Hello! On here you can find my recent features from The Herts Advertiser and Welwyn Hatfield Times. They appear in each paper every fortnight and I pop them on here as soon as the paper is out.
My Herts Advertiser column covers St Albans, Harpenden, Redbourn, Radlett, Wheathamstead and the villages, and the Welwyn & Hatfield Times column covers WGC, old Welwyn, Hatfield and villages. You will find things about local farmers, producers, pubs, independent shops, cafes and restaurants. You won’t find anything about big chains as they don’t need any more encouragement! Our local area has FANTASTIC local produce and business so let’s give it our support!
I also post local foodie news such as openings, special events, what’s seasonal, farmer’s markets, festivals etc so let me know if you have any news, and I’ll spread the word.
Everything I write about is because I really like it and want to share the information. No money exchanges hands, although I can be bribed with really good home-made cake.

ABOUT ME: I’m a food writer and book editor. I’m in the Guild of Food Writers. I’ve lived in St Albans for 15 years and often work in London for book publishers such as Bloomsbury, Penguin, Dorling Kindersley, Vermilion and Nourish Books. My first food book Packed! co-written with nutritionist Michelle Lake was published in February 2017 by Nourish Books. It features @80 ideas and recipes for delicious packed lunches/ breakfasts/snacks for adults, each one packed with nutrition. It received 5/5 from the British Association of Nutritional Therapists and in its first week was in the Amazon Top 12 ‘hot’ food book list! Packed has featured in Delicious, Top Sante, Coast, The Guardian and many more fab publications.
You can find me on twitter @thelocalfoodie and on instagram posting with my co-author Michelle @packedwithgoodthings.
I think we are very lucky to have such great independent local restaurants and cafes; Hertfordshire is a great place to live and eat.
