Meet the team & contact details


SARAH HARDY, Editor | | 07711 446054 | 21 Market Place, Dereham, Norfolk NR19 2AX
Feast Norfolk is run by well known Norfolk journalist Sarah Hardy who’s been shouting about the joy of great food and drink for years. She cut her teeth on the Eastern Daily Press (when it was the biggest selling regional morning newspaper in England), was the launch writer on EDP Norfolk, head of features at the EDP for 10 years and, most recently, was editor of the lifestyle monthly magazine, Places & Faces – all right here in Norfolk. She is known as being pretty greedy, very nosey indeed, and a real supporter of small independent businesses. Her cookery skills were just about killed by having two children who, respectively, ate a lot and virtually nothing. Sarah usually gets too fond of the people she writes about (no, not in a naughty way!) and would class many in the food world as friends. She was always inspired by the late Paul Whittome of the Hoste Arms in Burnham Market who was so encouraging and never, ever settled for second best!

Favourite dish: Got to be a Cromer crab salad, hasn’t it, with buttery potatoes, too. And masses of fresh strawberries with a scoop or two of Lakenham Creamery ice cream for afters.

EMMA OUTTEN, Deputy Editor | | 07899 904828
Sarah is joined by assistant editor Emma Outten, a former feature writer on the Eastern Daily Press who used to edit the Good Health features section every Monday and who has retained a healthy interest in good nutrition! Most recently she was assistant editor at Places & Faces magazine and interviews and profiles are a speciality. She’s looking forward to being first with food news and writing from one end of the food chain to the other, from the organic farmer out in the country to the launch of the latest restaurant in the city centre.

​Favourite dish: has to be anything that doesn’t have cinnamon in it (long story and probably best not to ask!)
