A BRACKNELL foodie, blogger and mum has won a national cook-off competition.

Priestwood resident Filipa Kay launched her blogging website Gourmet Mum three years ago after her first son was born as a way of documenting her tried and tested healthy recipes.

The 32-year-old mum of two said: "I was struggling to cook in general with a young son to look after and I just started to simplify recipes that I already liked.

"I then thought to myself 'I wonder if there are other mums out there in the same boat' and then whether they would like to see the recipes - which is when I posted them online." For the full story, buy a copy of the Bracknell News today.
