She Who Eats

Chika is runs this baking blog all the way from Japan, and is even kind enough to translate it into English. Don’t be fooled by its simplicity- the page features epic roundups of the seasonal sweet treats Chica’s been experimenting with over the year, woven into descriptions and photographs of the landscape: a food blogger truly connected to the world around her. 

Follow Chika on Instagram.

A Classic Twist

Zainab of A Classic Twist builds her blog around her community: she’s recently started expanding her recipe repertoire to include savoury dishes as well as sweet, and a handy ‘how-to’ section to build up the confidence of cooks of every ability. And the cooking? You can expect treats such as a Blood Orange Meringue Pie with a Coconut Crust and Hibiscus Madeleines.

Follow Zainab on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Love, Cake

Love, Cake is a simple, stylish site with mouth-watering food photography. How did Sam choose the name for her blog? Her thinking was that “wouldn’t everyone want to receive a letter from Cake signed with love?”. If that isn’t charming enough, her recipes- Hazelnut cake with chocolate sour cream frosting and Creme Brulee Cream Puffs for starters- certainly are.

Follow Samantha Seneviratne on Instagram and Twitter.

The Perfect Loaf

As you might expect, The Perfect Loaf was created out of Italian-born Maurizio’s passion for baking the perfect sourdough at home. His site is highly technical, detailing how to store your sourdough starter and a schedule to allow you to bake at weekends. The recipes, ranging from beginners sourdough to porridge loaves, ensure that there’s a bread to make for everyone.

Follow Maurizio Leo on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

A Pastry Affair

Another interesting name here: one that reveals that Kristin was meant to be an astroparticle physicist before she fell in love with pastry. While she’s found her way back to physics by teaching it to high school students, Kristin’s blog remains dedicated to her delicious affair with pastry and all things sweet. Her vast selection of cookies and bars means you’ll never be stuck for an afternoon pick me up again.

Follow Kristin Rosenau on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

My Baking Addiction

If you’re a complete baking novice and aren’t sure where to start, Jamie’s blog is the place to go. With pages devoted to baking basics, fundamentals and essentials, you’ll be set to tackle her recipes such as gingerbread with salted caramel sauce. Jamie’s also pretty into her cheesecake, recently experimenting with more outrageous forms- Sweet potato cheesecake sounds weird but looks delicious.

Follow Jamie on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Forever Baking

Emma loves baking because there’s endless amounts ‘to do and learn’... us too! She’s currently providing the Nobly office with the ultimate Easter baking inspiration- we’re drooling over her mini Cadbury creme egg brownies and Chocolate Orange hot cross buns! For the rest of the year, Emma’s impressive cupcake recipe collection is sure to tickle your tastebuds.

Follow Emma Richards on Instagram and Twitter.

What Jessica Baked Next

Jessica Creed is a pretty impressive 21 year old- she’s already a professionally trained chef and has had her work used in BBC Good Food magazine, as well as working with prestigious companies such as Fortnum and Mason. Jessica’s love for travel means that many of her recipes have a global flavour- her Tomato parmesan focaccia brings the taste of Tuscany to England, while her Lemon herb rice has Cypriot flavours running through it. We can't wait to see what Jessica does next- definitely one of the most exciting food blogs to follow for 2018.

Follow Jessica Creed on Facebook and Instagram.

Live Well Bake Often

Who couldn’t agree with a motto like Danielle’s? She aims to bring baking to everyone with her blog full of classic crowd-pleasers, believing that “anyone, even beginners, can bake amazing desserts”- and that sharing them with friends and family is the best part. While her recipes like Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies look complicated, her writing is full of reassurances that they’re really a breeze: just what the nervous baker needs to hear.

Follow Danielle on Facebook and Instagram.

