ABOUT ME …
After an English Literature degree followed by a diploma at Leiths School of Food & Wine, I found my way into the cookery departments of women’s magazines as a recipe tester and on to edit the food & wine pages, winning IPC’s Young Journalist of the Year Award at the age of 23.
I launched my career as a food stylist shortly after, creating beautiful images for cookbooks, along with recipe development and packaging, for clients such as Marks and Spencers.
Longing to feed ‘real’ people again, I sought out a ‘stage’ at Stevie Parle’s Dock Kitchen and spent a month cooking for the Kings of Leon on their UK tour, until once again, I was lured back into the world of magazines when an opening came up at Waitrose Food Illustrated Magazine as Food Editor. This gave me the opportunity to write and commission food content and work with many renowned food writers and chefs, such as Diana Henry, Claudia Roden, Sophie Grigson and Ottolenghi. I left this role to dedicate myself to writing my own cookbooks and dabbled with starting my own speciality coffee business.
I now take in consultancy projects for various clients. I worked with ckbk - a digital start up dubbed “the Spotify of cookbooks” as their Digital Food & Content editor and am now developing various menus for cafe style businesses.
