Hello! My name’s Jackie – welcome to my food blog. I’m a freelance food writer, photographer, private caterer and current Leiths Diploma student, based in London in the UK. I love to tell stories with food and I hope you enjoy reading them just as much.
My roots in food go far back – I was weaned off breast-milk and onto chicken soup. Somebody lovely once said that I am “a woman who knows her food”, somebody else equally lovely once called me an “Asian gone wild” – I can think of no better way to sum me up. I have strong opinions which I’m not afraid to share; honesty and fairness go hand-in-hand with me. I’ve eaten at some of the best restaurants in the world and am on a continual mission to seek out wonderful food, whether it’s street food tucked away down the back of an alley or Michelin starred and widely-lauded. I do not discriminate as to what or where, I only care that it’s delicious.
I have a BA Jt. Hons in American & English Studies, have lived in the UK, US & Asia, and have travelled extensively. I freelance for various people around the world – you can find links to my work here. Unfortunately I am no longer able to take on any unpaid work except for in truly exceptional circumstances, I do not accept unsolicited guest posts and I didn’t think I’d have to make it this clear but I receive a lot of offers to send me products from the US and Canada. Whilst I appreciate the thought, if you are unable to ship said items to the UK please do not contact me – I don’t want to waste your time or mine! If, however, you are interested in my services, please do get in touch with your requirements and I’ll do my best to help in any way that I can.
