Getting to know me: A video interview with Trusted Places

Recently, Walid from Trusted Places got in touch about doing an interview for The Trusted Places Blog. If you don’t know Trusted Places, you should. It’s is a community based reviewing site that allows you to post reviews, setup your own community of reviewing friends and it indicates people with similar tastes as you which can be really good if you are scouting new bars and restaurants! It has received fantastic acclaim in the press and has been listed in the top 25 UK startups in the Register, the Top 10 British Dotcoms to watch in the Guardian, the 50 Best Travel Websites and website of the week in the Times Online and on and on.

I really like it, I tend to look there for reviews of new places (as well as blogs of course!) and I’ve been a member and user of their site for a while, so, I thought that it might be fun to go down and meet them. Here are the results!

Important ps. My time/money comment followed a discussion about high end restaurants and how I’d love to go to more of them every week. That’s edited out so out of context it sounds worse than it is. So, please don’t worry, I am not impoverished and do treat myself ;-)
It’s a dreadful phrase that seeped in from my project management day job. Sigh.

I like food. I like to make food. Eat food. Photograph food. Write about food. Mainly in London but when I am lucky or organised further afield.

  2. You’re very brave. Put in front of a camera I just blush!
    Great interview. Totally agree with you on the tattie issue. :)

  3. Excellent! You can’t beat a good spud. Or proper Irish black pudding.

    By the way, I was in Cafe Paradiso in Cork last weekend. Heavenly. Of course.

  4. Thanks George!

    Wendy, not brave atall, it’s not as intimidating as you would imagine, and, as you can see, I just ranted, which I do all the time anyway ;-)

    Paddy – Thanks! Spuds, spuds, spuds! Yum, yum, yum!

    I love Café Paradiso too, I was in Cork two weeks ago but never made it there for a meal, disappointingly. It’s pencilled in for my next trip home :-)

  5. Great video – great interview – you’ve given me a couple of tips for my next trip up to London!

    I’ve been a big fan of Trusted Places for over a year – though my blog has kind of pushed it down on my priority list in the last few months – thanks for the reminder!

  6. That was great – your passion clearly shows! I love your accent, too. I’ve become a bit of a fan of Trusted Places lately – a lot of the user reviews are really useful and detailed.

  7. Thanks Kittie! Oh, if you’re coming to London there’s so much to see and do. I am almost envious of someone coming to see all those things fresh for the first time. Although, alot of weekends I am a tourist in London, I love trying new things and there is so much on offer.

    Charmaine, thanks! Lol, re: the accent, I get a hard time for it sometimes but I will never, ever lose it ;-) I find the reviews on TP great and you can always see what else people are reviewing to see if they’re into the same things, super useful.
