Sophie Knox Richmond

I am a freelance copywriter (specialising in food and nutrition), recipe tester and developer from Kent. I have worked with individuals, brands, chefs, publishing houses and recipe box companies and have experience in a broad range of cuisines, diets and budgets. Having studied for a BA in English Language and Literature and a MSc in Eating Disorders and Clinical Nutrition, I decided to pursue my culinary dreams at Leiths. I now combine my love of writing with my lifelong interest in food. Living in the Garden of England for over ten years has nurtured a long-standing fascination of food and flavour. I believe in good quality ingredients and supporting local suppliers and sustainable producers. I am full of passion and creativity, and relish discovering new ingredients, recipes, products or foodie haunts. Previous work has included blog and website copywriting, corporate brochures, menu copywriting, product copywriting, food PR, food writing, recipe testing and development.
