Food has been my main profession for more than 15 years.

Jen eating chiffon cake - the next delicious thing

I’m a Grand Jury member of the Academy of Chocolate Awards and a specialist judge for the Great Taste Awards, The International Chocolate Awards, the Quality Food Awards and others. I used to get paid to design food – or reject it! – for the UK head offices of international retailers.

I’ve been running food tours of London for more than 16 years and everywhere I go I spend days researching where the best places to eat are, and have been known to spend over £100 just in bakeries and patisseries in a three-day period.

I’ll be sharing what I’m eating when I’m at home in London, and what I’m eating when I visit somewhere new. Sometimes I’m given things to try. I’ll only share them with you if I recommend them and I’ll make sure it’s clear if they were a gift.

Are you hungry now?

Each week on a Wednesday I’ll share the most delicious things I tried in the previous week. These will mostly be chocolate, pastries and desserts, but restaurant meals, recipes and things available by post, too.
