Hi! I’m Lauren
I’m a writer, blogger, social media junkie and food addict with a serious jones for all things caffeine. I live in inner-city Sydney with my gorgeous boyfriend, we dream of one day owning a dachshund. Until that day comes I am content to spend hours on twitter and instagram and in cafés and restaurants.
I *love* twEATups with food bloggers and ‘foodies’ alike. I am practical and impatient but I don’t want to eat anything that doesn’t taste delicious. This, I am determined, is not a contradiction in terms.
When moved to Sydney several years ago, I was a student living in a cockroach-riddled terrace with little money and a complete unwillingness to go on the mee goreng diet. I never had money to eat out, but there was always spare change for a coffee. My tiny kitchen was literally a corridor, with peach walls, little storage, peeling lino, no windows and ugly fluorescent lighting. I figured that if I could whip up a fabulous meal there, it can be done anywhere. The idea of a food and coffee blog has been simmering away ever since.
Coffee is my passion, I can’t live without it and I wouldn’t want to. Corridor Kitchen contains café reviews centred squarely on coffee, as well as coffee making tutorials and tips for everything from perfecting espresso to stovetop magic. Hit me up if you have an ace coffee suggestion, I’m forever on the lookout for exceptional coffee.
At Corridor Kitchen I write about places, products and experiences that I consider worth recommending to my small but loyal readership. As such invitations to events or to check out fledgling cafés are more than welcome, but please note that anything that doesn’t fit with Corridor Kitchen’s focus on commonsense cooking or hunting down excellent coffee will not be considered. I do not accept free meals or payment in return for a review on my blog. Providing a product or service in no way ensures a positive review or any review at all. Corridor Kitchen is a passion project made up entirely of my opinions. As such if I have a negative experience or a criticism to make, I will do so. It goes without saying that neither press releases nor outside copy will be accepted. If in doubt, shoot me an email at: lau[at]corridorkitchen[dot]com
Comments are moderated, mostly due to spam, and correct mistakes- typos, capitalisation and so forth. I approve negative comments, welcome debate, criticism and the whole gamut of p.o.v.’s out there, and I have no problem with a bit of colourful language. I encourage relevant links but don’t allow anything I deem ‘spammy’. And it goes without saying (but I have to say it anyway) that I will not tolerate abuse of any kind, directed either at me or my readers. Comments do not reflect my opinions and nor am I responsible for their content.
