Participant blogging cooks quietly preparing final posts

 0 Comments- Add comment Written on 29-May-2008 by londontube

There's been a worrying quietness from a lot of the participating cooks over the past few days which I can only hope is due to concentration on their final blog posts, photos and videos.

However there's been A LOT of activity from The Avocadolls, Team 5, Team Cleavage call them what you like but the amazing L J Rich and Genevieve Ross aka Burlesque Blogger Tiara Diamond have edited their YouTube video and here's a sneak peek

Also Mr Tom Reynolds our absolute favourite blogging ambulance driver with a book has some rather errr... interesting captions and titles to his nom nom nom pictures. His and Sam's - Team 4 Nom Nom Nom page is also live now.

All being well and fingers well and truly crossed the voting will open for all participants tomorrow ... gulp!

Nom Nom Nom was on BBC Radio 5 and is now a podcast

 1 Comment- Add comment Written on 28-May-2008 by londontube

On Tuesday in the wee small hours of the morning the cooks and organisers of Nom Nom Nom were broadcast on BBC Radio 5 as part of Rhod Sharp's award winning show.

If you're not familiar with the show it's described as: "The week's news as seen by bloggers, podcasters and citizen journalists. Every Tuesday, as part of the Up All Night programme, BBC Radio 5 live takes a look at world events from the perspective of the online community."

The lovely Jamillah joined us on Sunday and as the Pods and Blogs Producer Chris Vallance said "Are bloggers all mouth and no spatula's? The Nom Nom Nom competition invited bloggers to indulge in a MasterChef style, Olympian contest of gastronomy. Well Jamillah Knowles was amongst those deliberating, cogitating and digesting and began by talking to organisers Mecca & Ros who runs the Cookery School that was over run by the blogging chefs".

You can download the podcast here - it's about a third of the way (11 mins) in to the show. Thanks to Chris & Jamillah for this broadcast, it great to get the word out in such a comprehensive way.

And in other news James Bridle's and Ed Arthur's entry is up on this site so you can see the recipe for their Nettle Soup, Scotched Eggs and Grandma's Trifle - public voting will open in a few days time so watch this space.

Blog while the rain falls

 0 Comments- Add comment Written on 26-May-2008 by londontube

Looks like this vile Bank Holiday rain is set for the rest of today, so it's a good day to do net and web stuff.

Ged and Yumei have been very quick off the mark and have built their page including blog post, video and photos so are well prepared for when the public online vote opens on later this week. So if you're a participant you might want to use their page as some inspiration. Anyone else can see it as an early peek of what happened on the day - particularly from someone who really doesn't consider themselves a cook at all!

Ged wrote: "Behind an innocent-looking blue door and down a set of steps to a shiny gleaming version of my own personal room 101. Inside the room looked like an impromptu Apple store with the ubiquitous MacBook Pro, a bevy of Nikon DSLRs and a HD capable video camera with tripods and additional lens. ....... Its around about this time that I start to feel very out of my depth. We laid out our ingredients and after a quick pep talk about avoiding stabbing people with sharp knives by the organisers and then it was a relaxed take off from the starting line."

The Flickr html badge is a nice way of showing a random selection of photos as Ged and Yumei have done on the left hand side of their page.

Plus we wanted to say thanks to everyone who's been twittering and Facebook'ing about Nom Nom Nom as it certainly helped to create a load of interest about the event before voting has even opened.

The image above showed Mex's most recent Facebook Friends updates mentioning

Thanks all and just give us a shout if you've got any questions or queries - we're sure you will have :-)


PS Warriorgrrl our wonderful official red haired camera lady is going to run a 10K today in the rain - so she needs loads of support. If you feel like sending her a cheerful message and a quid or two on her sponsorship page I'm sure it would make splashing through the puddles for dogs and cats while it's raining cats and dogs even more enjoyable for her.

What's been the most viewed photo so far?

Food 2.0 Nom Nom Nom is about fun and food. It's about the internet and food. It's about geeks and food. It's about being passionate about your food and showing that passion through words, photography, film and thoughts. So what would represent all of that in the best way?

The three pictures below have all had over 100 views in Flickr since this site went live. Have a go at putting them in order of popularity and try not to cheat by looking them up in Flickr first

Good luck!

They came, they cooked, they videoed .......

24 bloggers, foodies, reviewers, photographers, cooks, non cooks and most of all fun & interesting guys and gals got together at the Cookery School on the 18th May 2008 to share their love of food in an interactive version of MasterChef or a blogger's cook-off. But it's all only just started, over the next week and a bit, they'll be uploading photos, videos and adding blog posts to record their day. Then it's YOUR chance to vote for who gave you the best online experience.

You'll see the cooks adding more & more pictures to the Flickr photo stream on the left. In the meantime Whatleydude from GO TEAM SIX shot some fab "live" videos of the day and you can see them below. Later on I'm sure the cooks will be adding more edited videos, but his "live-ish-nearly" work together with the Flickr stream give you an early idea of what went on.
