#FoodYearLinkup – September 2015

After a pretty quiet month in the Food Blogger’s Calendar in August, normal service is very much resumed in September with loads of great events to fill you with foodie blogging inspiration.

Food Year Linkup September 2015
Before I get going with this month’s linkup I wanted to share my favourite post from August’s #FoodYearLinkup

As usual there were lots of great posts linked up, but there was simply no contest for my favourite. I’ve been avidly following any bloggers that are baking along with the Great British Bake Off but I’ve noticed that there is a slight tendency to shy away from the showstoppers – very few biscuit boxes or bread sculptures. So when Sarah from Tales from the Kitchen Shed linked up her beautiful bread flower I knew that it was going to be my pick this month.


So what’s the theme this month?

As always, I’d love you to come and link up any foodie posts relating to the events in the Food Blogger’s Calendar for August.

5 August – TBC – The Great British Bake Off

1-30 September – Scottish Year of Food and Drink – Showcase and Farmers’ Markets Month

1-30 September – Organic September

1-30 September – Sourdough September

6-21 September – Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight

14-20 September – National Cupcake Week

19 September – 4 October – British Food Fortnight

25 September – World’s Biggest Coffee Morning – Macmillan Cancer Support

28 September – 3 October – Craft Baker’s Week

29 September – International Coffee Day

If there’s an event missing from the calendar that you’d like to link up a post for, that’s absolutely fine, just make sure you let me know what the event is in the comments.

To join in with the #FoodYearLinkup…

  1. Click the “add your link” button and add your link with a nice picture to entice everyone to come and have a look.
  2. Add the #FoodYearLinkup badge to your post so your readers know where to come to find lots of other fun foodie posts (you’ll find the code towards the bottom of this post).
  3. To make my life easier I’d appreciate it if you could leave me a quick comment letting me know which event you’re linking up for (it helps me to tweet them at the right time).
  4. Join me in visiting the other linkers making sure you comment on at least one (I’m more than happy for you to link up several posts, but if you do it would be great if you would go and comment on one other post for each one you link).
  5. Come back again next month and do it all again.

Throughout the month I’ll be tweeting every entry and if you tweet me (@CharlottesLK) using the #FoodYearLinkup hashtag to let me know you’ve linked up I’ll make sure I include you in the tweet. I’ll also be pinning every entry on my dedicated #FoodYearLinkup board and may include my favourites in round up posts for a selection of events throughout the year. The tweets and round up posts may also include images from your post. If you’d rather they didn’t then just let me know in the comments.

So what are you waiting for? Link up up right here…

Food Year Linkup Badge

Before I go…

I’ve been busy adding events into the calendar so make sure you take a look and see what’s new.

This day I love - Linked


  1. Linking up my Charlotte Russe for GBBO! 🙂

  2. The response to my Flower Bread post has been overwhelming and I’m so pleased you picked it for your round up – thanks Charlotte x

  3. I’ve just realised I’d completely forgotten to link up (how dare I?) so I’ve just added a madeleine recipe lovely Eva shared on my little blog on Friday.

    • Shocking! At least you added the badge this time 🙂

      I love the sound of chocolate orange madeleines. I’ll be over for a proper look later x

      • Oh no, don’t tell me I forgot the badge before. Let me know which recipe and I’ll add it tonight 😉 I’m not evil, I promise!

        • It was last month, I hadn’t even noticed until you confessed in the comments (I really don’t tend to check up on that sort of thing 🙂 )

          You made truffles with bugs in them and then made people eat them so I suspect you may be a little bit evil!

  4. September’s food events certainly makes up for the quietness of August.
    I’ve linked up my ’99’ ice-cream style cupcakes with blackberries for National Cupcake Week.

    • Thanks Angela, those look delicious.

      Have you seen the #LoveSeasonalFood linky over on grubbylittlefaces.com the theme this month is blackberries.

      • Yes, I ‘ve seen Clare’s #LoveSeasonalFood Linkup, I’ve shared my blackberry meringue pie with her…though there’s probably another half dozen other blackberry recipes on Only Crumbs Remain which I could share with her….I seem to have gone a little blackberry mad!
        Anyhow, I’ve managed to steer clear of blackberries for this bake and shared my Cream Horns with your linky (obviously GBBO inspired!) 😉
        Angela x

  5. Oh great..some good ones again this month. I’ll link up later on.