Butcher Baker Baby

Butcher Baker Baby is one of the best family food blogs in the UK. It started off in 2007 as a couple’s way of documenting their self-taught cooking journey. Throw in a new house and a baby and you’ve got their current blog: a mixture of life updates (check out their “make eat read go” monthly updates) and recipes. I particularly like Jules’s approach to kids in the kitchen- she’s a huge advocate of getting them in there as much as possible, which shows in her family-friendly recipes and recommendations for children’s treats.

Follow Jules on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

My Darling Lemon Thyme

Trained chef Emma Galloway used to suffer from bad eczema, have a sore tummy and serious headaches. When she had children she discovered that they, and she, had a gluten intolerance- and started My Darling Lemon Thyme as a result. Recent offerings include Gluten-free Pineapple, Lime and Coconut Delicious Puddings and Gluten-free Honey Almond Cake with Pistachios, Strawberries and Hibiscus Rose Syrup. If you’re wondering how to make your favourite sweet treats sans gluten, look no further.

Follow Emma Galloway on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

A Half Baked Idea

Even if you’re not on the hunt for recipes, Livvy Potts’ account of how she started cooking makes her blog worth visiting in itself- it manages to be both heart-rending and funny. If you are in the market for some cooking inspiration, all the better. Livvy’s currently writing a year-long series in which she approaches a new (to her) ingredient every week. If that’s not enough inspiration for you, there’s also a wealth of baked goods to try. I especially like the look of her Bacon Bread.

Follow Livvy Potts on Instagram and Twitter.

Wholly Goodness

Jessica Prescott started Wholly Goodness because she had always wanted to write a cookbook, and thought a blog was a natural stepping stone. Three cookbooks and one baby later, Wholly Goodness is brimming with wholesome vegan baking. We like the look of Jessica’s Vegan Hot Cross Buns for the upcoming Easter Holiday, or the more adventurously named F*ck Yeah Chocolate Tart- it’s sure to taste pretty special with a name like that.

Follow Jessica Prescott on Facebook and Instagram.

Baking Mischief

What was the first thing we noticed when checking out Baking Mischief? Tracy’s archive dedicated to Nerdy Recipes. If you’re looking to bake for the Game of Thrones fan in your life, or perhaps you’re a Star Wars fan in need of an out-of-this-world Frosty Bantha Milk. Elsewhere, Tracy’s created a handy roundup of her best Easy Healthy Recipes for Two, which is sure to be a winner for those not nerdily inclined.

Follow Tracey on Facebook and Instagram.

Eat The Love

Why does Irvin Lin love baking? Because sharing the results is letting people eat your love. If that doesn’t win you over, his recipes certainly will- Mead Poached Pear Galette with Frangipane or Orange Hazelnut Cake anyone? What makes his recipes truly stand out is the sheer beauty of his creations; if you’ve always wondered how to make a properly attractive cookie, look no further.

Follow Irvin Lin on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Baking Bar

Born and bred in Belfast, David’s website is full of delicious baked treats like pumpkin patch cake- complete with miniature icing pumpkins- and gingerbread cookies, as well as a glimpse into Belfast’s foodie scene and reviews of sweet treats.

Follow David on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

She Who Bakes

Britt of She Who Bakes made her first cake from a cake mix. It was, in her own words, “awful,” but kick-started her love of baking and blogging, which she credits for helping to alleviate her depression. These days her recipes are cake mix-free and certainly look more delicious- the approach of Easter is a perfect excuse to try her Creme Egg Cookies or Mini Egg Rocky Roads.

Follow Britt on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Baking Queen 74

Lucy of Baking Queen 74 makes amazing sweet treats such as Chocolate and Mint Aero Bubble Cake, Marshmallow Brownies and Self-Saucing Chocolate Orange Pudding. Their USP? They’re all made in the slow cooker! This, according to Lucy, leaves you to get on with other things at the same time and lessens the risk of burning, not to mention creating puddings that are crisp on the outside and soft on the inside- her recipes are a busy baker’s dream!

