Work With Us


Hello, we are East Midlands bloggers Chris and Ali Durning. A husband and wife team from Leicester, England.

We began travelling together back in 2008. Through the bargain deals with low cost airlines, we were able to cover most of Europe in a short space of time. Regular trips away became normal as did sampling the cuisine of each country that we had the opportunity to visit. Food is a shared passion and by combining both travel and food together, was born.

Our journeys have taken us all the way from Singapore to South America. Some incredible sights, experiences and dishes have made for inspiring subjects to cover on this website. Our website is here to provide inspiration. If you are thinking of starting out travelling, currently travel and are in need of tips or even are after new ideas in the kitchen – Artisan Traveller has you covered.

Our website is dedicated to covering travel and food with an aim to provide tips, restaurant and brand reviews plus guides for our audience. Our readers are an average of 60% women from the UK, USA and Europe aged 25 to 40 plus who love travel, food and entertainment.

We are active on social media through Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Facebook. We are also active on Pinterest with our profile achieving over 1 million unique monthly views.
