In the News

I am regularly contacted by the media in Wales to provide insight / expert comment on a variety of topics, including blogging, food and drink trends, and Cardiff’s changing bar and restaurant scene.

Porc Wales

Most recently, I joined Carol Vorderman on BBC Radio Wales to talk about eating out, and Connie Fisher to talk about food blogging and food trends in Cardiff. I have been invited onto Jason Mohammad’s breakfast show to discuss whether different types of alcohol make people feel different emotions, and also to talk about food critic Jay Rayner’s comments about Cardiff food culture.

Recent online articles include:

  • Wales Online – ‘Wales’ top food bloggers tell us their fave places to eat out’

Made it into this month’s @blogosphere_magazine – it’s a big glossy print publication for the “influencer industry” 🙈 They’ve featured a blog I wrote about tackling food waste on their food pages, which is awesome as it means I got a mention for the likes of @penylanpantry @lias_kitchen @olio_ex @dusty_knuckle @getwonkyuk @milgicardiff @pettigrewbakes and a few more of my faves. Even though I’m a digital girl at heart I’ve got to admit it’s quite nice seeing a blog post in print format! Thanks for choosing to feature me, @notsobasiclondon! Find the original piece on the blog 💕 #blogosphere #bloggers #foodblogger #wordsinprint #blogospheremagazine #foodwaste #sustainability #toogoodtogo #blogmag #welshbloggers #foodie
