Having spent twenty years in a teaching career I am now taking things a little easier
Having moved to Christchurch, Dorset in 2015 into a house with a kitchen that needed replacing we found ourselves eating out more regularly.
This was the start of my writing, initially with a group of like minded people on Dorset Foodie Family now known as (Dorset Foodie Feed) I still write for them if needed.
I have learnt that not only is this a beautiful place to make your home we really do have lots to celebrate with our local food and drink venues and fantastic small producers.
I am passionate about supporting these local businesses and promoting them whenever I can. Covid has had a huge impact on the hospitality industry and as we slowly get back to some form of normality they will need our custom more than ever. I review food/drink venues and write about small producers, sharing contacts that might help them grow .
When choosing a name for my blog the15milefoodie seemed to fit the bill as I mostly eat within this area and support businesses that buy locally too. Although as time has gone on I have included food/drink from further afield.
I have decided to investigate food a little more, on a personal level and as a menopausal woman lots of things are changing for me and I am convinced diet, exercise and alternative therapies can play its part in alleviating some of the symptoms. So in the coming few months expect to see some new additions to blog. Who knows where it will lead.
