About us

collage foodie explorers

We are Mark and Emma who have been blogging since 2007!   We love our grub and our city but like to spread our wings as well. Originally known as Food & Drink Glasgow and hosted on wordpress.com, we moved to foodanddrinkglasgow.co.uk in 2012 and then re-branded to Foodie Explorers in 2016 as we were covering much more than just food and drink in Glasgow!

A media pack can be provided on request.

We also have a team of friends who also love food, drink and travel assisting us on the site:

A note about page views on the site

There is a page view counter on each page but these were reset to zero when we updated our theme in July 2017 hence articles prior to this will have low and incorrect page view tallies.
