Here are eleven great foodies to follow to keep you in the know about Cambridge’s best bites.
If you’re one of many who have just subscribed to the Cambridge Independent then you’ll have also just discovered your Gourmet Society membership that gives you huge savings on dining out around Cambridge, with some other perks too! For those who feel a bit flummoxed about where to try next then this list is for you.
If you’re easily distracted by stunning photography then be prepared to lose a few hours on Karen Harvey’s blog, I Don’t Like Peas. Even if you do like peas, it’s well worth a look as Karen is an award winning photographer and accomplished writer. In addition to Cambridge reviews you might also come away with a cocktail recipe, travel tip or even a book recommendation.
For those who like the finer things, Jo Christy specialises in afternoon tea, and she adds a bit of travel and some bubbly recommendations to her blog for those out and about in Cambridge.
3. Food Mela
A proper foodies blog with sections titled Indian Recipes, Reviews and Cambridge - it’s a must follow for any Cambridge foodie. There’s also a bit of baking and travel thrown in for good measure.
Before you pour yourself that end-of-the-week tipple take a quick look at what Aoife Maxwell is mixing up on her blog and try something a bit different. Fancy glasses are optional, we hope.
A great reviews resource and one to monitor for various events in the region too - it’s also a great stop off for anyone looking for something international and exciting to whip up in the kitchen.
Cakes and Coffees - one for the millennials and something to keep your eye on for the future.
One of the most comprehensive lists of Cambridge restaurant and cafe reviews, and regularly updated. One to put in your bookmarks and keep an extra eye on.
You’ve probably heard of this one before - lots of reviews with a smattering of what’s going on in Cambridge and some mum stuff too.
A bit of everything - as well as food there’s fashion, travel and fitness to keep you trying new things.
10. My Foodie Days
So a lot of it’s in Italian, but the pictures are incredible and it’s well worth a peruse through Elisa Orani’s twitter and instagram channels.
Not one for mincing words. Maybe one of the most prolific bloggers in the list and a great mix of recipes and honest reviews.
