About Cookery Ideas

Bob TooveyI’m Bob Toovey and I welcome you to Cookery Ideas.

I have a big love of food, it’s my way of relaxing after staring at computer screens all day. The site started as a way of bringing together the recipes I love. However it has changed over time and has become something much more.

Cookery Ideas has rapidly become the place for discovering new and exciting food ideas. The core idea is to search the web looking for great food bloggers and their recipes, then share with you the best of what we find.

I love to work with food bloggers with all different levels of experience. I just want to share my passion and excitement and yours too!