Follow Lucy on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The Loopy Whisk

Allergies? The Loopy Whisk is the place to be. Kat has a degree in Chemistry from Oxford and puts her mixing and creating knowledge to good use in catering for those after recipes free from gluten, dairy, egg, soy, nut and refined sugar, as well as vegans and Paelo-diet followers. Phew! We’re particularly taken with her brownie selection- the photos of her Sky High Marshmallow Brownies or her Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies make The Loopy Whisk one of our favourite healthy food blogs. 

Follow Kat on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Bitches Who Brunch

The best thing about creating a list like this is when you find a new favourite food blog: introducing the Bitches Who Brunch, Becca Clara Love and Cori Sue Morris. They tell you “where to brunch, what to wear, and where to party in New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C.” Even if you’re not based in the US, the site’s worth visiting for their hilarious, sometimes savage tales (Worst Brunches of 2017, anyone?) of brunching and boozing.

Follow Bitches Who Brunch on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Brunch Addict

The authors of Brunch Addict have kept themselves anonymous in their quest to review the brunches of Melbourne, allowing us to focus purely on the food. Forget sweet and savoury: this pair take their categorisation of brunch to the next level, offering no less than 13 types of brunch to explore (many of which have their own sub-categories). If that’s not dedication to the art of brunch, we don’t know what is.

Follow Brunch Addict on Instagram and Twitter.

Gals That Brunch

If you’re not US based, check out this site with extreme caution- it’s seriously envy inducing. In 2015, founder Tiffany had just moved to Virginia Beach and hosted a brunch meet-up as a way to meet new people. Today, Gals That Brunch has over 25,000 members across America. The blog records their meetups, reviews brunch spots and also features exercise and fashion tips for the brunching gal.

Follow Gals That Brunch on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Brunches of Boston

Brunches of Boston was born out of necessity: its founder, Alie, couldn’t find extensive, honest information on Boston’s best brunches, so decided to make a resource herself. Today Brunches of Boston also hosts events (that may or may not be brunch-based) around the city- another reason to be envious of those in the States! Check out the blog for fun articles like What Your Brunch Drink of Choice Says About You and 5 Ways to Add Avocado to Your Brunch.

Follow Brunches of Boston on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.


Lovebrunch was created by two Sydney expats dismayed by the German brunch scene. They publish unsponsored (and therefore completely honest) reviews of the best brunches in Germany and beyond. The nicest thing about their website? They only include reviews of brunches they think are good- so it’s positive vibes from here on out.

Follow Lovebrunch on Facebook and Twitter.

Poppy Loves

Ok, so Poppy Loves isn’t strictly a brunch blog- you can also come here for features on other meals of the day, not to mention lifestyle, crafts and culture. However, what Poppy Loves does have is an excellent selection of London’s best “Brekky and Brunch,” which comes complete with gorgeous photography and evocative writing- you’ll feel like you’re hanging out and eating brunch with Poppy herself. Oh, and don't miss her Insta- she's one of the best London food bloggers on Instagram. 

Follow Poppy on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The Worktop

Tina of The Worktop chooses to introduce herself with a picture of her launching a plate of waffles into a red post box- intrigued? So were we! Fortunately, it turns out her recipes live up to that first impression – her food blog is full of recipes that utterly intrigue. We’re desperate to try Magenta Pink Pickled Eggs and Roasted Pumpkin on Toast for unusual yet delicious looking brunch options.

Follow Tina Jui on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Kera Bear Eats

Sydney-based Kera is a barista, and loves to support her fellow hospitality professionals by showcasing their best work (tough job). As well as reviews of brunch spots through Australia, her blog also includes Shorts: speedy, Instagram-friendly posts with bright, fresh photography and a quick musing on whatever’s on the plate in front of her.

Follow Kera Wong on Instagram and Twitter.

Black Girls Who Brunch

Erika’s a pretty impressive woman- she manages to be an attorney and hold down a brunch blog! She launched her site when she became her friends’ go to person for eating out recommendations and realised her knowledge could be put to good use on the web. Erika’s blog has stellar brunch recommendations and reviews for Houston, and for those of us outside of Texas, recipes like Sweet Potato Honey Cornbread- yes please.

