Welcome to my blog. My name is Carole. After 4 months of being furloughed from my job due to Covid-19, if nothing else I have had time to think about what is important in life and what I enjoy the most. Food and wine have been my greatest comforts during lockdown and beyond. Who knows what the future holds but I do know that both those things will feature strongly in my life. Food and wine transform the dreariest day into something amazing and makes the most beautiful day even more beautiful. Some people eat to live and others live to eat. I am in the latter camp.
I’m with George Bernard Shaw when he said “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” I would perhaps add wine onto the end of that as they go together so well.
I’m a Supply Planner by day, foodie and wine student by night. I have always loved food and wine and my passion has been inspired by people I have connected with along the way. I have indulged myself learning about wine and have successfully completed the Wine and Spirits Education Trust’s Level 1, 2 and 3 in wines. After that I had the craziest idea of starting the WSET Diploma. This is a whole other level of work but hey, I love a challenge! :-). My progress has been somewhat interrupted by Covid-19 but I have passed half the exams and I am not giving up!
