A little about me.

I’m a food blogger and journalist from Rugby in Warwickshire. For my day job, I write for newspapers and magazines about everything from breaking news to food as well as working as a PR consultant advising small businesses on how to tell their stories and how to deal with journalists.

As a long-time lover of food and someone who loves words, a food blog seemed to make perfect sense. I had dabbled with blogging on and off but in 2014/15 I decided to throw some time and effort at Eat with Ellen.

Where it began...

What started as a little piece of the internet to share my thoughts and document our meals at restaurants around the UK and beyond went on to win Best Food Blog at the Midlands Food Drink and Hospitality Awards.

Since then I have worked with local businesses as well as major brands but most importantly have continued to share my recommendations and support local businesses.

The COVID pandemic has seen my blog become a resource for people - helping them choose what to buy and telling them how they can support businesses, giving a much-needed boost to the sector I love that has struggled so much.

Food is a huge part of my life.

As well as blogging about it, I appear regularly on BBC radio, I’m a judge at the Great Taste Awards, and promote my local food and drink scene by working with organisations like Visit Coventry.

My blog has brought me some amazing opportunities, from foraging for mushrooms with Glynn Purnell to visiting wonderful restaurants or trying great food and drink. It brings together my profession and my passion all in one place and is the product of hard work, love and collaboration with like-minded people.
