Our Growing Edge is the part of us that is still learning and experimenting. It’s the part that you regularly grow and improve, be it from real passion or a conscious effort. This monthly event aims to connect and inspire us to try new things and to compile a monthly snapshot of what food bloggers are getting up to.

Who can join?

Our Growing Edge is open to anyone. It is not a competition and there are no prizes or winners, it is just a way  to share new experiences. You do not have to commit every month, just when you have something to share. To enter, you must blog about achieving a food related challenge that you have meaning to do (or redo). It could be easy, like tasting a new food or difficult, like cooking a life long nemesis recipe. It could be building or growing something an edible garden, or successfully preserving food. As long as it is food related and new to you, you can share your newly learned knowledge with the group.

Want to host? Just fill out this form.


  1. Hi Genie! Thanks for the invite! I’m interested in participating in this, absolutely. When does it start/ has it already started?

  2. Thanks for the invite, Genie. What a lovely idea. Most of my forays into the kitchen are a challenge of one sort or another, so I’ve plenty to contribute!
    P.S. I love your “eat fish and chips somewhere glorious” – I ate gluten-free fish and chips (for the first time in over 3 years) on the beach at Tenby (a seaside resort in Wales) last June. It was the first night of our holiday, the first time my son had played in the sand and the sun was shining. It was truly glorious. I hope you get to cross it off your list soon!

    • I’d love to cross it off my list too. While I had fish and chips not long ago, it was inside in a little fish and chips shop without the lovely vista I had in mind. I look forward to your contribution to the event!

  3. Thanks for the invite, Genie! What an honor! I’ve already linked up and edited my post to include the info about “Our Growing Edge”. So excited to see everybody else’s stories =)

  4. Hi Genie, thanks so much for the invite. I’m a new food blogger and was really excited to see this invitation. Looking forward to it.

    p.s. i love all the bunny pics…super cute!

  5. It was only on this month’s re-read of the guidelines that I noticed this:

    “This month is hosted by Tofu the rabbit at Bunnies Don’t Cook.”

    HAHA. Too cute. :3

  6. Thanks a bunch for the lovely invitation Genie, I will definitely join :) And your bunny looks super cute!

  7. Thank you for inviting me to this for last month–I had some issues that prevented me from participating, but I’ve got one all ready to go for July!

  8. Thank you for the invite. It’s a fantastic idea and fits with the type of things I like to do in the kitchen. I dont’ have an idea in mind yet for this month but I will have a think about it and hopefully come up with something.

  9. This is awesome Genie! Thank you for the invitation. I would really like to be active again in food blogging, I’m just busy with some stuffs atm as I recently moved to Auckland..Oh, I hope to see you around. Cheers!

  10. Thank you for the invite Genie! It sounds super interesting. Does that mean any kind of recipe post will be okay? I have already got one in mind and hopefully I can make it soon in this busy May :)

  11. Hi Genie! I just signed up to be a future host for Our Growing Edge. There are some very talented participants attending this party. Question, I’ve done these link ups before and just contributed by adding my recipe url through InLinkz . I’ve seen where it states you have to also link to the host for that particular party. Where do you do that? Sorry to be so dense.

I love your comments! Your comments are like extra melted cheese on top.