Chocolate Journalist

With a job that most people would kill for, Sharon is certainly blessed to be writing about the good stuff day-to-day. We were enthralled reading her take on chocolate flavour trends, finding out that lavender and chai are rising flavours in the chocolate world, the more you know!
She got into the chocolate game after working for a Italian food importer, she discovered craft chocolate. The sweet obsession took hold and eventually, she became a member of the Fine Chocolate Industry Association to crown it all off. Sounds like just desserts to us!

Follow Sharon Terenzi on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Chocolate, Chocolate and More

Starting a blog to bake with your children is pretty sweet, and when that blog involves chocolate, things get a whole lot sweeter!
Our favourite recipe on the blog looks at chocolate caramel monkey bread, a dish truly crafted by the dessert gods. We could think of nothing better than devoting your weekends to making all of the sweet treats listed on their blog.

Follow Chocolate, Chocolate and More on Facebook and Twitter.

The Ultimate Chocolate Blog

Lisabeth on a mission to taste the world’s best chocolate and we think she’s getting pretty close with her blog. She’s an expert on textures, tastes and chocolate percentages, her recent post on unsweetened chocolate was a masterclass in chocolate tasting.
She’s able to blend ingredient analysis with tasting metaphors, absolutely owning what a review of chocolate should be.

Follow Lisabeth on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Mostly About Chocolate

Judith is definitely a jack of all trades, and a master of chocolate. Her recipe for Guittard Chocolate Berry Tary guides you through creating a dessert that will entrance anyone who tastes even a morsel.

Follow Max on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Oh My Goodness Chocolate Desserts

This blog is packed full of chocolatey goodness. Expect to see sweet treats like Reese’s peanut butter hearts, flourless chocolate cake, and Hershey’s chocolate cheesecake, but also a few savoury options like buffalo chicken bites. Vera’s blog does just what it says on the tin -- and that’s no bad thing.

Follow Vera Zecevic on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Ultimate Hot Chocolate

Giselle has a pretty good gig -- travelling the globe in search of the best hot chocolates the world has to offer, and writing about them. Her blog combines tantalising glimpses of some mighty fine hot chocolates along with fun travel photography and great writing. Nice work if you can get it, right?

Follow Giselle on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Chocolate Reviews

Reviewing chocolate is pretty much everyone’s dream job, and Lee McCoyland seems to have snagged it. His blog is chock-full (pun entirely intended) of exhaustive reviews of some of the finest chocolate on the planet. He goes into a level of detail that wine buffs can only dream of, assessing everything from packaging to tempering to mouthfeel and after-taste. Definitely one of the food blogs to follow to gain expert-level knowledge. 

Follow Lee McCroyland on Facebook and Twitter.

Chocablog: The Chocolate Blog

Saying you’re the chocolate blog is a bold claim, but we think Chocablog can justify it. Staffed by a worldwide team of chocophiles, Chocablog is jam-packed with reviews of chocolates from around the world, interviews with some of the biggest name in the chocolate business, and recipes like chocolate palmiers, triple chocolate brownie tart, and banana chocolate chip muffins.

Follow Dom Ramsey on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The Picky Glutton

The Picky Glutton travels around London, anonymously eating, and he writes about it. Simple. What really sets his blog apart from other food bloggers in London is the sheer detail his posts, which can can into the thousands of words, go into. Not to mention the vast range of places he visits, from holes-in-the-wall to fine dining palaces. Definitely one to bookmark and delve into when you’ve got a few hours to spare. 

Follow The Picky Glutton on Instagram and Twitter.

Bitten and Written

Pro sommelier and general vino guru Zeren Wilson writes reviews of some of the best restaurants on the British food scene like Stockport’s Where The Light Gets In, as well as top-notch wines. Bitten and Written’s reviews might not be the longest, but they’re pitch-perfect. Peppered with tantalisingly poetic descriptions and the occasional sarky zinger, Zeren Wilson’s writing is unmissable.

