I am a baking, cooking, gardening and foraging fiend, proudly living in Lancashire. I have had a life long interest in good food and one of my earliest recollections is standing on a stool at my Nanna's kitchen and learning to rub in pastry. 

I have a huge collection of cookery and food books and read avidly around the subject and also enjoy visiting food fairs, festivals and demonstrations. Eating out is another passion.

Here are the high points of my foody career so far:-

I do write reviews and sponsored posts, if I feel they are right for Lancashire Food and the blog, Above all though I want to be true to Lancashire Food.

Reviews will be my honest opinions based on samples provided for me to test and work with or to develop recipes.

I am happy to include appropriate links to relevant sites or other information in my post for the benefit of my readers and include photographs, either ones taken by me or stock photos provided to me. Reviews and sponsored posts are clearly marked as such as I believe in being honest with my readers.

I am not usually paid to write reviews, but would be agreeable to discuss a fee being paid to cover my time if this appropriate. I retain full editorial control over the content of these posts, and reserve the right to remove the post if I feel this is appropriate.

I will only mention competitions or campaigns in my blog post unless I am specifically writing about that subject matter. I am not interested in writing a post just to be entered into a competition.

And please don’t ask me to write a sponsored post without making it know it sponsored, as I will say no.

I have a media pack available about my blog which includes advertising rates, which can be obtained by emailing me.
