I am a food and travel writer, recipe writer and magazine editor. I have worked freelance for the past 10 years or so, with bylines in Food & Travel, The Guardian, Pulp, Sainsbury's Magazine, Waitrose Food, Olive, delicious and others. I am the editor of Pit magazine, which is a food mag with its roots in live fire cooking. I was thrilled to win Food and Drink Editor of the Year British Society of Magazine Editors Awards 2020.
