All about me

My name is Amy Chetwynd and I have a huge passion for all things food! I sound like I have an addiction; I guess it is a sort of addiction. I love good food, whether it’s made by my mum, out in a fancy restaurant or a cheeky take-out on a Sunday evening. As long as it is good, I love it.

My favourite things are:

  • A good cup of tea! (and a biscuit to dip hehe)
  • A large glass of Pinot Grigio
  • Cheeeseeee – all cheese, any cheese, all the cheese!
  • My little ball of fluff (my little hammy called Fluffy)

I am currently in my final year of University, having worked for a year full-time as part of my degree. I currently work for a food ingredients company working in the marketing department specifically digital. I absolutely love my job, I get to work with food every day and understand how to market the ingredients to manufacturers and what consumers are interested in.

As a student I don’t get to eat out as often as I wish I could, but this blog gives me a great excuse to get out more! I am all about getting great food at the right price, I am pretty savvy and will always look for a deal online before choosing a restaurant and using all of the great offers such as gourmet society card, taste cardΒ and anΒ NUS card. All pretty cheaply available and give great discounts at fantastic restaurants.

As well as eating out, I love to cook myself. I never buy ready meals, although I do often buy take-out. I spend probably far too long cooking, since starting full-time work I have had to cut my recipes down and learn how to cook simple dishes that don’t take too long; otherwise I wouldn’t be eating till bedtime. I will be posting my recipes for both savoury and sweet including my famous chilli and my mum’s classic chocolate cake.

I will be posting either a recipe or a review every Sunday. I would love for you to follow me on Instagram @chefwynd, and subscribe to my blog
