#fatmY reports back

hi! that's me eating baby eels above!

welcome to mY thoughts on the various meals i devour. food is mY passion and it has consumed me (the irony). my goal is to build an empire (food related of course) and ultimately, world domination! just kidding, well not about the empire. i want to one day share mY culinary experience with the rest of the world in the form of exciting, delectable consumption and not just for sustenance.

if you don’t like reading then check out mY picture page: minimal reading and minimal effort at #fatmY tumblr

i would love to hear about your food adventures (or anything else you'd like to share with me)! feel free to email me at hello@hashtagfatmY.com

red’s true barbecue

happy birthday tom!!! dum dums donutterie is insane! they helped me make an 8ins personalised giant cro (cronut) and it was incredible. i chose to super size their strawberries and cream cro because it looked the most impressive (pretty). for the record, “cros” or “cronuts” are a new breed of donuts currently tantalising our taste buds here in london! it’s a cross between a croissant and...
