So far 2016 has been EE’s busiest year yet. The feeling that sometimes I am actually running a magazine led me to change the wording slightly in the blog description, dubbing EE a ‘magazine style blog’ and crowning myself (like some sort of dictatorial warlord) Editor. Lauren is Assistant Editor and my guinea pigs are taking job share as interns. But essentially we’re all interns, as we do it for the love of the food and the city/county that we live in.
We’ve been doing all sorts; from foraging in East Devon, making crisp sandwiches, slow roasting lamb shoulders to trying out Ales at The Samuel Jones, experiencing amazing fusion cooking at The Samosa Lady in Ottery St Mary, (featured image) testing out Marco’s at Exeter Airport amongst just a few places that we’ve visited.
Our 10 Questions Interviews have been a stonking success with interviews from Beer Sommelier Ben Richards, Privateer Jerky, Susy Atkins, Julia and Bela from Veg In A Box and Gabriella from The Devon Foodie
The Queen St. Dining quarter is slowly emerging in front of our eyes, and soon it will open with eight amazing restaurants to add to a plethora of eating places to choose from in Exeter and soon it will be an annual highlight for me in September with the Beer and Bacon Festival on Topsham Quay, and Powderham Food Festival shortly after that.
In our immediate midsts, we have a visit to Hanlon’s Brewery bar, further Burts Crisp sandwiches, the public tasting events for the Find A Foodie competition in August, more recipes from Tom Allbrook, a visit to a few new openings in Exeter and whatever else lands in our inbox!
Remember if you have an event that you wish to show off to myself or Lauren, drop us a line on the contact page!
