I am a journalist, editor, TV presenter and author based in London.
I specialise in food, drink, travel, lifestyle and human interest features. My work has been published in the Financial Times, Evening Standard, Guardian, Sunday Times, Times, Sunday Telegraph, Observer, Olive, Glamour, Red, Grazia and Psychologies in the UK, as well as the Globe and Mail and The Australian.
My next cookbook, Lisbon: recipes from the heart of Portugal, will be published in the UK, USA and Australia in June 2017. My previous cookbooks were Postcards from Greece: recipes from across the Greek seas, published in September 2014 and Istanbul: recipes from the heart of Turkey, which came out in July 2013.
I am one of the food and drinks experts on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch TV programme, with Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer.
For two years, I was recipe columnist for Healthy Magazine. For four years, I wrote a column for the Evening Standard's ES magazine, about restaurants and bars in London. For two years I wrote a breakfast recipe column for Guardian Weekend magazine. For five years I was editor of Soho House's two quarterly magazines, Cookhouse, about food, and House Tonic, about drink, distributed in the UK, Germany, America, Canada, South Africa and Australia.
I have hosted events and developed bespoke content, recipes and drinks for brands such DeLonghi, Russell Hobbs, PG Tips, Diageo and Brancott Estate wines, and made videos for companies such as Waitrose and low alcohol fair trade wine drink, Keep Light and Be Fair.
For a select group of clients, I also offer tailor-made menu consultancy for restaurants and bars.
I am always happy to discuss new projects.
