North East Foodies to Follow on Twitter

The world has gone Twitter mad. Celebrities from Stephen Fry to Russell Brand are regularly updating us with 140 characters or less, and hashtags, followers and tweets have become part of our everyday language. I've been a regular user of Twitter for just over a year now (you can follow me at @EatingUpNorth), and aside from using it to put off washing the dishes, it's a really useful tool for foodies. It's great for hearing about new restaurants, shops and events in your local area, as well as discovering new recipes, interesting articles, and interacting with people who share your love of food.

I've seen lists on who to follow for all manner of interests and niches, and so this is my list of suggestions for foodies in the north east. I try to follow those who are interesting, informative, and contribute to discussions and the local food scene as a whole. This is by no means a definitive list, so feel free to leave a comment if you think you should be included, or if you know a great north east foodie who you think I should be following.

Shops/local suppliers


Food bloggers/writers/enthusiasts
