Hello Chip Butties and Noodle Soup, so tell us...
When did you begin your blog, and what inspired you to start it?
October 2012. I had been thinking about writing my recipes down and sharing them for some time, but never got round to it. Blogging seemed like the perfect way to start off doing this. I rarely wrote my recipes down before starting the blog so this is a good way for me to have a record of them in one place. I love food, and cooking has been a passion for me throughout my life. Having an outlet for this and being able to share my recipes with others is a pleasure.
Are you involved in the blogging community - how do you attract new readers?
I really appreciate all the comments I get and people spending time stopping by to check out my blog and recipes. It is great getting feedback if someone enjoyed or tried a recipe. I always try to reply to comments and continue the conversation....both on my own and other blogs. Twitter is also great at keeping up to date and meeting like minded food fans.
Who are your culinary influences?
My family and friends. I love reading cook books and TV cooking shows but my biggest influences are definitely my family.
How did you come up with the name Chip Butties and Noodle Soup?
They are 2 of my favourite things - the ultimate comfort foods, and earliest childhood food memories...my babcia cooking us Polish chicken noodle soup and chip butties were always a family favourite with proper home cooked chips....delicious.
What is your earliest food memory?
got to be chip butties and Polish chicken noodle soup, my Nan's bacon sandwiches...oh and Farley's rusks!
Do you have a secret ingredient, a product you use a lot that is unexpected?
not secret, but am lost in the kitchen without lemons, olive oil and garlic...and of course good salt and pepper
Is there any dish, ingredient or type of food you refuse to cook?
not refuse but can't say i'm too fond of prepping offal
You like to experiment with new recipes from all over the world. What are some of the most exotic dishes you've created?
I am so used to eating food from different cultures and countries I don't see it as exotic it is just part of how me and my family have always cooked. There are so many cuisines out there and I love learning about them...it's never ending which is great.
What are your goals for your blog? Where would you like to see it in the next year? Five years?
I would like to continue with the blog, and keep on learning more as I go along. There is so much more to learn about writing, blogging, cooking. I am hoping that cooking will play an increasingly bigger role in my professional life and have various plans that are coming together at the moment...watch this space!
Thank you Chip Butties and Noodle Soup for answering our questions and see you soon!
