Who is Sudi

I am a discerningly greedy, ever curious journalist with more than 20 years’ experience writing  on food, restaurants and travel for print and digital publications both in the UK and worldwide.

My subject matter varies from Alain Ducasse’s favourite Paris destinations to the revival of Nonyan cuisine in Singapore; from the emergence of DIY dairies to the best chocolate shops in London.  I’ve written about top and emerging chefs worldwide, including the first English language feature on Massimo Bottura and “Modena’s Masterpiece” Osteria Francescana for TIME Magazine and, way back, one of the first features on Rene Redzepi and the then new Nordic Cuisine for American Express’s Centurion.

More recently, I’ve looked at why I believe Anne-Sophic Pic and Bjorn Frantzen are the most trailblazing chefs right now,  tracked all the most interesting Noma luminaries running their own places in Copenhagen, explored the best hotels for food and art in Europe where artists pay in kind with artworks: charted the rise of vintage sherry and sherry pairing menus; and the most chic restaurants with gardens in London.

I also create content for clients including Seven Dials and Carnaby Street besides consumer and restaurant brands.

This summer, I am launching food writing workshops/experiences in Bermondsey.

I am also the co-founder of Women of Food, and, currently compiling a database of all the female cheffes running kitchens in the UK.

I am the author of bestselling “How to be a Better Foodie“, the book that kick-started Clerkenwell Boy’s interest in food when he first arrived in London, and, “Flipping Good: pancakes around the world”.  Both books have been published in the US and Australia too.
