There isn’t a place in the world that I wouldn’t like to visit. No country or city, town, or village that I wouldn’t explore if given the opportunity. But like most other people, I don’t have deep pockets, a large inheritance to cash in, or ample leisure time to indulge my fantasy adventures. Instead, I use food as a means to explore, connect and show the world, its people and the wonderful foods that grow from it, to my children.
Hi, I’m Adrienne. I’m a trained dance anthropologist (yes that’s a thing), now food and culture writer. Born in Cleveland Ohio where I learned to embrace my Jewish-meets-Texan heritage, I moved to England in 2006 via three formative years spent roaming the desert in Albuquerque New Mexico and a few short months in Granada, Spain. You can find me here in London, typing away at the keyboard in my tiny home office, sifting through my ever-growing collection of spices in my (slightly bigger) kitchen, or attempting to grow edible things out of my postage-stamp-sized garden.
I’ve spent the last twelve years working with cookery schools, chefs, publishing houses small businesses and magazines, all around the themes of where food comes from, how can we make it accessible to everyone, and how it can be used as a powerful tool to teach us about the world and each other. As a freelance writer, it is my desire to help highlight areas or aspects of food and the people who make it that might otherwise go unseen. I also help individuals and companies find their voice through my copywriting services.
And, where there is time (which there seems to be less and less of in the current climate) I publish family-friendly recipes that explore aspects of this great big world in tiny, bite-sized pieces right here on my website. What I can’t show my children by travel, I try to show them by way of their plates and their senses, in the hopes of connecting to something bigger than just lunch.
Thanks for reading. x
