Off round the world!

I won't be cooking for many weeks, so what do I do with my baking blog?! I am off round the world, first stop Hong Kong. Hope you enjoy some of my culinary blogs from hotels, restaurants and first off, Cathay pacific airline.

Starter

First time travelling with Cathay and I have to say impressed- I think the level of service it is how British Airways used to be! It is hard (impossible) to get airline food which wows and depending on the length and time of flight, I often think it is a good idea to pass. For the purposes of review though, I said yes.

The main course looked like a dog's dinner so no photo.

The cheese dish (below) would have been better if it had been out of the fridge longer. Comment like this remind me that Chinese don't 'do' dairy but when I felt the temperature of my clothes when unpacking at my hotel I realise the hold in the plane was sub zero, along with the cheese!

This was a mushroom crêp, one of the breakfast options, which I only sampled. Coffee was good and enough in preparation for landing, immigration, luggage collection and hotel transfer!

Promise to follow this better restaurant reviews.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
