About Peach Trees
Hello! I’m Ashley and Peach Trees and Bumblebees is my food and lifestyle blog.
What’s Peach Trees all about?
Peach Trees is a food and lifestyle blog. It’s mostly food and recipes, but more recently it has stretched to include topics such as homeware, weddings, and general lifestyle topics.
Is Peach Trees your only blog?
Why did you start Peach Trees?
Peach Trees began in March 2011, when I realised I couldn’t keep ringing my mum every time I needed a recipe. It was also a great excuse to create a place to start storing the original recipes I was creating and adapting. It’s still my own little recipe file and I use it pretty much every day.
In 2014 I realised there was more I wanted to talk about, so I started writing about other things such as weddings and home furnishings.
Is Peach Trees your full time job?
Peach Trees is a part time gig for me unfortunately – I do have a day job that keeps me busy from 9-5! But food and writing are my passions, so this is my little corner of the internet devoted to creating, baking, making, writing, and eating. I hope you find the recipes and posts on Peach Trees useful and interesting.
Do you do guest posts?
I’m always happy to post guest recipes from fellow bloggers (though branded recipes do need to be discussed first), so get in touch if you’re keen to share your stuff!
Do you work with PRs?
If you’re in PR and you’re looking to chat about working together, please head to my advertising and PR page. I’m always happy to hear from you,
and I regularly do restaurant reviews, product reviews, gift guides, and features (in addition to all my recipes).
Do you have a food philosophy?
Just good honest food – no bullshit. And no ‘foam’.
What’s your favourite thing to make?
I’m best when I’m baking – I love to make big layer cakes and pretty bundts. I’m making my sister’s wedding cake this year, so that’s the next big challenge!
What’s your favourite thing to eat?
Anything my mum’s made – she is the best cook I know and she’s taught me a LOT about cooking. I would choose her Christmas dinner over Michelen starred whatsits any day of the year.
Where’s your favourite place to eat?
I’m a Londoner so there are a LOT of delicious places on my favourites list! At the moment I love: Hawksmoor (Seven Dials), The Wolseley, Pizza Pilgrims, and Gails Kitchen.
