Vuelio uses a proprietary algorithm to create these rankings, based on topic-related content in blogs on its system – you can read more about the process here. Our research team actively seeks out new blogs and bloggers for inclusion, but if you think we’ve missed someone, please get in touch to let us know.
Still top drawer in our ranking of UK food blogs is Recipes From A Pantry, where blogger Bintu dishes up regular portions of ‘exciting colours, flavours and spices’ in the form of tempting recipes. Split up into Easy Instant Pot, Air Fryer Recipes, as well as Southern and Jamaican meal plans, this blog is fully-stocked when it comes to accessibility and convenience. For something healthy and hearty today, check out Bintu’s instructions for Almond Butter Granola (Breakfast), Steak Fajitas (lunch) and Ground Chicken Chilli (dinner).
Another non-mover in this year’s update of our UK food blog ranking is Dannii’s Hungry Healthy Happy, where hungry readers can find happiness with healthy ideas for ‘family friendly recipes’. Particularly useful for those with growing families – the blog’s Back To School section, because, in the words of Dannii, ‘life gets busier when the kids go back to school’. Pick from Microwave Porridge, Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon, Sausage and Mash and much more (all much better than instant noodles, any day).
For those in search of a bit more spice in their life, here is The Curry Guy. With the cost-of-living crisis in the UK right now, eating out and ordering in isn’t possible for everyone. Luckily, blogger Dan Toombs is posting recipes for British Indian Restaurant style food for cooking, and eating, at home. If you’re not hungry right now for Indian Restaurant Recipes, you can also pick from the BBQ, Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese sections. However, what looks good to us at the time of writing is Dan’s 15 One Pan Indian Restaurant Curry Recipes.
In preparation for the comeback of The Great British Bake Off later this year, let’s move to baked goods with Jane’s Patisserie. Here, blogger, food writer and photographer Jane Dunn shares both savouries and sweet stuff in words and pictures (unfortunately, for more 3D things, you will have to make the food yourself – thankfully, the recipes are very easy to follow). During your next food shop, may we suggest you pick up the ingredients for Jane’s Rolo Blondies and Mini Lemon & Raspberry Cheesecakes (and invite us over to eat them).
5. Becky Excell
Staying at number 5 in our ranking is another blog sharing beautiful baking – gluten-free and dairy-free. ‘Inspired by years of missing out on all of my favourite foods, I decided to share recipes for all the things I couldn’t eat on a gluten-free diet,’ says Becky. And her readers benefit alongside Becky – recent recipes include the super-easy 4-Ingredient Snickers Banana Pops, Gluten-free Cheese Puffs and Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Pepperoni Pasta.
Another non-mover this year is Lavender and Lovage, where freelance food and travel writer, food stylist and recipe developer Karen Burns-Booth posts about ‘food and travel from home and abroad’. If you haven’t been able to travel far over the last few years, this blogger can help your tastebuds take a journey instead. Ransack what you’ve got in the cupboard already with her Store-Cupboard Saviours feature – recipes include One Pan Frugal Breakfast and ‘Beefaroni’ Pasta Bake.
In need of a space safe from disappointing meals? Let Nicky & co. at the Kitchen Sanctuary lead the way. Here, food tutorials for meals worthy of any family dinner are easy to follow, whatever your culinary skillset (or lack off). Scroll through the Summer Favourites section for ‘some of our favourite recipes to enjoy this summer’, featuring The Ultimate Double Cheeseburger, Lamb Barbacoa Carnitas, BBQ Chicken Wings and Easy Creamy Potato Salad (for your health).
8. Pinch of Nom
A new entry to our Top 10 UK Food Blog ranking is Pinch of Nom, where you can find much more than just a pinch of food inspiration. Co-founded by Kay and Kate in 2016 after starting their own weight-loss journeys, the blog (as well as a podcast, book and recipes section) shares ‘tried and tested slimming recipes and helpful information’. Now with a full team behind it, Pinch of Nom has plenty to enjoy – check out Our Favourite Kitchen Gadgets, Recipes for Pizza Lovers and what to shop for this week.
If this ranking has been a bit too meaty so far, here is one for the plant-based lovers out there. Sandhya – who also features in our Baking blog ranking alongside a few others on this list – posts vegetarian and vegan meal ideas in her Instant Pot, Airfryer Recipes and Recipe Index sections. ‘Let’s celebrate food together!’ says Sandhya, who has how-tos for full meals, snacks, beverages and desserts. Recent recipes shared – Easy Coconut Chickpea Curry, Air Fryer Peanuts and Honey Glazed Carrots.
Still one of the best blog names we’ve seen in our travels through the top blogs in the UK is Don’t Go Bacon My Heart, where award-winning food blogger Chris treats his readers with recipes for ‘next level comfort food that you’ll ACTUALLY make’. Those in need of some comfort right now – and quality eats – need search no longer. Dip into Chris’s selections for Breakfast N Brunch, Date Night Diners, Delicious Dips, Finger Food, Hearty Dinners, Simple Sauces and Summer Lovin’, Sides and Tex Mex.
