Playing with language and playing with food

This blog is about language and literature and health and life so today I’m going to share the websites and blogs of three people who improve our mental and physical lives by their brilliant ideas – the first one is Jules Clancy, the second Sarah Wilson and the third a Canadian guy called James Harbeck.

The first two are wonderful young Australian women who have great ideas on things like nutrition and cooking, chocolate and health, and how to save time and have more energy. All three are really good writers. I notice that about Nigella Lawson too – she was a journalist before she was a food presenter and cook book writer, and it really shows. At our house she is popular for a number of reasons, but one of my reasons is that I can curl up on the sofa with one of her cook books for the sheer pleasure of reading her prose.

Reading the prose of the following three people is a joy too.

Jules Clanchy looks like this (photo didn’t paste but you can see it on her website) and has the following to say about herself:

: Ready to discover the secret to quick & easy cooking?
Stonesoup is all about helping YOU become the best cook you can be.
The thing is, you can make delicious, healthy meals without spending hours in the kitchen.
This is her website:

Jules Clancy is a country girl and her recipes are fabulous – easy, quick, nutritious and she makes a feature of vegetables. She makes them really exciting.

Sarah Wilson’s website and blog can be found at http://www.sarahwilson.com.au
This is a quote from her site:
I’m a journalist + TV presenter. I write about how to make life better. If I had a resume it would list the following: editor of Cosmopolitan magazine, host of MasterChef Australia, Sunday Life columnist, host + producer of the Lifestyle YOU channel (under “hobbies” it would say: eating + riding a bike).
I’m on a mission to find ways to make life bigger, more meaningful, nicer, smarter, heartier.

James Harbeck can be found by googling his name or his blog, Sesquiotica. Many of his monologues are on You Tube. The linguistic analysis of seven rude sounds teenagers make is a favourite of mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZY2R_K3NFPo

These three make life richer and funnier and better in so many other ways. Bon appetite!
