Going on my local milk round under the cover of darkness, experiencing a bustling fish market at the crack of dawn, or baking bread with skilled artisans, I love uncovering new plot-to-plate stories that explore our relationship with food. These stories offer a way into our culture and heritage as much as daily politics and the environment.
As an active member of The Guild of Food Writers, I’m always on the lookout for revolutions emerging across an ever-changing and vibrant food scene, and I’m proud to champion producers and chefs putting sustainability at the top of their food philosophy.
I’m a regular guest on BBC Radio Devon‘s foodie hour, organiser of Dartmouth Food Festival’s Eat Your Words programme and food editor of MANOR magazine, plus I regularly contribute to many other publications with a fresh take on food and drink.
From ocean health to innovative ways of creating a more circular economy, I write authoritatively about the environment.
Often getting stuck in alongside traditional craftspeople, watersports instructors and inspirational entrepreneurs, I tell the fascinating stories about people and their connection to the landscape.
