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.

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 hangouts 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
