Hey, I’m Chris – face, photographer, videographer, writer, brains and beau… You get the picture 😂
Now there’s a sneaky suspicion you may recognize me from Don’t Go Bacon My Heart – Yep, that’s me! Don’t Go Bacon My Heart is my other blog (yes, I am crazy running two blogs).
How did we end up here?
Well, I’m hoping you ended up here because you like sandwiches. If not we could have an issue 🤣
My journey as a blogger started in 2015 when I was bullied into joining Instagram by my friends. I’m not much of a selfie kinda guy, so naturally the only thing I could think of posting was food. Started off with my dinners (which by the way were absolutely horrendous, my cooking ability 5 years ago was questionable to say the least). After somehow gaining a few followers, I decided to make a completely separate Instagram totally dedicated to my horrendous dinners. From there, and after refining my cooking skills, I decided to start a blog and just a few years later Don’t Go Bacon My Heart was not only my pride and joy, but my full time job!
Along the way I’ve had the pleasure of working with some incredible companies and brands, and have managed to find myself in some top publications too. To name just a few:
Alongside this, in 2019 at the UK Blog Awards I managed to scoop myself up an award!
Towards the end of the year I ended up stepping out from behind the blog and actually found myself on a TV show. I’ve said over and over again I’d never in a million years go on TV, but somehow before I could even question why I was stood on the world’s first edible set, serving Heston Blumenthal floating mashed potato for Netflix’s hit show Crazy Delicious. You’re gonna need to watch that for some context, but for now here’s me under pressure trying to measure water, for reasons I can’t remember 😂
Okay, but really, why sandwiches?
Fast forward to Summer of 2020, I really wanted to sink my teeth into a new project. I knew at some point I wanted to start a second, more niche blog, and sandwiches just made so much sense. I truly believe people don’t realise how much they love a good sandwich. They’re insanely versatile and perfect for so many different occasions. Alongside that I LOVE being creative with food, and with sandwiches the possibilities are just absolutely endless. Anywho, if you couldn’t tell already, I love sandwiches 😁
What are you serving up?
I’ve split the blog into 4 main categories: Sandwiches, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Sides and Condiments. All of these categories contain a mixture of classic, crazy, simple and fun recipes. All recipe posts contain step by step photos, a detailed recipe and a quick video to go alongside.
How do I keep in touch?
Be sure to following along on Instagram | Facebook | Pinterest | YouTube. Alongside that be sure to sign up to my weekly newsletter to stay up to date with all the new recipes. Also check out my FAQ for anything I may have missed.
So, are you ready to find you new favourite sandwich? 😏
