One of my highlights from last year’s FBC was the Canadian stall at the strEAT Party, trying the Canadian produce and meeting Anna Olson. Great experience.

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

My blog is my hobby – I work for the police in Information Management, which can be stressful. My blog keeps me sane! If I could make as much money from blogging, I would seriously consider a switch!im-going-to

What first motivated you to blog and how has blogging changed your life?

Meeting Jac from Tinned Tomatoes and joining the Clandestine Cake Club in Dundee inspired me to start my blog. I have met so many people and had brilliant experiences since, such as being interviewed on stage at the BBC Good Food Show about my blog.

How has meeting other bloggers helped in your own blogging throughout the year?

Meeting other bloggers has been invaluable in terms of learning more about the craft of blogging, ideas for the future and great contacts with foodie companies.Screen Shot 2015-06-08 at 10.17.30


How do you shop for food?

I shop very different now since starting my blog. I look for ingredients that I haven’t used before or think of new ways to use old favourites.

What would your ideal foodie YouTube channel cover? What are your thoughts on vlogging?

My ideal YouTube channel would feature baking, hints and tips and great recipes. I think vlogging is taking over somewhat, but not many bloggers want to put themselves in front of the camera and I don’t think it will expand as much as blogging.

What’s on your wish-list right now?

I would love to travel to North America and experience a culinary road trip!

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

To achieve a successful blog you need to have a brand. Something that stands out as being recognisably you. You can achieve this through goof recipes, high quality photographs, but if the blog looks drab or like any other basic blog, will people remember it?
