Welcome to Eat Midlands!

Welcome to Eat Midlands – a new online food magazine designed to showcase the very best food and drink the East Midlands has to offer.

From news on restaurant openings and new products, to events listings and profiles of local food heroes, this site will bring together all you need to know about food and drink in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Rutland.

As a PR specialist and former journalist, I am far better at writing about food than actually cooking it, so decided to set up this website in my spare time to share my love of good food and drink and, hopefully, uncover some of the region’s hidden gems.

If you would like to get in touch I’d love to hear from you on Twitter @eatmidlands or you can leave a comment on the site.

If you would like your restaurant/bar/product featured on our pages you can find out more here.

Happy reading!
