Join us for #BlogCamp River Cottage!



This September 23rd, we’re thrilled to be partnering with world-famous cookery school River Cottage to host a special BlogCamp event for UK food bloggers.

It will be a day celebrating all things food and blogging related, with some expert input from River Cottage staff and invited speakers.

The day will kick off at 9.30am with a tractor ride from the school car park down to the farm, where you’ll be greeted with tea and coffee and some delicious morning snacks.

During the morning, we’ll be running sessions on food styling and photography, along with an unmissable cookery session with a special River Cottage guest tutor, where you’ll learn to bake your own bread and make your own butter!

There will also be time for a farm tour and a Q&A with head gardener Will.

The day will finish with a Q&A panel and networking time, before we take a tractor ride back to the entrance – along with your baked goods, of course.

  1. Oh my days! What a perfect event: I so want to be there! My favourite British recipe has got to be a huge puffed up Toad in the Hole: using brilliant sausages from my local farm shop Summerhill in Bedford. It’s a really comforting dish for me & always brings a smile to my hungry family’s faces! X

  2. For me it has to be the casserole or stew. Wholesome, healthy, one pot cooking that is easy for everyone to do. I remember hearty casseroles being served up as a child; beef, chicken, lamb, veggie. So versatile and very British. And don’t forget those dumplings πŸ™‚

  3. Wow! What a wonderful day that would be. My favourite British Recipe hmmm I think my favourite British Recipe is whatever is in season in the UK. For example a plate of new potatoes with melted butter, home grown runner beans with a roasted chicken. Followed by a homemade blackberry and apple crumble. Simple but satisfying.

  4. Oh, I’ve been getting River Cottage event emails for years in the hopes of someday being able to attend one! Yorkshire pudding is one of my favourite British foods. The first time I ordered a roast with Yorkshire pudding I enjoyed my meal and sat waiting for ages for the pudding to arrive! I was very embarrassed when I realised what Yorkshire pudding actually was, but it’s one of my favourite home made foods.

  5. Visited Axminster for hols a couple of years ago, lovely area. My favourite British recipe is a cottage pie in the winter months.

  6. Favourite British recipe? Oh my goodness..that’s hard to choose just one. Love a steak and ale pie or a big bowl of (Northern) Irish stew!

  7. I would love to win this, I only live in Honiton, about 10-15 mins drive away and would love to finally visit river cottage!

    My favourite British classic recipe has to be treacle sponge!! Yummy πŸ™‚

  8. Probably Parkin – I spend from October until December making it in batches for friends and family. It’s a sign of autumn and the change in the weather for me.

  9. It would have to be good old pie and mash – I’m an East Londoner, so it has to be that πŸ˜‰ Going on this BlogCamp would be a dream!

  10. Gotta be bread and butter pudding (with cardamom!) would be great to attend this camp, and lovely to meet so many other like minded people!

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

Got it!
