Tracey Saunders-6

Hello and welcome to my blog!

Everybody loves eating and drinking, but I’ve made it my mission to create the best bite-sized guide to independent food and drink in the West Midlands.

I’m not a home cook so there are no recipes on my blog, just the latest news on local food producers, independent shops, food events, chefs and restaurants. Everything that a foodie needs to really enjoy a taste of the region.

Midlands Gourmet Girl has been blog of the month in Great British Food magazine and shortlisted for Cosmopolitan Best Food Blog and Lifestyle Blogger for City & Style magazine, as well as featuring in regional media.


If you would like to reach almost 10,000 discerning food and drink lovers in the West Midlands then I have the answer for you!

A tile ad on the home page of Midlands Gourmet Girl, with a direct link to your website is available for a minimum three month period.

I can also offer a sponsored blog post, to feature either on the news page or reviews page,with two tweets to my 2,000+ followers.

If you have an event to promote there is an opportunity to be the sole sponsor of my monthly Events page, featuring you as event of the month. As well as being flagged as sponsor, I would write a blog post for you, add a link to your website to track bookings and tweet the link twice for a very reasonable fee.

Or just promote a one off event to be included in my monthly round-up.


As a food and leisure PR consultant, I have launched restaurants in London and Birmingham, led PR campaigns for food brands, promoted street food events and tastings and managed Twitter and Facebook feeds for clients.

I also write food articles and reviews for regional media, so if your brand needs some support and you want to engage with potential and existing diners then get in touch!


Feedback on the site is most welcome – especially your recommendations on local food producers, so please get in touch at midlandsgourmetgirl@gmail.com


All the views on this site are my own personal opinion. When I am invited by a PR agency or a chef to review a restaurant I clearly state this in my review.

  1. Hey, I was wondering if you were going to be at Cake International in November seeing as it’s in Brum? I can’t wait to go, and as a young food blogger myself, decided it would be a great opportunity. I lived in Nottingham for a year, and used to blog on restaurants and eateries up there. I’m pretty new on the scene down here though. It’s kinda weird, I was looking at this Cake International show, and noticed that the author of my favourite decorating book (All You Need Is Cake) is going to be demonstrating and doing signings there. How exciting! Anyway, a little off topic….I was just wondering if you could give me any tips on blogging at large events. Do I review it as a whole, or do each individual stand or what? Hoping you could make it. The dates are the 7th to the 9th.

    Thank you for your time and I hope to hear back from you soon,
