I'm a freelance journalist for the nationals and mags, including the FT, The Times, Telegraph, Evening Standard, MrPorter, BBC Good Food mag, Olive mag. I currently work part-time as I’ve two young children.
Before freelancing, I was the Food Editor at Metro newspaper from 2005 to 2013, founding Good Taste, a six-page weekly pull-out, which became one of the most popular reads in the paper back in its halcyon days. The section frequently broke stories the broadsheets followed.
I've also founded the Young British Foodie awards (the YBFs), a major British awards, celebrating fresh new food and drink craftsmanship. It was born from an urge to recognise diverse talent in a time when there was a firm focus on the establishment and frustratingly little beyond. It's been covered in the media prolifically and continues being celebrated as a seminal movement today. One of the few to have a stringent judging process, the YBFs' finalists actually meet the judges to show their work. Arbiters include culinary nobles, from Yotam Ottolenghi to Thomasina Miers. www.the-ybfs.com
Recently, my views have been heard on Radio 5 and BBC discussing meat-eating and veganism: I also do talks, consult on big food brands, and copyright for business including Unilever.
