I grow, cook, eat out, seek the best food producers at home and abroad and write about food and related issues. My background is diverse, including design and horticulture, but that little food devil refuses to get off my shoulder. It’s led me to Cordon Bleu cookery school, food guide writing, courses in ice-cream and cheese making, bakery stints and food history research projects. My heart is in London but my allotment keeps my feet in the mud to ensure I never lose contact with the importance of the food we produce. Blogging about food is one outlet for my passion and it allows me to connect with others who feel as I do.
