I read masses of different blogs each week, and pick out some of my favourites to showcase each week in my ‘7 Days, 7 Posts’ series. I usually include a couple of recipes in each week’s selection but it’s so hard to narrow it down to just those two or three.
This is a selection of my favourite food bloggers, and some of their posts which have caught my eye recently. These writers produce excellent content week in week out. I could easily feature their work in ‘7 Days, 7 Posts’ every week!
Elizabeth is an ex-pat Canadian, and quite possibly Britain’s northern-most food blogger – she lives in the Shetland Islands! How she came to be in Shetland is fascinating, it’s worth checking out her About Me page to find out her story. Elizabeth writes one of my absolutely favourite food blogs, and takes beautiful photos of her recipes – I adore her posts.
Ahead of Thyme is written by Sam, who has had a passion for baking since she was 12. Sam writes about all sorts of food, although she points out that she has a lot of vegetarian and chicken recipes on her blog. I love the fresh, light look of her photos, everything looks so appetizing.
Souffle Bombay blogger Sam says that many of her favourite memories have taken place in someone’s kitchen. I think a lot of us can relate to that, I know I can! Sam is aiming to inspire you to step outside of your comfort zone, and try something new. The recipes are always eye-catching, and I’ve seen so many dishes that I’d love to cook up for my family.
I’ve been reading Belleau Kitchen for a few years now, and I definitely couldn’t do a list of food bloggers without including Dom. He lives in Lincolnshire, and local and seasonal product feature heavily in his blog. Dom is famous for his thighs – his chicken thighs, that is – but he also bakes a pretty mean cake as well.
A blog that always seems to come up with mouth-watering treats is Carmela POP, written by former bakery owner Ana. Her blog is full of really pretty cakes and bakes, and Ana says that ‘sprinkles make everything better and that cupcakes totally count as breakfast’. That’s certainly a philosophy I can get behind!
Another food blog I’ve been reading for years is Lavender and Lovage, written by freelance writer and recipe developer Karen. She splits her time between homes in Yorkshire and South-West France, which seems like a pretty idyllic life to me. Lavender and Lovage contains a lot of seasonal and local produce, and Karen also highlights traditional British feasts and festivals.
Celery and Cupcakes isn’t purely about food, but about how food fits into an all-round healthy lifestyle. It’s written by Jemma, a health and wellness writer and recipe developer. Jemma says ‘To me, life should be about doing what makes you feel happy, eating the food that you love and celebrate just being you.’ – I can certainly agree with all of that.
Amuse Your Bouche’s tag line says ‘Simple Vegetarian Recipes’ and that’s exactly what you’ll find there. It’s written by Becca, a cheese-loving vegetarian and is absolutely packed with amazing vegetarian food. It’s really easy to navigate around the site, as the recipes are divided up into mains, sides, light lunches etc. And you can even choose to just see vegan recipes or gluten-free recipes if you wish.
