Fiona Sims

I’m a food, drink, and travel writer with 25 years’ experience writing for the UK's top newspapers and magazines, among them The Times, The Guardian, The Observer, Delicious, Decanter, Conde Nast Traveller, Elite Traveler, National Geographic Food, Club Oenologique, and The Caterer. Along the way I have interviewed many of the world's top chefs, food and drink personalities and hoteliers, from Gordon Ramsay and Alain Ducasse, to Ferran Adrià and Wolfgang Puck. I have also had four books published, Guide to Wine (Parragon) and Wine Made Simple (Marks & Spencer), The Boat Cookbook (Bloomsbury) and The Boat Drinks Book (Bloomsbury). I also have extensive editing and commissioning experience, from deputy editor of an international luxury hotel and restaurant magazine, Inside Hotels, and editor for five years of the Isle of Wight’s premier tourism magazine, Island Visitor, to editor of a book for Rolls-Royce, called Pantheon, commissioning some of the country's top journalists in food, drink, travel, and leisure.
