Gourmet Food Revolution - Robert Jackson - At Your Service

One of the things I love about the web is the opportunity to become acquainted with kindred souls from around the world. Then sharing that “find” with others through blogging…well it doesn’t get much better. Read on to see where I’m going.

If there ever was an epicurean it’s Robert Jackson from the Regency town of Brighton UK. Before I tell you about Robert’s amazing history, let me ask a few questions. What if you had a friend who was fully trained and degreed in hospitality management? What if this friend was fortunate enough to work in some of the finest hotels and restaurants in the world? What if this friend had served as an officer on the one and only Cunard cruise liner CM2 and had the opportunity to mingle and socialize with royalty, aristocracy and film stars? And what if this friend was willing to draw upon his amazing history and give you hints on entertaining, dinner party planning, simple but delicious recipes, and table etiquette?

Well your friend, Robert Jackson, is waiting for you at Gourmet Food Revolution. From the get go Robert was sure of his destiny as he experimented at age 8 with sweetmeats (candies), toffee, and chocolate Easter eggs. By age 13 he had already completed a Cordon Bleu (culinary arts) home study course and by age 17 he embarked on his formal education in international hotel & catering management.

Employment opportunities took Robert to locations in the UK and overseas, including what he calls his “lucky break” - a chance to work on the QM2. How does one follow the QM2? Robert opened his own small hotel and restaurant on dry land. Now Robert has settled in the South coast of England and has a successful business in Brighton where he consults on butlering, catering and hospitality and maintains the web site for Gourmet-Food-Revolution.

Future Delicious Destinations posts will include tips from Gourmet Food Revolution on planning elegant dinner parties, selecting simple yet delicious menus for your dinner party, recipes from appetizers to desserts, a guide to selecting prepared food suppliers (of course GourmetStation is on the list!), tips on hiring a personal chef, and top 10 do’s and don’t for proper table etiquette.

You might not be able to sip tea with Robert on a sunny afternoon & hear his wonderful stories, but you can certainly visit his informative web site and learn about everything from how to select a prepared meals supplier to properly setting your table. Yes, Robert, I think you Mum would be proud!

What a great story. I'm looking forward to reading Robert's tips and suggestions. Perhaps after a few Delicious Destinations posts Robert will launch a blog of his own!
