Time for a little (actually quite big) update…

Main_bigUpdate

Dear diary,

I feel like it’s been a long time since we last spoke and I want to apologise for that – we didn’t plan for it to be this way but things have been incredibly busy since getting back from the U.S. and we’ve been sworn to secrecy on some majorly exciting projects… But finally we can reveal all!!

Firstly, we have a new studio!! We’ve teased it in the last couple of FridgeCams, but we have moved into a much larger and nicer space than before. With a growing team and big ambitions, we think this is the place to help us take SORTEDFood to the next level. From sexy new kitchens for filming, to a place to host some events and just hang out… We think this place does it all!

Secondly, we have a new website! Over the last few months Barry’s younger brother Josh has joined us to get the website up to scratch, and we think he’s done a great job! Combining the blog with the recipe site, plus adding some great new features such as recipe playlists, which give us the ability to highlight all your favourite recipes to the rest of the community… The website is really turning into a fantastic place to hang out and chat about food! Along the same lines, we also have the lovely Hannah joining us in a couple of weeks time to become our website editor… Expect a LOT of great new editorial content coming your way soon!

Thirdly… and this is a big one… We are going to be featured in YouTube’s big promotional campaign over the next 5 weeks in the UK! YouTube have only chosen two people to feature this year and we’re following in the footsteps of Zoella and the Slow Mo Guys from last year’s campaign, which is just crazy!

We’ve spent the last few weeks working with YouTube to shoot a load of adverts that are going to be placed online and all over London in tube and train stations and digital billboards across the city… We still can’t believe it!! If you see any of the adverts around, please tweet us a picture of you with them!!

YouTube are also helping us beef up our Big Nights In with some special guests, more ways that you can get involved and even some stuff out and about on the streets… It’s going to be unbelievable!

As if that wasn’t enough, YouTube gave us a chance to demonstrate our powerful musical skills in a new parody video… and have it played in the scariest and craziest setting ever… That’s all I’m saying for now, but we hope you enjoy it!!

Now whilst all this has been overwhelmingly exciting, it’s also taken a large chunk of time that we hadn’t planned for… Which has meant that our Lost and Hungry travels haven’t progressed as quickly as we’d originally anticipated. We’re aiming to get back out exploring again in 2016!

So with all this going on, plus a few more tricks up our sleeves, the next few months and beyond look incredibly exciting… and honestly, it’s all thanks to your support.

We can’t thank each and everyone of you enough for making SORTEDfood what it is, your conversations, recipes, jokes are what make SORTEDfood so special.

So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Love Jamie and the SORTEDfood team

    This sounds absolutely amazing! Are you guys also planning on showing us around the new studio space? Because it looks awesome. :)

  • Joe Cercy

    Two thumbs up, boys!

  • Gerrit Bechtold

    You have come a long way,guys. Now you are at a great new place, enjoy the work there and give us more great food, fun and heart.
    Waiting for it 👏

  • Maggie Taylor

    Congratulations guys!! I can’t think of anyone who deserves this success more. Thank YOU for making so many people around the world feel like part of a tight knit group friends. I haven’t seen a single other online community that is so fun, silly, actually informative, and effortlessly easy to be around.

  • Tracey

    Congratulations! So very happy for you. It’s amazing watching your channel grow 😁 look forward to seeing the Youtube campaign ads 😁

  • Emily Eldridge

    Congratulations Sortedfood boys

  • Christien

    Ohhh this is so exciting! Well, it’s sort of a shame to move, but it’s such a big leap forward. Congratz on your progress and I hope to see Sorted grow even more until people can be united and set their differences aside for one time to enjoy good food together.

  • Esther

    Yay!! This is probably one of the only times I’ve ever going to be excited for ads. Super glad Sorted is gaining even more recognition and support. It’s probably a good thing I’m not currently in London – I wouldn’t be able to stop gawking and pointing excitedly at each advert!

    Cogratulations to Hannah for joining the Sorted team!

    Looking forward to watching the new parody video! Food music <3
    Actually, about that. Jamie, why haven't you convinced Mike to write a tribute to food using one of Taylor Swift's songs yet?

    Congrats guys!

  • Mees Patti

    I know I’ve been watching since your logo was yellow and black. I couldn’t see then where it could go for you, but now I see that you are making your own food studio. Do you aim to have one that rivals the food channel on cable TV? I know you could do it. Watching the developments of a you tube business is one of the most entertaining aspects of you tube. I want to see you guys eat in Singapore next year.

  • Marinette Solas

    Congratulations!! You definitely deserve all these, for you have given so much, your time, efforts and all the love. You all are truly an inspiration to a lot of people. Excited for all the new things. Sending love from the Philippines!

    This is totally awesome news, you guys! I just wish I was still in London to see your lovely mugs all over the place! 😉 Keep it up, you are doing fabulous work!! xx CC in LA
