I first got into writing when I was invited to pen a weekly recipe column for a Sunday newspaper. Eighteen months later on a whim I googled my name, never dreaming for a moment it would come up…but there it was.
I found out that newspapers sell old copy to archival services on the internet, so like it or not my name was out there so I decided to blog. I’ve now been on this journey since early 2006 and it has certainly been an interesting one, giving me opportunities to judge in food competitions, in the UK, Ireland and Spain I’ve gone on press trips around the UK, Canada, France Austria and Croatia. I still have to balance this with earning a living via consulting and teaching, and lockdown meant much of the teaching moved online via zoom.
I launched this blog in April 2015, and as of December 2022 it has received 11,584,673 hits so I thank all my readers for their continued support. I try hard to make my blog(s) readable and a mixture of my recipes, equipment reviews, cookbook reviews, trvelogues and food news. These days, you can find me quite easily on most social media sites Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest and even have a YouTube channel For more information about me just google Chef Kevin Ashton. You can also find more about me here.