Follow Zeren Wilson on Instagram and Twitter.

The Devon Foodie

This perfectly-coiffed blog is a celebration of all things Devon. Based out in the West Country, Gaby Dyson and her mother delve into the classier side of the Devon restaurant and hotel scene. Think high teas from Paschoe House and tasting menus at Lympstone Manor, which are some of the West Country’s most upmarket establishments, all illustrated with lush photos. Her social presence is no less lavish: we'd go so far as to say that of all the UK food bloggers on Instagram, she's top of the pile!

Follow Gaby Dyson on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Samphire and Salsify

Lavishly illustrated with tantalising photos, Dominic’s blog takes a critical look at some of London’s glitzier restaurants. There’s regular reviews of newly-opened restaurants, along with some forgotten gems, interviews with up-and-coming chefs and restaurateurs, and a fair bit of travel writing. Note that he's also one of our favourite London food bloggers on Instagram. 

Follow Dominic on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Cheese and Biscuits

Don’t let the no-frills aesthetic of Chris Pople’s blog Cheese and Biscuits fool you. It's one of the best food blogs in the UK: he's won awards from Fortnum & Mason and was named as one of the 1000 most influential Londoners four years in a row. I’m a big fan of his thinking that the quality of the mid-range price restaurants is what reveals the quality of a dining scene; it means that his thoughtful, witty reviews cover accessible restaurants as well as luxury ones. My favourite read? His You Decide series, in which readers vote for his next visit: last year was Toby Carvery.

Everybody wants cooking to be fuss-free and with Emily Tan they’ve found their blogger. Her recent recipe for French oven-roast chicken keeps it simple when mixing a lot of veg with chicken.
She’s definitely skilled at writing recipes, and we’ve never been excited to make something as when finding out what goes into her fuss-free dishes.

Keri’s objective for her blog is simple: “Life is short. Food is my favorite.” With words like that we can definitely get behind her no fuss recipes.
Food should be fun to make and Keri’s banana baked oatmeal cups are easy to make and look pretty tasty when munching. What more do you need from delicious food!

Follow Keri Basset on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

My Primrose Hill Kitchen

The name of the game at Anna Francesca’s blog is simple but delicious food that’s easy to prepare, and packs a punch. It’s mostly veggie and often vegan, which is a bonus for those looking to cut down on their animal product intake. Anna’s recipes draw inspiration from across the world: think Indonesian nasi goreng sitting alongside spaghetti with homemade pesto, next to a surprisingly easy boozy pear sorbet.

Lazy Sunday Cooking isn’t just focussed on cooking: the blog features lifestyle and interior inspiration. It’s all photographed beautifully, too – Marta is a professional lifestyle photographer, and she definitely brings her A-game to each and every post.

Ice Cream

Scoop Adventures

For Lindsay, her passion for ice cream comes from visiting her local ice cream stand as a kid.
That passion turned to pursuit when she obtained an ice cream maker, and was able to make the creations she tasted in her childhood. But who gets to taste all these amazing flavours first?

Finding against the stereotypes of her former career, the catch line of her very first blog was “who said that models don’t eat?” And when you read more of her articles you realise this model eats very well!

Follow Aiste Miseviciute-Luxeat on Facebook and Instagram.

London Eater

Kang’s blog London Eater is full of personality, especially when he writes about the luxury restaurants he's been visiting, both around the UK and the world. Reading his recent review of Duck Duck Goose Brixton, you get a sense of the history of the restaurant and what influences are buzzing around on the chef’s palette. Every last element of the dishes Kang eats is discussed in rich detail: roast duck is “snappy, crispy, (with) glass-like skin” and phrases like “delicious layer of melting fat supplying mouth-watering umami” indicate why this is lauded as one of the best food blogs in the UK.

