Yet once I'd eaten one, I immediately asked if I could write about the recipe once the book was out. There's something really lovely - sort of nutty, but hard to describe - about the flavour and the slightly nubby texture is wonderful.
I was recently asked to work with the Stella team at The Telegraph to put together a piece on How to Start a Food Blog. I thought it'd be good to elaborate a bit here and share some of the general blogging statistics from my surveys.
I like mine with very crispy streaky bacon, some banana or strawberries and lashings of maple syrup. I've also recently discovered the purer pleasure of a bit of salted butter melted over the top with some maple syrup. What do you like with your waffles?
It got me thinking about recipe language and how the words convey a meaning that can be converted into action. How I can write an instruction and hope and expect that anyone will be able to replicate my movements and technique just from seeing that word.
