Read up on some of the best Yorkshire + Leeds food blogs
Since starting EatsLeeds back in April 2016, I’ve enjoyed (and sometimes feared) becoming part of the wonderful, supportive community of bloggers and foodies. I’m pretty shy (Read: completely socially inept) so I’m still working on getting better at actively taking part in the little communities that have built up.
One thing I do do on the regular is read blog posts, articles and recipes from other bloggers. I love following food trends, and seeing whats new and exciting, both locally and around the world.
Reading is also my other biggest passion (besides food). I love to read. Literally, I used to get in trouble at school for reading in class. I’ve been known to get so engrossed in a book That I won’t put in down to walk and end up tripping over something. My amazon wishlist is about a million miles long and second-hand bookshops are my happy place.
Another thing I love to read? The brilliant blogs and recipes from my fellow food bloggers.
Here are some of the Leeds food blogs (+ a few from further afield across Yorkshire) that I regularly read and enjoy, and I think you will too. Not every blog on this list is strictly a food blog, but they do all feature delicious recipes and/or reviews of local venues.
Make sure to bookmark this page, so you can come back and catch up with these Yorkshire food bloggers the next time you fancy a good foodie read.
