Most of my journalism is about food, though I also review books on a wide range of subjects, including History, Biography and Film (I was a historian and film critic before I was a food writer). And I write an occasional op-ed piece.
For twelve years, I wrote 'The Kitchen Thinker' column in The Sunday Telegraph magazine (Stella). Before that, for five years, I wrote a weekly food column in The New Statesman.
Here's a piece where I try to explain what food writing means to me: 'Everyone needs a companion at the kitchen table'.
I've written and reviewed for a wide range of publications in the U.K. and U.S. including The Guardian, The London Review of Books, The New York Times, The Sunday Times, The Wall Street Journal, Elle Decor, Harper's, The New Republic, The New Yorker, The New Yorker Page Turner Blog, Toast, The Happy Reader, The Times Literary Supplement.
I'll include links to a few pieces here. I don't know which periodicals you subscribe to, so apologies in advance for any paywalls.
