Hi! I’m Luke, the guy behind Barely Normal.

I’m a blues playing, pixel slinging, food nerd, that is happy when working on a concept (preferably with a glass of wine in hand), and whether it’s in the kitchen, or outside, I’m fascinated about how things work.

Blogging Policy:
I am grateful for every opportunity that comes my way due to my blog. However, as my blog is a very personal representation of me, I have put a few guidelines in place:

I am mostly interested in events that focus on food, interesting experiences, and gadgets. If I do attend, then I will use my discretion as to whether or not it is suitable to go on the blog, after all, this is my happy place. If I am invited to an event, please ensure I am able to bring my wife with me.

Product Reviews:
Assuming the product is food/experience related, I will be more than happy to test it. A blog post is not guaranteed, and if I do blog about it I will disclose where I received the product from, and that it was a gift.

Restaurant and Accommodation reviews:
I will happily visit / review your restaurant / hotel / guesthouse, ideally in the greater Cape Town area and surrounds. Please note: I don’t do negative reviews – this blog is my happy space, and I only share things I’m fanatical about, it’s what gives credibility. If I do share the review on my blog, I will disclose that I was invited to enjoy the meal as a guest, and did not pay for it.
