The Midlands Food Bloggers has been active for some time now, but with this new community blog and a few events and things in the planning stages, we hope the group will grow in members and provide a hub for the food bloggers of the Midlands.

So what have you missed so far? Well here’s a look at what we’ve been up to.

Way back in March 2010 we had our first meet up. Jo of organised a visit to , the home of Tom Baker and headquarters of Loaf Cookery School offering classes in forgotten skills like breadmaking, butchery and foraging, and a Community Bakery, providing phentermine artisan rye and sourdough breads to locals that commit to buy. During the day we met Wendy from , had a go at making handmade pizzas in Tom’s wood buring oven, chatted about food (of course!) and induldged in a selection of cake we had all prepared.

To read more about it from some of the attendees visit the following links: Jo from , Louise from and Charlene from .

The next meet up was at in Birmingham, where we met up with a couple of local businesses: Gavin from , a local cake baker and supplier to Urban Coffee Co amongst other ; and Brian from , which is a farmers market in the Jewellery Quarter. The order of the afternoon was coffee and cake and a general chit chat about blogging and the Midlands Food scene.

It was here we decided to plan a Midlands Food Bloggers (MFB) visit to the next monthly Farmers market at 24 Carrots. So on a cold but sunny morning Jo and Louise spent an enjoyable morning meeting various Midlands food producers. You can read all about it and .
