Thank-you, arigatou, merci, danke, gracias, terimah kasih, obrigado

Hello everyone!

Yes, my project is over, and I would like to take the opportunity to thank some people who helped me out along the way.

Firstly, of course, is Nigella - for writing a wonderful book, full of great recipes and engaging prose. It was definitely worth it for me to devote a year of my life to cooking out of this book.

I have to give a special mention to the good folks at Rendinas butchery - the best beef in Balwyn!

I would also like to thank all my friends who have sampled my cooking throughout the year - especially Markii, Uncle Mike & Aunty Helen, Frances, Georgina, Adriana, An, Bonnie and Liam.

And of course there is everyone who has been keeping up with my blog and leaving me messages of encouragement - including, but not limited to Ilana, Lisa, Annauk, Randi, Niki, Gemma, Lotta, Julie, Meg, Snowdrop, Spot, Kirstendk, Rachelak, Foodcrazee, and Ange.

I'd like to especially thank my good friend DG, for hours of culinary discussion, encouragement, advice and general late night chats and e-mails to help me throughout this project.

Most importantly, I have to say thank-you to my family - Mum, Dad and Daniel - who have always supported and encouraged me, and without whom there would be no reason to cook.

Thank-you and goodnight!

Once again congratulations on a job well done. I'm sure the question on everyones lips now is what will you do with yourself now that its all over, a new project perhaps or is the world of food blooging all over for Sarah?

Congratulations! Thank you Sarah for a fabulous year of wonderful posts and pictures. Maybe you'll get to go on tour with Nigella... you know, like "Sarah did it, so you can too!" =)

You're welcome! Loved reading your blog and I'm feeling a bit lost without it. For your next project (!) here is 'thank you' in another language - scottish gaelic - 'tapaidh leibh' so your heading next time will be even more cosmopolitan!

oh wow - I can't believe I never posted on this one! lol!

Umm - thanks for letting me eat your wonderful cooking. The project has inspired me somewhat to cook more interesting things that I wouldn't have done otherwise. So yeah, thanks to you too! :D

And if you're even in need of a dinner guest who brings nice wine, you know who to call.. ;)
