We are totally chuffed that Kerstin Rodgers, aka Ms. Marmitelover and THE pioneer of the UK’s underground restaurant movement, is speaking at BritMums Live! Kerstin blogs about all kinds of things (politics, film, astrology, dating) but mainly about food. Her blog marmitelover.blogspot.com is one of the most read food blogs in Britain. She has developed new ways of marketing events and promoting food via social media. Her Underground Farmers’ and Craft Market, which takes place at her house, encourages entrepeneurs to start up food businesses via a ‘dragon’s den’ talent panel.
Although she trained as a photographer, cooking has become her job. Her supper club The Underground Restaurant specialises in highly researched original menus. She’s the author of ‘Supper Club: recipes and notes from The Underground Restaurant’ published by Harper Collins in 2011. She’s appeared on TV (The One Show, News 24, Vanessa), radio (Woman’s Hour, Bob Elms Show, Chris Evans show) and in the national press. She’s also singlehandedly raised an 18 year old daughter. She agrees with Roseanne Barr who once said “I figure if my kids are alive at the end of the day, I’ve done my job.”
