A bit about me

Hey, I’m Lindsay.

I live in Clapham, in south-west London, with my girlfriend and two friends. The main thing you need to know about me though is that I’m pretty obsessed with food.

I started this little blog back in 2014 as I wanted a space where I could share my love of food with anyone who cared. I never really expected anyone to read it, let alone share and actually make my recipes. It’s a lovely thing to know that people are in fact making my food, and it’s probably this factor that has spurred me on to continue creating new and exciting recipes ever since.

If I’m not cooking then I’m probably out eating somewhere, watching something foodie on TV, thinking about a new recipe, or boring my girlfriend with “fun” food facts that she probably doesn’t really care about.

I guess it’s fair to say that I have a slight obsession, and I’m okay with that.

I hope you are too, and that you enjoy my blog x

    I would like to leave a comment.

    Is there enough food so that there can be one for me, and one for the king?

    If you could get back to me, it’s urgent.

    Nice blog.

    Hi Lindsay, just a little note to say hello. I enjoyed reading your little bio and although I am a lot older than you I can still remember my nan cooking and wish I had asked her a lot more than I did. So glad you share her passion and hope your cooking career takes you where you want to go. Found you because of your Risotto on Twitter, it’s always been a favourite of mine and love trying new flavours. Thank you!

      Thank you so much for the lovely message. I too wish I’d asked a lot more questions as I’m pretty certain there are a few secret ingredients in many of her dishes that no one knows about! Risotto is a favourite of mine too. In fact I think I eat it too much! Thank you for taking the time to write to me.

    I too became food obsessed by waitressing during my uni years (still ongoing)! I believe you can learn so much by just watching cooks, being around food and inspiring role models (for you and I both: family) good luck with everything Lindsay!!

    Lovely bio, Lindsay, very exciting and inspiring. I started my food blog in August last year because I have a rather boring day-job and I wanted to focus on my creative passions outside of work, one of which is food. I absolutely love cooking, eating, taking photos of food and writing up detailed and intricate reviews on my findings and discoveries. However, I think my site lacks recipes so this is something I aim to rectify!
    I too am unsure of my exact career path, but hope that my food blog can help me figure this out. I wish you all the very best in your future endeavours.

    P.s. love the dinner party catering idea, very brave and I admire that!

      Hey Sophie, apologies for the late reply! I’ve been having a little blogging break recently due to lots of different things happening. I agree and food blogging is such a great way to explore that creativity! I’ve been over to your website too (a few times actually) and it’s great – keep it up πŸ™‚ xx

    Hi Lindsay,

    You’ve got a great blog and some lovely recipes, good to see you’re getting back into it, blogs are definitely a fantastic creative outlet, I’ve learned a lot through the work on mine.

    I used to live in Surbiton and also worked in Twickenham for 8 years until February, but now I’ve moved much more central into London there and couldn’t be happier, if you can get back in, do it!
