My name is Michelle, I develop recipes, I write about food, and I take all the photos. Originally from Ireland I now live in Ely, Cambridgeshire, England with my husband and daughter. Ely is one of he smallest cities in England and is famous for its beautiful Cathedral, quaint tea shops and annual eel festival. We moved to Ely from Ireland at the end of 2013, before that we lived on the lovely island of Jersey where we met, married and had our amazing daughter Abigail. We love living in Ely and being so near to Cambridge so I think we’ll be staying here for some time yet!
I started this blog with the good intention of sharing my recipes, which are mostly seasonal, sometimes local and are usually easy to make. I did train as a health and wellness coach and have a diploma in diet, health and coaching from The Institute of Health Sciences Ireland, but I don’t practice that, making good food is where my heart lies. We are not vegan or vegetarian, but some of my recipes will be. I was a (not 100% committed) vegetarian for about 7 years before I became pregnant with our daughter and still cook a lot of vegetarian food but I also eat meat occasionally. I believe in living a happy, healthy, well balanced life where I can eat cake if I want to!
The aim of this blog is to help you make good food for you and your family. There will be no crazy long lists of ingredients, no hard to find ingredients, just simple, good food that everyone will enjoy. Everything I have learnt about cooking has come from cooking and talking about food with my Grandmother, my Mother and my Sister; from reading lots of cookery books, cooking magazines, doing my course and cooking for my family and friends. I am not a trained chef, dietician, or trained photographer. All recipes are my own unless stated, any recipes that have been inspired by other recipes will be credited. I hope you find my blog a good resource to help you on your way to cooking good food for you and your family.

P.S. Just in case you were wondering about the name The Last Food Blog, well I feel I’ve left it so late to start a food blog, and there are a gazillion food blogs out there that, well, we may just be at peak food blog status so I guess this has to be the last food blog! 🙂
