Introduce myself.Give thoughts and set basis for session
Read this from Jancis –She wrote this in an FT article and on her website. Then went on to discuss inovative ways of food and wine matching …. So didn’t solve the issue entirely
So far wine resources are not nearly as visited as travel or food on-lineWe need to change that with more innovative ways of communications
Very important to convey accurate information – especially when dealing with all 3 subjects e.g. my forte is wine, sometimes I feel ignorant when writing about food and travel – have to double check before hitting publish.Don’t alienate – again something Jancis brought up – so important.

Travel, Food and Wine in Context“When, long ago, I wrote for the London SundayTimes, I used to say I wanted to be the goodtimes correspondent. My argument was thatalthough the papers writers tended to havespecialities - wine, food and travel among them -readers in fact tend to experience all of theseparticular pleasures of life together, so wouldntit be a good idea to have someone writing aboutall three in one glorious integrated amalgam?”Jancis Robinson MW – www.jancisrobinson.com
