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 and connect to people, history and culture. Though I eat food for fuel when it is necessary, I much prefer to eat for flavour whenever possible.
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 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 and vinegars 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, and how to use food as a source of knowledge, connection and pleasure. I write in hopes of shining a light on that which inspires me; namely the people, stories and communities behind the food.
Thanks for reading. x
