I’m Bryony: a northern country girl trying to fathom life in the capital, armed with a camera, an over-active imagination and a will to cook. Hobbies include fiction writing, painting, reading, gaming, watching Disney films and playing guitar badly.
I’ve been vegetarian since the age of seven, and have loved baking since I was old enough to hold a spoon. My broader interest in cooking developed later (read: when I went to university and had to fend for myself). I loved cooking for friends and flatmates, and during one of these occasions a friend suggested I started a food blog. I didn’t have any concept of blogging (I have a vivid memory of asking what a blog actually was), and was unconvinced that I’d have much of interest to say – but my flatmate Zosia suggested we write one together, and This Is Uni Food was born. I had a great time with it, and it only increased my love of all things food – as well as leading to me holding editorial and writing roles at both the university magazine and the London Student.
Once we finished university, Zosia and I were no longer living in the same place (or even at the same end of the country a lot of the time), so it became too difficult to co-ordinate. It also felt wrong writing under the title of Uni Food after graduation, so I took the leap and started this website.
Fast forward a few years, and I’m working and writing for Tesco Magazine, and having a fantastic time developing my foodie knowledge and recipe writing skills. I’m living in London with my partner Josh and our two cats, Elora and Fia, and experimenting in the kitchen as much as I can! This site is a documentation of those culinary adventures, with recipes, thoughts and experiences. If there’s anything in particular you’d like to see then please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and I’ll see what I can do!
