Today I am happy to introduce to you my eighth food blogger of the fortnight. I’m really enjoying sharing some of my favourite bloggers with you and in the process also giving myself a reminder to have a good roam around blogs that I love.
Emma is the blogger behind Supper In The Suburbs, another blogger I am glad to have met at River Cottage in September. I have followed the blog for quite a while now and Emma has actually guest posted on my blog previously – remember those lemon thumbprint cookies?? Her blog is a fabulous mixture of all kinds of dishes and desserts with restaurant reviews from London and restaurant tips for places she has visited such as Edinburgh, Nottingham and New York. I highly advise you to pop on and over and have a browse..its worth it I promise! Now over to Emma
Tell us a bit about you and the blog:
I started blogging back in 2011. I can’t believe that that makes my blog almost 6 years old! It started out as a distraction at university. I was living with some people I really didn’t get along with and food became my escape. The more I cooked the more I enjoyed it and I wanted to find like minded people to share my hobby with!
The last 3 years the blog has really taken a turn: I moved to London and have been lucky enough to try out some of London’s finest restaurants, bars and street food. But, the main focus of the blog are still my recipes. I share a combination of cakes and bakes, as well as quick and easy meals that anyone can make at home.
People often tell me I should be doing something with food for a job but I like keeping blogging as my hobby and I certainly don’t intend to start making serious money out of it any time soon. Blogging is still a bit of an escape for me and I have made so many fantastic friends over the last 6 years that it’s become an important part of my life and I know it will be for a long time yet!
Become a part of my little community of readers and I can guarantee tasty recipes, insights into the London food seen and down to earth chatter!
What is your most popular recipe:
My most popular recipe is a bit of a surprising one – Breakfast Detox Smoothie. Ironically the remaining top 10 recipes on the blog are cakes and other naughty treats! I guess my readers need the Detox Smoothie after binging on cake and chocolate.
And what is your personal favourite recipe:
My favourite recipe is probably my Profiterole Celebration Cake. It signifies 3 things: 1.) making one of my best friends smile when I presented the cake to her at work (she had been having a REALLY tough time and cake was most definitely needed, 2.) pride after learning a new skill (choux pastry) and 3.) getting selected to sit in the front row at The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice because the producers wanted to film my cake!!!
This cake to me is a celebration in more ways than one!
