After a career working for publishing and creative agencies, I followed my passion for food and retrained at The Edinburgh School of Food and Wine. I worked as a private chef in the beautiful wilds of Perthshire but decided to swap the hills for city life, and returned to London to work as a food stylist and chef.
Food is my absolute passion and nothing excites me more than cooking new recipes, shopping for seasonal ingredients at colourful and bustling markets, and discovering inspirational places to eat. In between food styling work and recipe writing I teach at a wonderful cookery school, Food at 52, who run a range of adult classes – from Thai and Vietnamese to vegetarian, Spanish and Southern Indian – in a homely and relaxed setting.
When I’m not cooking I love to run in Epping Forest or escape back to the hills for a hike whenever I get the opportunity.
