I’ve been reading Olive Magazine for years, ever since my friend Louise gave me a subscription for Christmas.
I like the positivity and enthusiasm of Olive. It feels like a celebration of food and drink as a whole – it doesn’t just focus on the eating or the cooking, but it understands all aspects. Although I feel Brum could focus more in there, its had some great suggestions – Blue Ginger in Kings Heath I found because of an article in there, which I duly ripped out and waved at my mum.
And recently someone pointed out that assistant editor Lulu’s Notes blog had a post on What to eat and drink in Birmingham, and the the last line stopped me in my tracks; “If it’s neighbourhood eats you’re after, rather than more rarefied dining, check out these two local food blogs: Full To The Brum & Smoke And Umami.”
I’m so utterly dumbfounded to be referenced on the site – thanks Olive Magazine!
