Suffolk is my life-long home and I have always felt incredibly lucky to live here. This amazing county is host to such a vast array of history, beauty, wildlife and industry that it is hard not to fall in love with it every day.
We are a county of food producers, artists, musicians, chefs, creatives and entrepeneurs. There is so much to celebrate and that’s exactly why I started this blog.
Sampling Suffolk is a showcase of things to do, places to go and what to eat and drink. Whether you’re a long-stay resident like me or a new visitor there will hopefully be something here to catch your eye and inspire.
After beginning my career as a Teacher; in 2016 I took the leap and followed my passion for local producers and found myself on a sharp learning curve. I made the move from the classroom to coffee and immersed myself in the local food and drink industry before eventually becoming a freelance writer & consultant. Now living the dream in the Suffolk Countryside; growing, cooking and sampling as many foodie treats as I can get my hands on.
The blog is an outlet for my love of writing as well as a place for my musings, to promote the producers and venues I feel so passionately about. It’s my love letter to my home county of Suffolk and a great excuse to get out and get sampling!
I am always open to ideas and inspiration so please leave a comment to suggest places to visit or products to try. I would love to hear from you!
Additionally, I do accept commissions, collaborations or samples from brands which I feel reflect the interests of my readers.

Sampling Suffolk is my own personal blog, written and edited by me. I follow the Bambi school of thought whereby if I don’t have anything nice to say; I won’t say anything at all. My aim is to promote local businesses, venues, producers and industry so you won’t see any gratuitous negativity here!
Sometimes I will be asked to write about a brand, venue or product. If an item has been gifted I will tag the article ‘gifted’ and will never publish a viewpoint I don’t whole-heartedly stand behind.
Some links within the blog are affiliated, which might mean I recieve a small commission if suggested items are purchased by readers. Articles containing these links will always be tagged ‘affiliate.’ I will not recommend products which I personally have not sampled.
