I like my food - but I'm not a serious foodie - I like a good restaurant - but don't go out that often.
However, regardless - for me the best section in Saturday's Dominion Post - is always David Burton's latest article. I always skip straight to it - and read the article at least twice - preferably while supping on a nice strong cappuccino. His crisp and precise writing style is always a joy to read.
Dear Mr Editor - please reverse this - a wellington paper should revere the strong local food scene - in extensive detail. There are more cafes and restaurants in Wellington per head of population than...... etc.. etc...
Sir David Burton has also written a book - which I will soon purchase - once I have sold my left kidney.
We also need a few Burton's to sort out some of the sloppiness creeping into some of Wellington's well know and established cafe's and restaurants.
Finally it has to be said - David Burton is a brave man. In one of his articles he actually ate a McDonalds salad - there should be a medal for that type of journalistic sacrifice!
