Adamantia Velonis

I am the Founder, Editor and Culinary Writer behind Marmalade + Kindness, and HARVEST Magazine. My platforms invite people to find mindfulness and creativity through the cooking process to manage difficult emotions. HARVEST was launched in December 2020, as a quarterly food magazine devoted to mindful cooking. It's made in Oxford, inspired by the world and created by an all female editorial and freelance team. Outside of this, I write feature articles and contribute recipes to a number of food and well-being titles on the topic of mindful cooking. I am a certified mindfulness teacher and work in the management consulting industry.

Commercial interests

I regularly commission writing for HARVEST Magazine, and am happy to receive pitches for specific sections. I am interested in hearing about artisan food products with female founders/owners. I'm available to develop content and recipes (including images) for magazines and food businesses. My niche is Greek cooking and plant-based/vegan recipes. My food philosophy is centred on seasonal, organic, local produce and slow cooking techniques. Get in touch to see my portfolio of work and to discuss how I can create recipes that will help you emotionally connect with your customers.
