One of Britain's most popular and entertaining food blogs is written by Msmarmitelover....she operates The Undergound, a pioneer and leader in the new 'illegal' at-home fine-dining establishments. Msmarmitelover - whom has to stay anonymous so her home-restaurant, in Kilburn, North London, doesn't get busted by the red-tape cops - has written a glowing review (on: http://theenglishcaneat.blogspot.com/2009/11/marmite-stock.html). It reads:
In recent weeks I've been sent two books: The Bumper book of Marmite and The Mish Mash dictionary of Marmite. The first is modelled on a kid's annual. It has comics, games, puzzles and a few recipes. It's bit of a gimmicky book, out for the Christmas market. There was obviously a large budget but I don't know why they bothered. Aside from some good recipes from Signe Johansen, there are weak jokes and pointless artwork. I've bought some really amusing annuals in the past, Monty Python and AliG for instance, but this just doesn't cut it. It's all form and no content. I wouldn't say I hated it, but I don't love it.
The Mish Mash dictionary of Marmite at £8.99 lacks the gloss but is rather more interesting for genuine fans of the brown stuff. For a start, I'm mentioned in it under 'U' for Underground Restaurant! Writer Maggie Hall has put in lots of fascinating anecdotes and has obviously spent time researching the all-important subject of Marmite.
Under 'internet' there are more than 430,000 entries if you google 'Marmite'. Under 'C' you will see that cats love Marmite. Under 'J' for jewellery she mentions Rachel Sherman who sells Marmite jewellery (pictured above) on etsy and her own site. Paul A Young's wonderful marmite and chocolate truffles have an entry under 'Y'. This is to name but a few entries...you could spend hours reading this book...love it!
