I’m going to keep it simple though.
Lots of my friends are kind enough to read this blog. There’s no way in hell that I would recommend anything here which I wouldn’t recommend to them in person. The thought of a friend spending their hard-earned money on a meal at a rubbish restaurant which I recommended because it was a freebie is the pits.
I work as a freelance writer. Just as magazines I’ve worked on accept freebies, I too am more than happy to look at review products, but retain all editorial freedom.
Thanks to this contact page I’ve been lucky-enough to get involved in brand advisory work, semiotics, food judging and lots, lots more. What a joy! So please don’t hesitate to get in touch: thefoodieat[at]gmail.com
