I’m a food writer! From Essex, living in Sheffield. 

I love doughnuts, that peach from Call Me By Your Name, trash TV and ice cream. Commission me to write/talk for you about food, pop culture, art and queerness. I’m here for interviews, reporting, comment and recipe development: I have a fortnightly baking column in the Guardian’s food supplement, Feast.

Bylines for: The Guardian, Vice, Elle, Eater, Food 52, The Independent, Grazia, BBC Good Food magazine, The Observer, Suitcase magazine and The Financial Times.

Profiled in: The New York Times, The Telegraph, The Times, Jarry magazine and more.

Radio: guest on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and podcasts such as Book Shambles, Diana Henry’s At the Kitchen Table, and Dolly Alderton’s Love Stories. Presented BBC Radio 4 documentaries Food in the Frame and A Girl’s Own Story.

I also have a sporadic newsletter, The Concept of Waffles, which I started in September 2017 and has just under 7,000 subscribers.
