- a blog about food and value

It’s goodbye from me!

1081636_good_luckSadly this my last post – boo! I have recently taken on a full-time job on top of my usual art conservation and freelance writing so my work load is full to capacity which means that I can no longer contribute to this awesome site – sniff sniff!

It’s a sad ol’ affair because I have really enjoyed writing about my foodie goings-on and have loved the banter back and forth from you lovely people.

It’s going to be weird not lashing out my camera every time I have a meal and swanning about the place judging restaurants but it’s time to hang up my Cheapeats hat.

Thanks Peter and Jean for giving me a forum for my food facts and fantasies. You are complete legends and I know this site will just get bigger and better. I couldn’t think of a suitable picture that sums up my time with the site so hopefully this wacky picture will do – it’s been a two thumbs up experience. Thanks dudes.


  1. I have never before left a message on cheapeats but check it out most days. I have always enjoyed your posts and a lot of your recipes have encouraged me to be a little more adventureous. Thank you and good luck with the new job.

  2. Thanks Rercy for all your hard work. I really loved your recipes and I know our readers did too. We’ll really, really miss you on the site but we’ll still see you in real life. The very best of luck in the new job 🙂

  3. Oh god, mixed emotions! Happy about your job but sad you are leaving the site for now. Best of luck and hopefully you might pop up with the odd guest post.

  4. Best of luck with the new job, Rercy. Good luck to Peter & Jean too, taking up the slack! 🙂

  5. Best of luck Rercy – we will miss your posts but hope the new job goes really well. Bonne chance!

  6. Best of luck and laughter in the new venture! 🙂

  7. Best of luck in the new job! Thanks for all your work.

  8. Thanks guys – Bon appetit!!

  9. Bye Rercy, and best of luck!

  10. Best of luck and thanks for the amusing and well-written posts!

  11. Thanks so much Rercy, you’ve been absolutely brilliant and we’ll really really miss you.

  12. I wish you all the best in the future Rercy, have really enjoyed reading your posts. Don’t be a stranger. I know you’ll be itching to write back to us esp if you find a particularly good cheap eat. 🙂
