Didn’t get what you really wanted for Christmas, like many of us? Then treat yourselves to something that you do want and deserve. Meandering around Selfridges exchanging less desired gifts, we stumbled upon our new fave toy! A Moleskine Restaurant Journal, ready to be filled in with many future dribble-inducing delectable tales. This is a perfect gift or personal purchase for all us foodie foodsters out there…
Taking photos of your freshly served food on your phone might be the norm now. We certainly hold our hands up to doing it (in a rather large and probably annoying capacity) but tapping in notes on your mobile just looks darn rude to whoever you are in the company of. Wherever you might be, it’s pretty poor etiquette. A more attractive and tolerable alternative would be to jot a note or two in your new little black food book… It is considerably more mysterious to be able to use a pen these days, perhaps wistfully writing witty ditties about food, succulent secrets from chefs, alongside favourite tipples and vintages not to be forgotten on one’s next visit to whichever clandestine or ‘must dine’ establishment you’re devouring in today.
We adore this journal, allowing us to record and savour our edible adventures, sometimes phenomenal, sometimes horrendous! There are convenient sections such as:
– Wish list: We have already filled with where we want to go over the next few months… this will be insatiably ongoing.
– Restaurants: Where you can fill out sections on where the best table might be situated, the dress code, what you ordered and other witty (after a few wines) comments.
– At a glance: This section is great if you are not feeling inclined to engage your brain and just want to jot down a key note.
– Direct from the Chef: Hoping this section helps to give us the ‘cojones’ to ask the chefs, cooks and kitchen chiefs to offer up a tip and secret or two.
Along with other sections for cafes and takeaways etc..
We imagine this will be on many edible outings with us over the next year, as it makes an altogether much more stylish way to scribble notes about our eats and drinks.
