Sian originally set up Bone White China in 2011 after missing her adventures as one of the Waitrose Kitchen team. She has since been joined by a great gang of writers and eaters. She is mum of two and a born and bred Cambridge girl.


Alex is the healthy living, nature-loving, mama-of-two behind Bone White China, she has fallen in love with Cambridgeshire life after relocating from East London to start her family. She loves a plant-based treat, and a gin or two of course.


Charley is our resident fashion mama - she is ever chic and stylish. Her husband, Leo, is one of half of the Steak and Honour duo hence 'The Chef's Wife and her boys Sidney and Miller are the cutest, and best dressed, fellas in town.

Charlotte B

Charlotte B is our baking goddess - she whips up all kinds of magic in the kitchen and we are always around to help her taste test her fantastic recipes. Her daughter, Clara is as cute as a button and owns an array of knitted attire that makes us weep with jealousy.

As well as blogging we also host regular mama gatherings - sometimes just handouts over coffee and cake and sometimes a creative class and making session with food. All welcome - with babies or as time to yourself. Find out more
