My name is Alfie and for twenty two years I have nibbled, gnawed, sucked, sampled and savoured just about every item of food put in front of me. Suffice to say that if I am not eating food, i am sure to be eagerly anticipating my next encounter with it.
From September 2009 to July 2012, I studied English Literature at the University of East Anglia in the beautiful city of Norwich. Alongside my studies I worked as a goatherd, a cheesemonger, market holder, sushi chef and most recently pizza chef.
At a time of increasing student fees and decreasing graduate jobs, on arrival into the ‘real world’ I am keen to latch on to a passion of mine and see how far it carries me. This blog will document my first year as a graduant, the food I come across, and my adventures in pursuing food as a career. Welcome to my blog.
