Please visit my portfolio page to see more of my work.

After a career working for publishing and creative agencies, I followed my passion for food and retrained at The Edinburgh School of Food and Wine. I worked as a private chef in the beautiful wilds of Perthshire but decided to swap the hills for city life, and returned to London to work as a food stylist. I’ve since styled food for editorial, worked on TV programmes and assisted many top stylists on editorial, marketing and food commercial shoots.

Food is my absolute passion and nothing excites me more than discovering new flavours and inspiring places to eat. The list of must-go-to eateries is ever-growing… When I’m not cooking I love to walk and escape back to the hills whenever I get the opportunity.

Recipe testing and development
I offer a recipe developing, writing and testing service. I am passionate about writing recipes that are nutritious, taste delicious and look great too, but are easily accessible so anyone can make and enjoy them.

Private chef
I am available for hire as a private chef and have experience of working in family homes and holiday locations. I love devising simple but delicious menus; allow me to work with you to create flavoursome and beautiful looking food using fresh and seasonal ingredients. I’m a flexible and versatile cook so I’m happy to cater for any special dietary requirements required.
