14/10/20: In conversation with Kim Jaye, a visually impaired chef.

The image shows a grid of small square photos. Each photo os of a dish that KimJaye has cooked, from koftas in pitta, to jars of chutney. 8 images are in shot. A small photo of Kim Jaye's face is placed in the centre within a grey circle. All set on a light yellow background.

Visually impaired chef Kim Jaye will be talking about some of her recipes, accessible kitchen equipment and her techniques as a VI chef. Kim Jaye has written two large print recipe books (with all profits going to RNIB) and has also made many recipe videos to promote confidence and ability in the kitchen amongst the VI community. You can find out more about Kim, here.

30/09/20: Shopping!

This week we’re talking…shopping. Online delivery supermarket slots are being snapped up yet again and panic buying has commenced ahead of a rumoured national second lockdown.


How do you do your food shop? Are you an online delivery consumer or do you prefer going to the shop in person? Do you stick to the supermarkets or are you on first name terms with your local butcher and grocer?


How do you create your shopping list and keep track of what’s running low? Do you prefer to do your own shopping or have help from others? Which are the most accessible online supermarket sites that you’ve found?
