My guest today is Ed Smith.

You may know him by his pen name – Rocket and Squash. 

Ed gave up a high flying career in law around 6 years ago to pursue a career in food and I think this is a good listen for anyone thinking about changing career whether into the world of food or beyond. 

Ed is the author of the hugely popular and award winning website Rocket and Squash – which is sort of a smorgasbord of delicious things from recipes, to restaurant reviews and cookery news. He has now written 2 cookbooks to much acclaim and regularly writes for a multitude of publications. And in 2015 Fortnum and Mason Food and Drink Awards named him ‘Best Online Restaurant Writer’ and shortlisted him for ‘Best Cookery Writer’. Which is all pretty impressive!

If you’re listening and you haven’t yet left a review – now’s your chance! It really is quick to do. I know people bang on about it a lot but 5* ratings and subscribing to the podcast really does boost it in the rankings and it really does help me out – so thank you!
