A Sydney-based food and travel blog written by Sara McCleary.

Belly Rumbles began in November 2009 after I started reading food blogs when planning a trip to New York.  From humble beginnings as an online diary, Belly Rumbles has continued to grow and evolve into one of Sydney’s most consistent and well known single-voice food and travel blogs.

Over 300 Belly Rumble articles have been published to date with new original content posted 3-4 times a week. Articles categories include: recipes, restaurant reviews, product road tests and travel stories.

Belly Rumbles is attracting a growing number of engaged readers who enjoy following my adventures in food and travel.

About Sara

Sara has a deep passion for both food and travel.

With previous experience in both the food and travel industry including front-of-house in various Sydney restaurants, a sales job with a large food corporation and as a manager in one of Sydney’s leading backpacker travel agencies, I have a good insight into the real work that goes on behind the scenes to make a good meal or a great trip happen.

I started to cook at an early stage learning from my mum, aunt and grandmother. Recently I have been rediscovering some traditional Latvian recipes and building on my love of Japanese ingredients.

I am addicted to travel. Having grown up travelling and living in both Germany and Italy my feet are always itchy and I hunger for new places to explore.  I am a frequent visitor to Japan for work and have incredible memories of Manhattan. I love you NYC.

My experience in developing the blog means I am comfortable working with PR companies, brands, restaurants, hotels and the travel industry.

My blog is a full-time consuming passion.
