Hallo, Grüß Gott, buongiorno, bonjour and “g’day”.

It’s your old pal Kit (Christof) Fennessy here, just returned from a month long tour of the Alps. I hope (plan) to give each city we visited a review, and pass on any eating tips or associated recipes I gleaned over the coming weeks, as we work our way through winter here.

I've been writing this blog with your help for nine years, and there's over a hundred recipes, restaurant reviews of Australia and around the world, and general gourmet articles in these pages for you to fritter away your idle hours. I hope you enjoy it, and please send me any feedback or suggestions about what you'd like to see herein through the feedback link at the bottom of posts.

Want to know more about me? Friend me on facebook, follow me on twitter, or even look me up on linkedin! (or just read this, and you'll get a pretty good idea, really...)

A big thank you, as always, to my sponsors at Blue Vapours (use them for all your design and advertising needs - we've just returned and are waiting for your call!).

Now, what's on the bill of fare today?

In view of this breach of trust, you have me while my video uploads. So we return to the chronicles, and the fabled Spanish monastic town of New Norcia:
