This site is about folklore, history and travel through the magic of food and stories.  I love books almost as much as I love food. Cheese is also incredibly important. It is also the home of Folklore, Food and Fairytales storytelling podcast and the Tuesday CheeseDay blog.

If you want to eat your way around the world or through time without leaving home then this is the place for you. The stories will sometimes take you even further.

I have nothing to sell, this is just my way of legitimising enjoying my interests rather than cleaning my house. I am (whispers age I never thought I’d be) and sadly still waiting for my fairy-tale library and matching secret passageway to appear.

Folklore, Food & Fairytales episodes and the accompanying blog posts are published every two weeks. Tuesday CheeseDay blogs are published on a frankly arbitrary basis.

A warning for those of a delicate disposition, the occasional cat and cocktail may make an appearance.
