Not Quite Nigella and is run by Lorraine Elliott, who does an amazing job. She writes about restaurants/cafes she gets to visit, recipes she's tried and also about her experiences with cooking classes. It's so addictive, I've read back through a couple of years worth of posts and I've compiled a huge document with recipes that I want to try out! She has a fondness for Southern American food, like red velvet cake, that I very much understand!
Lorraine's been lucky enough to travel to heaps of locations in Australia and around the world and she writes about restaurants she's visited in various countries, including New Zealand, Canada, Austria etc. It's definitely a blog that I would recommend and is worth reading!
