About


WeLoveBites is a blog dedicated to the love of glorious eats, the easiest and tastiest of recipes and vegetarian adventures . This blog is written by me, Rachel Kinchin, a seasoned vegetarian and passionate amateur cook. I was a cruddy vegetarian for about 10 years, then became a pretty careful and considerate vegetarian at the age of 17.

I studied Journalism, Film and Broadcasting at Cardiff University many years ago and I now work in Arts and Culture Marketing by day and I dabble in cooking and blogging by night. I nurture a not-so-secret desire to become a vegetarian Nigella Lawson. 2014 if my year for making shit happen. For spreading the vegetarian love in a big way and for making as many friends and sharing as many stories as possible on this adventure.

I have written for WM magazine in Wales, Western Mail and British Street Food and I organise foody events every so often. Watch out for some pop up events in Cardiff come summer 2014.

I am passionate that vegetarian options in many places are still pretty ruddy poor and a complete afterthought; this is a blog that will bring you honest, celebratory, vegetarian stories and will, over time, develop into a one-stop shop for all things vegetarian. I hope I’m not a preachy vegetarian. My desire is to be part of changing general opinion on vegetarianism, and to make more chefs, restaurants and eateries realise that the vegetarian option is as important, if not more so, than the meaty or fishy dishy. It is more sustainable after all.

If you have a foody/artsy idea and you’d like me to be involved, do get in touch. It will all form part of the adventure…

Tune in for heaps of vegetarian shenanigans… and please tell me about yours…

  2. Hi there, it’s your Yume hairdresser here, Jacqui! Your name popped up and just checked your info out. All sounds progressive and exciting for you and your vegi food fetish. Just done a healthy/vegi 12wk course with Emma Jones in Cardiff. I’m sure you must have heard about her but if not look her up and get in touch. Hope your well and good luck x

    • Hi Jacqui! Lovely to hear from you. I haven’t seen you in ages (as my housemate is now my hairdresser!) All good here thanks – off up to Edinburgh for the summer to work as Marketing Manager at the festival. Will keep food blogging/writing whilst I’m up there. Hope all is swell with you? X

  3. My name is Liz and I’m contacting you from Silver River Productions, a TV company based in London. We are currently in production for a BBC2 primetime gardening show ‘The Big Allotment Challenge.’

    The series follows a handful of talented amateur kitchen gardeners as they transform a plot of earth in our walled garden into a patch of beauty and reveal all the wonderful possibilities that can be unlocked from allotment growing.

    We are looking for contestants to feature in the series, those who have the skill and dedication and who could dig their way to victory and be crowned the winner of ‘The Big Allotment Challenge.’ People who can cultivate the perfect carrot, make their green tomatoes into tasty chutney and turn their dahlias and sweet peas into floral arrangements.

    So whether you’re an allotmenteer, a city living window box grower, or a gardening enthusiast, we want to hear from you. We are coming to the end of our application process so email grow@silverriver.tv for an application form today!

  4. Rachael, your blog looks wonderful. I am excited to try your recipes!
    Looking forward to following you,
    -April

  5. Dear Rachel,
    Really impressed with your blog. Wondered if you’d be interested in taking part in a BBC Radio Wales food series I produce called Wales On The Menu? It gives passionate amateur cooks the chance to test their skills alongside a top chef in a prestigious restaurant – in a bid to get their signature dish on its menu. Would be really grateful if you dropped me a line on menu@parasolmedia.co.uk to find out more. I think you’d be perfect for it!

    All the best,
    Carolyn Hitt
