The UK’s best food blogs of 2017
The food blog as we know it today has come a long way: what began with sharing recipes on food discussion forums has now evolved into a career in and of itself. Nowadays, social media has allowed food bloggers to make a good living and establish a career for themselves. In fact, food-related media as a whole has enjoyed soaring popularity in recent years.
Food blogs are an excellent way to learn about cuisines and culinary traditions from all around the world, from the comfort of your own home. Keeping up with trends such as the Budvar beer cocktails has never been easier. Expensive cookbooks used to be the best way to get your hands on good recipes, and now, there are countless amounts available at your disposal online. Whether attracting your attention via websites, social media, or even via a well-selected brand ambassador, it’s no struggle to find a food blogger that appeals to your taste. However, to make things easier, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best UK food bloggers.
