Laura-howtocook-HeadshotAs a returning FBC Alumni, what are you looking forward to learning and enjoying at FBC this year?

I like to catch up with blogging friends and also to be inspired by the guest speakers.

Is blogging your full time job? If not, what is your day job?

Blogging for me is part time work. I am also a cookery tutor, supper club host and private chef. I love cooking!

From where do you get inspiration for your blog posts?

I get inspiration from the growing seasons, from reading lots of cookery books and from eating out at the latest restaurants and pop-ups in London.

What’s your signature dish?

This is my passionfruit meringue roulade, a huge hit at my latest supper club

passionfruit-meringue-roulade-whole-close-upAs a returning FBC alumni, have you stayed in touch with any bloggers and industry folk you met at previous FBC’s? 

I have stayed in touch with lots of fellow food bloggers. We like to chat about food, recipes and often share blogging tips.

What’s your idea of food hell?

My idea of food hell is tapioca. I cannot stand the slimy texture!

How many cookbooks do you own? Which cookbook do you return to time and time again?

I own far too many cook books but I love flicking through them, especially my older books. It is always good to look back to the past as well as to be inspired by the future of cooking.

Do you have a favourite kitchen tool or appliance – either a new addition or a trusted old favourite?  

I love my super sharp Global knives. I cannot work with a blunt knife so I often take good knives on holiday with me.

To achieve a successful blog what comes first – the dishes, the styling, the photography or the words?

As much as I would like to say the words of a food blog come first, I do think we live in a generation of very visual internet surfers so I would have to say photography plays the biggest part in a top blogs success. An area I need to improve upon.
