  2. I must say I thoroughly enjoy your photography. It takes a bit of extra work to stop and take photos while cooking (or to take photos of the items before you’ve gobbled them up:-). All your photos are beautiful. You’ve inspired me to work on my photography!

  3. Wonderful to see a section of a Lyle’s Golden Syrup tin poking out there – a blast from my British childhood. I was always fascinated with the image of the bees coming out of the lion’s stomach and the words that said, “Out of the strong came forth sweetness”. Where do you live that you can buy this Golden Syrup? I can’t find it at all in Vancouver…

    • Perhaps you will need to cross the pond for these beautiful tins:) I’m in Cambridge, so they adorn many shop shelves.
