Newcastle food blog with lots of craic.
Blogging recipes, restaurant reviews and food events in Newcastle and the North East.
Hi I’m Food Fables‘ Fay, I live in Newcastle (well, Northumberland) and I like to talk about food, a lot, which is why I set up this Newcastle food blog.
I love a good chat about what I’ve eaten, where I’ve eaten, what I’m planning to eat and when. I also like to share how and why I’ve made food and I’m overly interested in what other people eat to the point of semi-social awkwardness.
When the above activities started to take up over 40 per cent of my day I thought it was probably time I started writing things down so that people could opt in or out of the conversation and that’s when I started this blog. I write about the food I cook, what I eat when I go out and all the stuff that is so tightly shoved in my cupboard and fridge that it frequently falls on my head.
I lived in lovely Leeds for five years and visit often, so many of the reviews on Foodfables cover this area, though it’s predominantly a Newcastle blog and concentrates on the local food landscape in and around the North East.
I give my honest opinion when I do reviews and will make it clear if I’m dining at somebody else’s expense because honesty is the best policy and I don’t want anyone to eat something less than lovely because of me.
I’m a journalist and copywriter by day and write for a number of publications on topics including, but not limited to, FOOD. I was born here in the North East and I’m very passionate about the quality of food produced in this area. As a result, writing about the local food scene has become a bit of a speciality, you can find some of my insider tips over at TASTECLUBHQ and Guardian Northerner.
If you have something or somewhere you think I should be eating, get in touch!
