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