I am a food writer, food historian and professional cook. I have written on food and drink for publications including the Daily Telegraph, the Independent and Country Life; commercial clients include brands such as Doves Farm and Lurpak; and I regularly write for Borough Market for whom I am also a recipe developer, demonstration cook and host the hugely popular Borough Market Cookbook Club. Broadcast work includes being the featured food historian on BBC TV's Rip Off Britain, Food and Inside the Factory.

I am former co-Chair of The Guild of Food Writers. My debut book The Vinegar Cupboard won the Jane Grigson Trust Award 2018 and was published in March 2019.
