Close, but maybe a biscuit.
I was down in London yesterday attending the Academy of Food and Wine Service's annual academy awards. By virtue of me applying for a travel bursary with Kendall-Jackson, I was on tenderhooks waiting to see if I had been successful. As I met up with Robin Tookey from Kendall-Jackson, who was the person who ultimately decided who got the bursary, I found out that I had come a close second. So close in fact that he had decided to try and organise me a runner-up prize. It was good to get such feedback and for a chance to do some networking and meet some previous acquaintances and some new faces. I even got a veiled job offer!! Food for thought.
