Claire Davie has been writing her blog Melbourne Gastronome since 2007, and spoke at the first Eat Drink Blog conference in 2010 in Melbourne. While she doesn’t update Melbourne Gastronome these days as often as she would like, the blog has had nearly 2 million visitors since its inception.

She works full time in the legal profession and dabbles in occasional freelance food and travel writing and reviewing, for publishers that include the Guardian, Hardie Grant’s Cooked website, the Deck of Secrets and Fairfax.

As a blogger and lawyer with consumer law expertise, she is passionate and opinionated about the legalities and ethics that surround blogging.

Her heritage is Anglo and Italian, and she absolutely despises pineapple on pizza.

A great big thanks to Claire for speaking at Eat Drink Blog 5!
