Bakes and Blogs

My name is Alfie Venner Woodcock and here is a quick recap before I share my new blog with you.

While in London I wrote regular Theatre reviews for whats-on-london, while also writing freelance articles for companies such as and

I have worked on the food blog coriandercumin for two years, while I lived in Norwich and then in London. This project documents me killing and preparing cockerels in Somerset, sampling the finest London Honey, reviewing restaurants in the South of France and making a raw milk cheese with an Australian master cheese maker in South London.

I now live in Portsmouth and work in the city’s first and only sourdough bakery. As I work shifts in the early mornings and the afternoons, I have the time to get down to what I really love doing – writing.

My new blog bakesandblogs continues where coriandercumin left off, but has a broader range of topics; my first two posts are on DIY and Baking. Have a read and find out what I’m getting up to.

Please contact me if you would like to commission content – I specialise in food, restaurants, reviews, theatre, film, literature, promotion of independent businesses, hospitality and more.