 The Foodaholic is one of our favourite food bloggers of London. We love following Gary’s journey around the world; he’s just come back to London after a trip to Slovenia. His recent post about Valentine’s afternoon tea at The Royal Lancaster hotel really captures the hotel’s magic opulence.

Sprouted Kitchen

Sara from Sprouted Kitchen specialises in recipe development and food photography, a combination which makes for one of the most stylish healthy food blogs around. Our personal favourite is her butternut squash and kale minestra, a dish which although highly technical, is manageably broken down into simple steps.
For her the “intention is to make healthy-ish food that fits into your everyday life, using mostly produce, whole grains, healthy fats, natural sugar alternatives,” and that’s something we can all get down with.

One Man’s Meat

Dublin born and bred, Conor Bofin is a man obsessed with the art of food. Every meal he showcases is truly a sight to salivate over!
When he started his blog One Man's Meat, he saw it as a way to balance his passions of writing, photography and food. He covers a wide variety of meats in his uniquely knowledgeable style, that helps you admire the real craft that goes into creating delectable food. His latest food obsession is Sous Vide (French for “under vacuum”), a method for cooking food in perfect conditions. We were sold after reading the first line of his bio "when I am not working, I like to cook for my family and friends." Wattaguy!

Man Fuel

Going as Youssef, but you can call him Sef or Joe! Joe was originally a lawyer, but took a break from legal work to focus on his love of food, a dream everyone on a empty stomach can relate to.
Stressing that this isn't a health blog, Joe has a firm focus on 'hearty portions' (you'd definitely agree when you see his off-the-bone ribs). But his blog really isn't just meat-inspo, what really ties his blog together is the sheer variety of red and white meats available, its enough to make a uneasy vegetarian lapse into meat-heaven. PS: his blog isn't just for male food bloggers and readers- the name's just an inside joke!

Follow Joe on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Hardcore Carnivore

Jess Pryles is a self styled 'hardcore carnivore' and a definite grill superstar gracing this list- Hardcore Carnivore is one of the top food blogs to follow for any meat lover. She's Australian but has found her spiritual home in Texas BBQ. 
A true BBQ lover, Jess wanted to educate herself about how her meat ended up on the plate. She's now an expert on the essential aspects of cooking methods, the right cuts and the difference between grass and grain fed.These are all crucial to the taste experience, as you'll find when reading her recent recipe on BBQ pork belly burnt ends. Her speciality is beef and her licence is definitely to grill!

Hey Grill Hey

Susie is kind of person you could grill (pun intended) on all things BBQ-related.
Having grown up working in her family's restaurant, her recipes are wholesome and definitely for everyone, her cherry cola BBQ sauce is something everyone needs to try. Fun fact; she also holds a Guinness world record for the longest grilling marathon by a team by grilling consecutively for 34 hours and 35 minutes.

Follow Susie Bulloch on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Barbeque Bible

Steven Raichlen is the world’s top barbecue and grilling authority (he said it and we're taking his five spice recipe as proof). If you're not convinced he wrote the literal 'how-to' book on grilling.
If you're thinking he's a bit grill obsessed, then you’ll soon find he diversified this by having a degree in medieval cooking, perhaps just to find out what people in the Middle Ages might be grilling? Overall, his expertise is in finding the perfect cuts of meat and giving us all a window into how amazing they taste.

Follow Steven Raichlen on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Man Meat BBQ

Man Meat BBQ's mission statement is to “bring people from all walks of life together in the celebration of the joys of cooking over an open flame,” which is our new plan for world peace.
They do this through their blog and podcast, bringing the best of the BBQ world when they record an episode (a recent guest was Adam from This Jew Can Cue). The BBQ they feature is the kind that brings everyone together, messy but always tasty!

Follow Mikey and Amanda Kay on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Barbecue Bros

BBQing with your bros is the best way to live life. Grilling meat to perfection and sharing a beer (or two) really bonds friends.
Reading the bros’ restaurant reviews is a delight: their three perspectives when covering the North Carolina Historic Barbecue Trail are a BBQ lovers dream It’s taken them a few years but they've nearly conquered all 23 restaurants on the list.

