My apologies – I didn’t realise Ilva was back – so the roundup will go up later today and hopefully we can get a winner sorted out before we start the next Paper Chef!

I know that the past few months have been difficult for fans of the Paper Chef – I have not paid the event the attention it deserves and despite best intentions when I took it back over I haven’t really delivered. I will keep plugging away at it until the New year and in the season of renewal will revisit how it should all go forward.

I truly appreciate all of your patience and understanding.

I also have the results of the La Censa comparative tasting of grass-fed beef and some insights into jazzing up just about anything – even something as cardboardy as a premade vegetarian burger.
