Hi and welcome to my site! I’m Debbie - the Pixel Chef – a freelance photographer, media creative and lover of food, walking, yoga and cycling.
On the Pixel Chef Blog you’ll find lots of my photos along with recipes for cooking up digital manipulations. You'll also find real recipes - with more photos - to help you cook up a storm in the kitchen!
From 2020 I am also offering support to artists, small businesses and community to help them with their online presence - from setting up a Blog or website to help with social media. If you have a project that you would like help with then please get in touch!
I must go down to the sea again!
Here is a little photo story from last week! We finally made it to the beach and got to swim in the sea! It was one of those lovely, warm, late summer days that feel like a real bonus – particularly in these dark COVID days. Our go-to beach of choice has always been Wells,…
Blueberry and banana cake

Blustery morning walk
I have got out of the habit recently of going for my morning walk and I woke up this morning realising just how much I had missed it! I don’t mind admitting that I was in a bit of a grump yesterday – it has not been an easy week and I was generally feeling…