Follow Monk, Rudy and Speedy on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.


For Josh, the Meatwave has grown into a full food addiction. Having hosted the blog seasonally for five years, he changes the theme every year and run a real gamut of mainstay meats.
He also shifts focus to the best BBQ sauces, to compliment those tasty meats but he hasn't yet found that perfect ten sauce. When's he's not focussing on his meat obsession, Josh is a daytime web designer but is probably daydreaming about what next to put on his grill!

Follow Josh on Facebook and Twitter.

Slap Yo Daddy

If we were giving out awards for best blog names Slap Yo Daddy BBQ would definitely come tops. But where does the name come from? It's a Southern term for when you eat something you like, you want to go slap somebody, when reading his blog you realise the name definitely fits the food he writes about! Jenga hoisin ribs being our new favourite BBQ dish of his.
The blog is the brainchild of Harry Soo, who started competing in BBQ pitmaster competitions after being inspired by the Hollywood movie 'The Bucket List' to tick off a passion he'd always wanted to follow. Was this dream inspired by an empty stomach? I guess we'll never know.

The Other Cooking Blog

Paul started his blog to learn how to make lentil soup and bake bread, but having achieved that goal pretty quickly, he discovered how much he loved writing about the food he loves.
He also has a passion for photography and it shows in the masterful shots of food that he takes. Looking at his most recent recipe, of home-made dry-cured pork loin showcases his photographic eye and knack for cooking on a level of the expert.

Olive Hummer

Siri Barje of Olive Hummer has a refreshing approach to vegetarian food. The trained chef’s signature dishes usually involve copious amounts of butter, cream and pasta, and absolutely no “freaky diets, detox or bad-conscience juices”. Her joyful approach to cooking- with few measurements and emphasis on adapting to what you have lying around- is both infectious and accessible: a sure winner in our eyes.

Tinned Tomatoes

Funnily enough, tinned tomatoes are not all that Jacqueline Meldrum cooks with. Rather, her blog’s name serves as a reminder to be creative with her recipes. Jacqueline is a vegetarian who cooks for her vegan husband, so the blog features a mixture of recipes from the two disciplines. My favourite post? The Ultimate Sandwich Guide: you’ll never stick for a plain cheese filling again. She's also one of the more popular UK food bloggers on Instagram.

Follow Jacqueline Meldrum on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Veggie Runners

Jayne and Bibi Rodgers are the mother-daughter duo behind Veggie Runners. You’d never guess it, but both are vegetarians and avid runners: they started the blog when Jayne couldn’t find enough information on how to run the 96 (?!) mile West Highland Way on a vegetarian diet. With blog topics reaching from how fermented foods can help runners to the perfect healthy post-run breakfast power up, by way of stories of their (many) marathons (some of which are run together!), it's the perfect place for any plant loving athlete. 

Follow Jayne and Bibi Rodgers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The Flexitarian

Annabelle of The Flexitarian hardly ever eats meat these days and believes that meat-free is the future of food. What we love about her blog is that she chooses not to preach a radical diet change, but instead educate people on how to eat less meat- and if you do, what type of meat you should be looking to buy. Recipes like Slow-Cooker Vegetarian Lasagne show how eating less meat doesn’t give up family favourites- making The Flexitarian a must read for any carnivorous sceptic!

Orgasmic Chef

“Food that’s better than well, you know”: a bold claim? With recipes like Butternut Pumpkin, Onion and Roasted Garlic Thin Crust Pizza, we think that Maureen might actually be onto something. She’s not afraid to share her kitchen mishaps- after all, “what’s more amusing than a cook who thinks she’s clever in the kitchen and then make the biggest, inedible mess ever?”- which makes for the Orgasmic Chef being one of the funniest, down-to-earth blogs on this list.
