Emily the critic
I was born a food critic. Ask my mother and she’s bound to tell you a tale or two about me and food whilst growing up. This hasn’t changed over the years, if anything, I’ve become more discerning. I’ve been lucky enough to eat in some very good restaurants and have often wondered how many of these have spat on my food – if that happens- as I’ve never hesitated in sending back food I didn’t think was right, even argued with a chef on how my gambas should be cooked. We comprised. Quite surprised I haven’t yet been thrown out of anywhere! It doesn’t take a genius to recognise good food and good service, but I have a background in hospitality. This doesn’t make me a professional critic but rather a realistic one with a discerning palate.
