HungryCityHippy is written by me, Jane Cook. I’m a 30-something food & travel enthusiast who loves enjoying everything that life has to offer, but also cares about the world we live in.
By day, I work for a creative communications agency in Cardiff, but in my spare time I love to eat, drink, cook and eat out – so you’ll often find me writing about veggie and organic food, eating a ‘flexitarian‘ diet, and discovering local and sustainable food producers. As a family we couldn’t afford to travel much when I was young, so now I have my own disposable income I love to explore – expect quite a bit of travel content here, too!
I have always been passionate about nature and the environment, so living in an age where the world’s wildlife has now fallen by almost 60% is a tough gig. For that reason you’ll also find me blogging about conservation, eco-tourism, volunteering, reconnecting with nature and much more.
Though it has changed a little over the years, you can also read about who I am and why I blog in this interview with The Guardian which I did back in 2014.
Back in 2014, I picked up two Wales Blog Awards for Best New Blog and Best Food Blog, which was a lovely surprise!
This year (2017) I was shortlisted as a WWF ‘Earth Hour Hero’ for my efforts to raise awareness about green issues via the blog (see here). I ended up being ‘Highly Commended’ and coming second place in my category which was a real honour.
In April 2017 I was shortlisted for ‘Best Green & Eco Blog’ at the UK Blog Awards – I didn’t take home an award but I did get to party like it was 1999, which is always good.
