EPISODE 35: ROSIE BIRKETT: FOOD STYLIST, COOKERY WRITER & CHEF
My guest today is Rosie Birkett
Rosie is a food writer, food stylist and author. She has written 3 cookbooks and has been writing about chefs, restaurants, and food since 2008.
Rosie’s recipes and food styling have appeared on the cover of BBC Good Food Magazine Olive Magazine, and been featured in The Telegraph, Red magazine , Grazia, In Style and Guardian Cook.
Of her brilliant book : a lot on her plate – it was said by none other than Michel Roux Jr:
“In a culinary world full of froths, foams and smears this is a book for those that love real food. It s a breath of fresh air and a feast for the eyes, full of mouth-watering recipes to excite the palate and take you to a gastronomic heaven. “
Rosie genuinely makes delicious food and her passion is clear. I love the breadth of her food, meaning she is equally as happy with a bacon sandwich as she is with the best spaghetti vongole Venice has to offer. There’s nothing faddy about her food, it’s just honest, delicious grub. That’s not to say it doesn’t look fantastic, because it does. Rosie’s food styling is gorgeous and makes you want to five head first into everything she posts safe in the knowledge it will taste as good as it looks.
