Reviews of products or services

Reviews which feature on this blog are open and honest reviews, expressing how I feel about the product or service in question. If I have been sent a sample of a product or a copy of a book to review, I will state this in the review. I can not guarantee that I will write about every sample that I am sent to review.

Reviews of restaurants and days out

Visits to restaurants and days out elsewhere are funded by myself unless otherwise stated, and the review will be based upon the experience of myself and any guests with me. Prices shown may be approximate, although I will indicate if this is the case. As with product/book reviews, my reviews will be open and honest, regardless of who is paying the bill.

Recipe accreditation

This blog uses a mixture of my own recipes, recipes which are adapted from elsewhere, and recipes which are directly lifted from books and websites.

If a recipe is my own work, then I retain the copyright for it.

An adapted recipe will have at least 2 alterations, and I will give credit and a link to the original recipe or the book in which it appears.

If a recipe is reproduced in its original form, then I will give credit and link to the webpage or book in which it appears. If this is a review copy of a book, I will also state that in the blog entry.
