My work


Japanese whisky, gourmet doughnuts, the best street food in Morocco and what it's like to compete in MasterChef - the list of what I've written about over the years is pretty mouth-watering.


I'm a versatile writer and frequently turn my hand to features, interviews with celebrities (such as Jamie Oliver, Tom Kerridge, and Nadiya Hussain), restaurant reviews and recipes. I've also done video.


Food is my passion, but I also love travel (I won Best River Cruise feature at the Cruise Media Awards 2018) and have written about gardening, property, music and more.
