Yeah yeah, ok Fair call, but it's been some good eating the last few months (Loretta, what up!). So maybe some of you will be surprised by this, but Eat & Greet does not make any money (I get asked this all the time), it’s purely for the love of it. Which I really do...love it.
Friend crushes… I’ve had a few. But it is easy when I meet so many amazing people as a result of this blog. I mean, these are my type of people - we can talk about our crushes on David Chang, how we are desperate to eat at Noma or bitch about how there is NO RAMEN SHOP IN WELLINGTON. I love it, I’m finally home, these people get me.
As mentioned in this week's story on Garage Project I was a judge of the bake-off at their Pie vs Cake night. It was an enormous amount of fun, and by enormous I mean the enormous pair of trackpants that are the only thing I can fit in to after feasting on 19 different cakes and pies, along with Garage Project's Ziggy's Carrot Cake Ale and newcomer Pecan Pie Ale.
