Writing

A mixture of stories, mostly about food and food-related travel stuff, from producer profiles to more general interviews with women and men working in the food and restaurant industry; cookbook reviews; community projects; food trends; eating out guides and food trails. I love food and drink and enjoy eating and drinking it, but I mostly enjoy covering the people behind it and the stories surrounding the food itself – how it was made, why it was made (and how it can be made more sustainably), how did it get there, who it was made by and why they wanted to make it in the first place. There are also some stories involving Impact Hub Brixton, the shared workspace that I’m a part of and was ‘storyteller’ for over a year between August ’16-December ’17.

This area is divided into specific ‘food,’ ‘travel,’ and ‘other’ sections for ease.

Please take a look around and if you are interested in commissioning me, please get in touch using the form on the ‘about’ section here.
