Last week I put out a call for another foodie blogger to join our humble blog. The competition was fierce as we pitted potential rivals in a battle of wits, physical ability, and creativity as they fought for the coveted place of Third Member of Dining Devon.
OK OK… it wasn’t quite like that. It wasn’t a fight to the death, that was just for dramatic tension as I announce that Sue Stoneman is joining Dining Devon.
Sue is a local foodie legend being the winner of the South West Home Chef of the Year for the past two years running as well as a food festival favourite in the demo tents and on the social medias.
Sue describes herself:
“An enthusiastic home cook from Exmouth, Sue loves to cook for her family (husband who runs a local Exmouth Seafront Hotel and two grown-up boys) and friends.
Her cooking is not confined to her kitchen, she also cooks outdoors on her barbecues and in a wood-fired oven that she built herself. She has a few other cooking titles under her hat including Sticky Toffee Pudding Champion, West Country Baking Champion and has appeared on TV with James Martin.
You can find Sue working at Bigfire at The Shops @ Dartington, occasionally firing up and rustling up tasty treats, demoing at local Food & Drink Festivals and for Taste of Game. She also is a contributor for the UK BBQ Magazine and has previously written restaurant reviews for Crumbs Magazine Devon & The Attraction Press.
She enjoys everything about Devon, walking, cycling, the beach and especially when it comes to food and drink the exploring, cooking, eating and drinking of it! “You can follow Sue on Twitter @Sue_Stoneman and Instagram sue_stoneman
If you’re heading over to QFest this weekend, be sure to catch Sue’s demo 🙂 We look forward to hearing from Sue more in the future and seeing what exciting things she gets up to!
