With so many great London food blogs out there to choose from, it’s a challenge to pick our favourites. But here we go, these are the ones that made the cut and the reasons why…
Kimberly started The Little Plantation back in 2014 and we first came across it a year later. The Little Plantation has quickly become one of our go-tos for vegan recipe inspiration. We especially love her Vegan Matcha Coconut Panna Cotta and can’t wait to try her Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Doughnuts (we suggest you hop on over to her site and take a look at the these now!) We’d love to get our hands on some as well as her crockery collection.
Lawyer turned chef, Ed Smith started Rocket & Squash to share recipes (our favourite has to be his Roasted Cauliflower Hummus) and honest restaurant reviews. His writing and wit have earned him the title of ‘Best Online Writer’ at the 2015 Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards and he’s got a book out in May, which we’ve pre-ordered already, naturally.
Izy Hossack may only be 20, but she’s already got a fair few accolades under her belt: guest blogger on Jamie Oliver’s site, author of her own cookbook and a 2014 winner in the Saveur Food Blog Awards. Check out her blog to see her stunning photography and be sure to give her Ricotta Hot Cakes with Honeycomb Butter a try!
The two ladies behind The Curious Pear, writer Meg Abbott and photographer Issy Croke, are ‘a pair of best friends who’ve lived, travelled and eaten together for eleven years’. On their site, they cover everything from food features to restaurant reviews, interviews with celeb foodies to delicious recipes. We particularly love their interviews with the likes of Yotam Ottolenghi, Diana Henry, Anna Jones and Magnus Nilsson and their city guides.
Le Cordon Bleu trained chef, food writer and author, Tess Ward is the woman behind The Yes Chef. Tess has cooked in the kitchens of The River Cottage and The Ritz (she knows her stuff!) We love keeping up with her foodie updates on Instagram and thoroughly recommend her Sweetcorn Fritters with Smashed Avocado and Bacon and Daffodil Juice.
Last but certainly not by any means least, Alex Head, owner and founder of Social Pantry, has a fantastic blog that features not just lovely seasonal recipes but expert top tips for entertaining & dining. With Alex’s fun tips and tricks of the trade that are simple and achievable to recreate at home, Alex is helping take the fear out of entertaining for you and me alike.
