Mietek Padowicz is a freelance writer and blogger somewhere to the left of Tony Blair with a keen interest in cookery, Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes, comedy, football, history and politics. Together with my wife Naomi Padowicz, author of the blog Retro Woman Revolution, we form a dynamic duo that forms the up and coming production company "Scurvy Sparrow Productions". We are currently developing an adult oriented cartoon for UK and European consumption.
I do the cooking mostly and my wife does the baking mostly, though we have been known to cross over every so often.... My deli cheesecake for example, is to die for. My cookery G-ds are Ramsay, Roux, the Hairy Bikers Si and Dave, and Oliver; my inspiration is my Grandmother who taught me most of what I didn't know I knew till I needed it.
I of course support Newcastle United, and have softened my Manchester United supporting wife who now supports The Toon as long as they aren't playing Man U. I would venture further to say that she now officially bleeds Black and White, but holds on to Man U. I cannot abide our current ownership but wish the Lads well in all their endeavours.
We are the proud owners of a 2 year old male Chartreuse mad moggy named Wazza, who was given this name for a combination of ball handling skills, the fact that he runs into everything, and love of pies.
ABOUT THIS BLOG
What can you expect from reading this blog? Among other things, a sense of deep fulfilment and oneness of being with all that is knowable, a better class of friends and perhaps a longing to share this with the world.
Still reading? well good for you, clearly you can't be that busy.
What you WILL get besides eye strain from reading this long enough, is a steady stream of Television & Radio, Newcastle United, England, Football, politics, the occasional recipe or gadget recommendation for the kitchen, and music.
Telly plays an important part in our life, as it helps fill the gaps when we can't be bothered to cook something interesting, work on scripts or articles, and of course when Newcastle United or England are not playing. Music is the thing that blots out the rest of the world and sets the mood you need to write or create in the kitchen. Without either, I would be lost and disconnected.
Over time this blog will hope to point you towards all kinds of forbidden fruit and uncover artists you would never have known about. I will obviously recommend acts I like, I prefer to help NE bands over others, but if you're talented and you get to me, I will give you a mention. I don't expect people to agree with me 100% of the time, if you did, who would tell me I'm completely wrong? Please enjoy and spread the word if this has made any sense at all.
