I’m Victoria and welcome to my blog.
Since I can remember I’ve been encouraged by my nearest and dearest to use my ‘talents’ and share more widely my enthusiasm for all things foodie. As yet this has gone unexplored.
When I reached a significant birthday (30 + 10), I took the plunge and signed up for an introduction to food writing course.
Much of my day job is spent writing – copy for leaflets, brochures and annual reports etc but I’ve never applied this experience to my main passion. So here I am.
I’m based down in SE London – Crystal Palace to be exact. I blooming love this part of London. We’ve got a brilliant weekly food market, independent food shops, supper clubs, tons of great bars and restaurants and even a permanent food truck. Awesome.
Much of my blogging will be based here and locally – Brixton, Dulwich, Sydenham and Balham.
I work in Covent Garden and have friends dotted all over the city so expect to see me popping up all over the place. Have contactless – will travel.
I like gin. A lot. Hurrah for its meteoric rise to stardom. You’ll find me in some ‘Mother’s Ruin’ dens for sure.
Afternoon tea is another favourite – I’ve done plenty – some good, some shocking, cheap and pricey. Plenty more to try and share with you.
I hope too that there’ll be a bit of travel further afield so look out for some musings from a few more exotic locations.
This is going to be a bit of trial and error – so as I go along tell me what you think. Need a recommendation or stuck for a venue – try me. I’m a bit like a culinary Rainman.
If you’d like me to review somewhere drop me a line. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see a month by month archive.
