Sorry all for the lacklustre performance on both XYEats.com and XYDrinks.com, I have been an incredibly busy boy and normal service will resume shortly.
Firstly, my Kickstarter project, kiwi CRAFT, was a success raising over $20,000 on Kickstarter and a little more on top of that from other backers. I just want to say another huge thank you to all of those who supported as well as those of you who helped get the message out! A digital and print to New Zealand Beer is being written at the moment and there is a lot more news in regards this that I will be able to share with you all in the coming months. One of the most exciting developments is that the Yeastie Boys will be brewing a beer to celebrate the release of the book.
The next big thing that has happened is the release of the first issue of Eat NZ Magazine, which if you have not already subscribed to you should now at eatmag.co.nz. Issue One came out at the end of September and can be read here. For those of you who have not year heard about or read Eat NZ Magazine, it is a free monthly e-magazine that gets sent out to subscribers and can be read either as enriched PDF or via ISSUU. Obviously, it is a food magazine! It contains recipes, news, food events, a drinks column and more. If you have any thing that you would like to see in it or would like to contribute yourself please email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are a few other projects on the horizon, I have had a couple of commissions for articles from print and digital magazines and when these are published I will let you all know.
I've also started compiling a mailing list, if you are interested in receiving updates on food, wine and more from me please subscribe!
