missfoodwise-regulaysewijn-bkRegula (@MissFoodwise) is a Belgian graphic designer, photographer and blogger. She is the editor of Miss Foodwise, a blog devoted to discovering everything there is to know about British food and culture with a splash of travel. She has a passion for historical British cookery books, kitchenalia and has a weakness for dainty floral tea cups. She enjoys to research the history behind a British dish to find out how it changed over the years and how social history influenced how people ate and how dishes evolved or disappeared completely. She also loves to tell the story visually with the images she creates for every project. Currently she is busy writing her first book about British food and is also photographing and writing for editorial and advertising clients as well as creating new visual identities for food businesses at the graphic design business she shares with her husband.

    I find many unusual recipes in old cook books from different regions in the UK. My mother in law was the first to give me a book with recipes she had used during the war. Some of the ingredients they used would not sound too appetising to food critics today but with people surviving on ration coupons, pigs trotters and pigeon pies would have been a luxury at the time. Although I would not personally wish to eat those dishes I have found an abundance of great recipes which my family have enjoyed over the years.

      Hi Marian,
      It’s a treasure to find books like that, I have two hand written ones. Truly an amazing journey through time!

        They are certainly books to cherish and to pass down through the family. To own two hand written books is even more special.

        I think my granddaughter may follow in your footsteps, she is 13 years old and will not have tea unless it is served in a dainty cup, with saucer. In this day and age I find it very endearing.

        Good luck with the book.

    I am so looking forward to your talk.
    My mother is a British expat in Switzerland and I find so hard to make people understand that British food is good!
    See you in London.
