Chris Gower

Food Blogger

I have been blogging about food in one way or another since 2007 when I started Veget8, a blog about my vegetarianism and places that I visited whilst being a vegetarian. I am no longer a vegetarian, but I continued with Eating Exeter which was founded in 2011. It continues to this day going from strength to strength.

I am looking to expand my freelance writing horizon and am open to ideas and opportunities.
