WordPress Blog Theme

Jo Medhurst is a cook with some incredible credentials. While training she did a summer placement at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons in Oxfordshire with Raymond Blanc. Of course, the proof is in the pudding. I have eaten some of her carrot cake and I can confirm the woman knows how to cook.

Jo wanted to set up a food blog where she could share her recipes with the world. She previously tried to setup her own blog through Wix, but found it not suitable for her needs. She approached me to see if I could help. I suggested she use WordPress instead.

WordPress blog

I designed and created a custom WordPress theme for Jo’s blog. The theme includes a recipe plugin to collect all her recipes. Each recipe also has an easy print functionality should anyone want to do that.

Structured Data

The recipes are  coded using Google Structured Data for Recipes. Structured data makes it easier for search engines to determine the nature of page content. In this case the structured content adds extra information to indicate these are recipes. Without this extra data a search engine sees a collection of words, without knowing what they are as a whole.

I have really enjoyed meeting and working with Joke.  I am a total technophobe, and Joke has been very patient and very helpful,  guiding me very professionally and sensitively.  The website is perfect for me right now, I love the clean look of it,  and it is very easy to use.
