Rise and shine

"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day," they say; and I'm as guilty as the next for mindlessly eating a bowl of micro-porridge at my desk, or choosing a lie in over a decent breakfast at the weekend.

But after being inspired by travelling the world with my job - where I get up early to explore foreign cities and eat my way through the culture - I decided to start this blog.

But be warned: you won’t find any traditional fry-ups here. I’m definitely not the greasy spoon kind of gal, as I find a Full English usually leaves me rather queasy. So instead imagine boutique brunches, homemade Seville crepes and maybe a classy Bloody Mary or two if you’re lucky.

I'm already a huge foodie - Back to the Roots was my first foray into blogging where I loved exploring local farmers’ markets and regional food in Wales during my time as a student. Now I live in London and I’m a journalist - so I should know a thing or two about this writing malarkey. I write about technology in enterprise and government and if any of those tricky topics tickle your fancy you can read my professional work here.

I hope you enjoy and please feel free to get in touch via social media... @cl_baldwin on Twitter, @breakfastatcarolines on Instagram, or email me:
