I first discovered the pizza when I lived in London in the 1960s, at that time pizzas in England were rare and for me at least The Amalfi Restaurant in Soho a useful discovery.
Here in Thanet I often eat pizza in The Osteria Posillipo Pizzeria in Broadstairs, so I was interested to try Margate’s Great British Pizza Company.
For me the important thing about lunchtime is a good balance of price, quality and speed, my days off are mostly spent book buying and with children to be collected from school it’s a short day.
Obviously after one of our councillors had said on the BBC that this restaurant should be boycotted on socio-political grounds I was very keen to try it.
The picture of my lunch I know will annoy another councillor, who has already complained about me putting photos of my lunch on this blog.
I did manage a quick sketch, not while I was waiting for the pizza as it came very quickly, sorry I didn’t have time for a watercolour, perhaps next time.
Margate is still having its ups and downs, while the effect of the Turner Contemporary is now creeping up the lower High Street, with more of the empty shop buildings returning to use.
A few more pictures which should expand if clicked on, not so many as there would be if I was using my big camera, but I am trying to master the camera on my mobile phone at the moment.
The plan is that this will eventually be a seamless illustrated blog post using only my phone and a folding blue tooth keyboard, eventually.
I have pretty much achieved all of this apart from being able to position where the pictures appear.
The most useful aspect of using the mobile phone camera it that the pictures from it automatically load to my the internet when I go into a wifi hot spot, this means I don’t have to wait for them to upload. The down side of this is the picture file names don’t relate to what the pictures are of, so they wouldn’t be easy to find with a search engine.
here is the video, I don't however know the details.
