Bite 'N' Write Food Bloggers Conference ~ 19th November 2011

Bite 'n' Write is the first UK food bloggers conference to be held outside London and is taking place on Saturday 19th November 2011 at The Custard Factory in Birmingham…more to the point I am going (yay!). I’m excited to be finally meeting some of my long time blogging friends and the programme for the day looks useful and informative (the goody bag will be an added bonus).

Here is a sneaky peak at the day (please note some elements may change).

10:40am–11:00am Welcome speech (and short speech from Action Against Hunger)
11:00am–12:00noon Food Photography workshop by Craig Fraser from FraserShot
12:00am–1:00pm Indian Banquet Lunch provided by Bipins
1:15pm–1:45pm Promoting your blog using Social Media and SEO by Judith Lewis
1:50pm –2:20pm Finding your blogging voice by Jeanne Horak from Cooksister
2:00pm–2:45pm Cooking demo by Craig McKnight from WeGrowOurOwn/ Chocolate Tasting by Artisan du Chocolat
2:45pm–3:00pm Tea & Coffee, mingle time
3:00pm–3:30pm Recipe Developing and Food Allergies by Charlotte Pike from GoFreeFoods
3:35pm–4:15pm WordPress workshop by James Bolton from Derezzed Media
4:15pm–4:45pm Video Blogging by Ben Frazer from Cupcake Artisan
4:45pm–5:00pm Thank you speech
5:00pm–6:00pm Drinks

I’m particularly looking forward to the photography workshop by Craig Fraser, as this is an area that I know I need to improve. I’m also looking forward to the talk on ‘Finding Your Blogging Voice’ from Jeanne. Her blog CookSister! was one of the first blogs I read and ultimately inspired me to set up Jam and Clotted Cream.

A few of us will be making our way to Jamie’s Italian after the conference for some food and drinks and I’m hoping there will be time to visit Birmingham’s Christmas Market.

There are still tickets available, either for the full day or half day – it would be great to see as many of you as possible. If you are going let me know!


  1. I'm going too and I'm really excited. There isn't a session on there that I'm not excited about! I'm really looking forward to the photography session.

  2. and here's another one wending their way up from Cornwall. Really looking forward to it.

  3. I'm coming too will be lovely to meet you all.

  4. and me .... so excited! Photography session will be very useful, as will the recipe developing ... in fact all of it! And the yummy food!

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
