A Magazine for
Ros Ayres

Food is a topic which is on my mind most of the time from what I’ve eaten to what I’ll be eating. I enjoy home-cooking and getting creative in the kitchen, cooking doesn’t have to be complicated. Some of the best dishes can come from using a few well matched ingredients.

I love being the Food Editor for Now Then magazine as I’m passionate about sharing food stories, championing local producers, makers and the great places to enjoy in Sheffield for food and drink.

Food is ingrained into all of our lives to a lesser or greater extent, as we all have to eat. It’s important that we enjoy our food (and drink) whether that’s eating well, using our local greengrocers, trying a new Sheffield ale or cooking with family and friends.

You can find more of my writing on my blog and I write poetry, some of which I share on my website.
