The Roundup – January 2019

It’s been a few months since we featured a review roundup, like our ever stalling weather, write ups are as thin on the ground as the snow. At this time of the year food writers are typically more concerned with adding a few layers of Winter blubber, than writing about this and that. I can say this of course because I know first hand of the fight capitulation against the gravy and stuffing.

Anyway, a new year and all that, so we’re back in business. Here’s the run down of every review, write up, podcast and more from the past few months. Dig into 2019 informed and more hungry than ever…
