About this blog

Yet another food blog? This one is based in Sheffield and is backed up by over a quarter of a century of writing about food and reviewing restaurants for the Sheffield Star.

Martin Dawes at work – eating in a restaurant

The city and its surrounding area may not be gourmet nirvana but there is an awful lot that is good to eat here.

On The Star I used to have an expense account so it was not ultimately money from my own pocket which paid for some 1,400 dinners (and lunches and breakfasts) down the years. As I gave up reviewing in October 2015 it will be my own money now so reviews may not be as plentiful!

However I do enjoy eating out, cooking, foraging, pickling, preserving and discovering the history of food then writing about it so I shan’t run out of ideas.

And if you’d like to employ me and the missus on a ‘mystery diner’ basis I would be happy to help.

You can contact me at martin.dawes@live.co.uk or martindawes46@gmail.com or by phone on 07713 900 883.
