A genuine delight 

With thanks to Warburtons. 

Little one

A touch al dente but hit the spot when rolled up into a pizza sandwich. 

Hyper 


Moving forwards

Beyond 

Junior portion but looking natty. 

To the max


Nice little crispy one. 

Irvine Welsh – The Blade Artist

Easy to read, silly, bit dark toward the end.  A nostalgic read having first been introduced to these characters 20 years or so ago.  Not crazy about it but enjoyed it none the less, save for some of the ‘artistry’ towards the end.

The Penguin Podcast with Richard E Grant promoting this was ok.

Serious

Looking sharp, though could have been crispier. 


This, however, was killer. 

2017 Starts with a Pizza

100% a great start to the year. Here’s hoping for a mega year of music and pizzas.

L.A. Confidential – James Ellroy

Ripping.  Two cops, one privileged, educated, the other brawn and limited brain.  Really enjoyable but you have to get on board with Ellroy’s style, his voice.  A review of another of Elroy’s books, Perfidia, picks out that Ellroy cranks everything up and leaves it there.  This is cool but can be fatiguing.  Check out this interview with him to get a flavour of this style.

Recommended and I’m now off to start Perfidia and re-watch the LA Confidential movie to see how they sliced up the book to make a comprehensible (and classifiable) movie.

Pizza era 2016 starts here.

The first pizza in a new kitchen. Simple but effective (hopefully).
