    Hi James
    I’m a food photographer, and would be
    interested in getting some images exhibited.
    I’m based in Farringdon, so maybe we could
    meet up to chat about any synergy (it’s my
    word of the day!)…I think that I am coming
    to one of your Secret Larder evenings, as my
    sister mentioned something about it…

  2. Hi James,

    Love your blog! Great tweeting with you!

    Hi James,
    Read a word or two about you and this supper club phenomenon in the standard. I’m an artist and I have some work that will be amazing to show at your club.
    I’ve emailed you a pdf.
    If your interested email me.
    Hope to hear from you soon,
    Tim 🙂

    Hi James,

    just tried to email you a pdf but your account thinks it’s spam and it bounced.
    Is there another another way of getting you the file?



  5. Congratulations on the achievement! Cheers!!!

  6. The salmon dish looked absolutely divine…I think I’m your newest cuisine fan 😉

    And congrats for the recognition achievement! Your blog is exquisitely clean and exudes waves of positive energy.

    Prosperity & Peace!

    hi james

    i wanted to send you an invite to the new voices launch on 23rd June, alice hart may have already mentioned to you. what’s your address?

  8. I write a food blog from Suffolk and coincidentally we have the same wordpress theme! Is this significant do you think – foodies like Pressrow? I am looking you up because you are (or were – its an old magazine) in the Top 40 bloggers. Well done – and if you ever come to Suffolk I’ll take you out for lunch.

  9. Hi James,
    New to this blogging marlarky but am liking yours.Got massive amounts of Jerusalem artichokes growing so will be making your chorizo, artichoke and anchovy salad. Some of my favorite ingredients, just add a bit of beetroot and I am in heaven.
    I am a sculptural ceramist but am embarking on a new venture: The Walnut Tree Farm Lunch Club to be held in my beautiful home in Suffolk. check out my (very small) blog: http://walnuttreeframlunchclub.blogspot.com
    If you fancy a break from book writing, jump on a train. (1.30 mins from Liverpool st to Diss) and enjoy a long country pre-lunch walk and an even longer lunch in front of a blazing fire.
    Best wishes,

  10. Juliet
