Hi! I'm Bea, I am a food teacher at a secondary school. I live just outside Manchester and all its foodie offerings. This is my blog Bea's Bites Online, I'll be posting all about food and drink with an added smattering of travel. I am lucky enough to have grown up with a variety of influences, my mum is from Zimbabwe, my dad is from Ghana and I grew up in a village in the North West, so food has always been a blend and balance of cultures for me. From being little, food has played a large part in our family, whether it be for celebrations, commiserations or comfort. I began helping out in the kitchen from a young age and was fortunate enough to be given the reigns on occasion from the age of 11. I love being in the kitchen and having the opportunity to create something to make others smile. Whether it be an autumnal main or a gooey dessert :) I am a total believer in happy eating. Food should put a smile on your face no whether it's a weekday, after work dinner or a special occasion. I love following recipes and do think it is sometimes a necessity but I also think that food should be personal and geared towards what you like and I hope this comes across in my blog. I hope you enjoy reading my posts, let me know if you stop by, it will definitely put a smile on my face! Please don't hesitate to get in touch, my email is: beasbitesonline@hotmail.com If you have any posts you'd like to see then please feel free to email me and I'll do my best : ) Bea x
