I am the features editor on Waitrose Food magazine – looking after The Food List section and features – and also a freelance food journalist. Previously, I worked at Seven for three years as a digital editor for Sainsbury’s, writing for Sainsbury’s magazine and launching The Artful Diner, an online magazine for the restaurant group D&D London.
From September 2009 until March 2011 I was the food and drink reporter on The Grocer. In 2008/09 I took a postgraduate diploma in magazine journalism at City University, London.
Food journalism has been a natural progression for me; I grew up on a Cornish beef farm surrounded by good food, a star cook in the form of my mum and a hardworking dad. I am still passionate about the countryside and rural issues, but live by the Thames in West London.
In a life before journalism I read history at the University of Nottingham and spent summers teaching English in Poland, working in Germany and making an almighty mess in my mum’s farmhouse kitchen.
