Well now, what use a food blog these days, eh?
Particularly one primarily based around eating out and about at eateries all over the western suburb and then going home and writing about them.
Not much use.
Not much use at all.
Truth is, we’ve been eating extremely well and (mostly) healthily – and I suspect we’re far from alone in that.
So here it is – Consider The Sauce is throwing open its doors to community contributors.
We’d love you out there to send us photos of your socially distanced meals.
Anything goes – burnt toast, a cup of instant noodles, a lavish five-course feast, a backyard barbecue.
Not if you don’t want to or can’t be bothered.
But OTOH feel free to send reviews, recipes, poetry or even reflections on our current situation and how it’s affecting your world – and what you are eating.
We are in utter awe at the passionate, ingenious and brilliant efforts being put in by so many restaurants, cafes and shops all over the west – many of them run by people we know personally – in turbocharged adventures aimed at keeping their businesses going, their staff employed and the rest of us well fed.
I want to order deliveries and/or takeaways from each and every one of them.
But, of course, I can’t do that!
And while my journalistic instincts are to go zipping all over the place gathering snapshots of them in smiling action, even that is not advisable.
So feel free to sing the praises of your favourites by sending pics and words conveying your pleasure on how your fave eateries are rising to the occasion!
Unfortunately, I cannot pay for reader contributions.
And, sure, you can post your pics on your favourite social media platform – but that means they will be seen friends and family and then rapidly buried underneath the daily post flow.
Send them to us and they may be enshrined in perpetuity on the western suburbs’ longest-standing and most widely read food blog.
Depending on response, I will turn contributions into individual stories – or perhaps a weekly or daily digest.
C’mon – show us what you’ve got!
