The Food Shortlist will be back in early summer (due to a high volume of editorial work coming in, we just haven’t had the time needed to dedicate to the blog – our sister beauty blog The Beauty Shortlist has been very greedy and taking up  a big chunk of time lately and rather unexpectedly, with the first ever Beauty Shortlist Awards 2012 coming up in April).

So we’ll be posting occasional food news as mini hors d’oeuvres on The Food Shortlist over the next few weeks, and be back, just in time for a very British summer, soon!

PS: This seriously summery montage of fruit, cream and French deliciousness is an Eric Lanlard  masterpiece (photo courtesy of Channel 4 Food). Feeling inspired? The recipe for his Genoise sponge cake with summer berries is HERE
