Work with me

This blog is my adventure through food and is a motley collection of recipes, reviews and other ramblings. As with all content I create, this blog is my copyright, so please don’t reproduce anything from here.

I’m not PR unfriendly, but this blog is moving away from reviews and into recipes. If you think you have a product, service or produce that I will get excited about, and that will fit the readership of this blog (regional, seasonal, independent, ethical, yadda, yadda), then get in touch on or badger me socially: Twitter @northwestnosh, Instagram: @northwestnosh.

As well as blogging I’m a full-time PR and Social Media Manager and freelance copy/content writer. If you like my writing style, get in touch on the email address above. I don’t usually take on PR or social media management clients (although I can put you in touch with lots of lovely people who can help), however I will take on strategy work.

Please note

  • I don’t accept all freebies; I will accept if they fit the readership and theme of the blog.
  • If I receive something for free, I’ll make a point of mentioning the fact that it’s free.
  • If I don’t like something I might not write about it (as I’d prefer this to be a positive space) – but I’ll contact you and tell you why I’m not going to write about it first.
  • I control all content on my blog. There’s no PR sign off/content control and I won’t take a post down just because someone isn’t happy with it; however, if I’ve made a genuine mistake (eg spelling, factually incorrect or broken web link), I’ll correct it.
  • I don’t accept advertising or paid for content on my blog – however I am happy to discuss brand ambassadorships and writing content for your own sites. Contact me on the email above.
  • I have a full time job and I also freelance, so this blog fits into and around my life – I might not be able to get back to you with 24 hours, or post within a day of us chatting – please realise I have to make paying my bills my first priority!

The above list isn’t meant to put any brand, artisan, food lover or general purveyor off, I’m just up front about what my blog is about and what you can expect. Get in touch – I always love to chat food and booze with everyone and anyone under the sun.

  1. Hi Sarah,
    My name is Gareth and I’m a perpetual thinker, I’m awfully sorry but. . . . I’ve come to wondering why take away food is prodomantly foreign based. Whether it be a Turkish kebab or the age old Chinese or Indian meal. I’m thinking why doesn’t the north west of England, with its many different choices of traditional cuisines, provide a fast food alternative. With its stews and one pot ideas being both an economical and a time efficient alternative to the norm of the now traditional, phone for, foods of pizza’s and the rest.

    My girlfriend has learned to cook from her now deceased grandmother. This has provided me with many both palatable and nutritious meals that I feel would please the local masses (I reside in St. Helens).

    I would be more than interested in opening a dialogue on this subject matter and gaining your thoughts on why we make do with the status quo when our own (Lancashire based) meals are just as satisfying and probably more nutritious then what dominates the fast food high street.

    Thanks for taking the time to read my rambles

    1. Hi Gareth – I think as the world becomes more connected (travel, social media, internet), we see and want to try different things. Humans, as a species, are curious old creatures and we have a love of the new. TBH I love all cuisines – the exotic, to the local and think all need to be celebrated. I often use ‘traditional’ recipes or techniques and then blend them flavours from around the world. For example, I love spicy food, but we don’t get much of that (traditionally) in the North West. I believe in cooking and eating that excites you – whether that’s a cottage pie (one of my faves) to chicken shawarma and anything in between. Local food needs to be celebrated and I think you’ll find many writers and restaurants are now doing that. But it’s good to have options for when you need something a little bit different! Kudos on your GF cooking – why don’t you guess open the discussion properly and start your own blog? Sx
