best to say hello?

I work in a restaurant. It’s an okay sort of place, not much in the way of bells and whistles; there will be no Michelin star forthcoming, but we do knock out a jolly nice leg of lamb. To put it another way, whilst I am not well versed in the arts of shielding celebrities from paparazzi, I am a dab hand at maintaining a smiling demeanour in the face of an insistent complainer who is, when it comes right down to it really only holding out for free chips.

I’m also somewhat fond of cooking. And perhaps overly fond of drinking. I do both with a moderate degree of ability, I’ve even been known to write about it from time to time.

All of which is a very long winded way of saying hello. I was surprised to receive an invitation to write on here, and not a little pleased; and also not a little unsure as to what to actually write, but I thought it’d be polite to say hello first. So, anyway, hi. I’m Matt.

Matt Fallaize.
