This is going to be a typical first blog where I tell my non-existent audience that I haven’t a clue what I’m doing with this site and give you a reason for its creation. Aren’t y’all in for a treat!
I have wanted to blog for a while, mostly wanting to blog about restaurants and the food I’ve eaten as those are the kinds of blogs I like! So I decided: give it a bash, and it’ll be fun if nothing else!
My mini profile sums me up absolutely perfectly. I am indeed Scottish, from the Lanarkshire area – it’s nothing special, but it’s home. I work with food, sadly not tasting it for free. I love food. Not in the pompous way, but in the tummy warming obsessive way. I am regularly reminded of how often I dine out; people who know me find it hilarious, and when I’m not dining out I’m talking about what I’m cooking or lusting after.
Before I go to make a cup of tea I’ll explain the name House of Herby. I have a herb garden, and I love when there are fresh herbs in my food – apparently this is amusing to people I know. I think it’s just decent taste. So, I was nicknamed Herbs. Naming my blog was so difficult that I think naming any children I have will be a real ordeal – so I decided on House of Herby. Interesting, I know.
Ah, one more thing: my blog ethos! I’m only going to blog about good experiences. Tony Macaroni has no place in my church of food. I’m not an official food critic and I’m not a name and shame person. I will be completely honest – maybe not 100% satisfied but if a restaurant isn’t good, they won’t feature!
Prepare to be very hungry!
