Sue Stoneman joins the Dining Devon team!

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.

Burts Spicy Chorizo and Chicken Club Sandwich

Writing Eating Exeter exposes me to a wealth of talented chefs and some of the best food that Devon has to offer.  But unlike many food bloggers, I’m actually a little limited in the kitchen.  Tori is my resident cheffy expert (even though she would never admit it) but recently an opportunity appeared for me to try some recipes that were well within my culinary … Continue reading Burts Spicy Chorizo and Chicken Club Sandwich

86 Longbrook St, Exeter EX4 6AP  Tel: 01392 202234  Twitter:@HarrysExeter I don’t get out much.  For someone that writes a food blog, you’d think that I spend my days frequenting fine restaurants and hob-nobbing with the fooderati of Devon, but unfortunately I pay my bills, not via writing, but through a standard job that pays wages.
