I am a journalist, writer and editor specialising in all matters domestic, from food, homes and gardens to modern manners, dogs and decluttering.
I write regularly for national newspapers and magazines, including a weekly French Exchange column in The Daily Telegraph, delicious magazine, Sainsbury’s magazine, The Daily Mail, The Guardian, The Independent, Country Life and BBC Good Food.
My latest book, Notes from a Small Kitchen Island is due to be published on July 7th 2022 by Penguin Michael Joseph.
This is the book of my heart, filled with essays and recipes that made me just as I made them, over 40 years in the kitchen.
