UK Food Calendar 2018

 

This calendar is written from my frustration to having to spend hours looking through the internet browsing for something which I think may be of use to me.

I’d like to consider myself as a “semi” food blogger. I like food too much to leave it outside my blogsphere. Okay, I must admit that I’m not that organised yet, but from now on, I hope by doing this calendar, it will help me stay on top of everything. And I hope that this list will also help others with similar interest to us too.
