My name is Jacob, I’m a food writer based in Edinburgh.

I’ve written for a range of publications including Daily Meal and Mashed, covering topics that include everything from common cooking mistakes to the best wines made in monasteries. On occasion, I write about topics outside of the food world, but I always find my way back to the kitchen in the end.

Self-published work also forms a portion of my portfolio. For example, “A Study in Shortcrust Self-portraiture", a short piece I wrote under the guidance of Itamar Srulovich.

If you want to discuss working together, hear my thoughts on Edinburgh's restaurant scene or just fancy debating the perfect negroni recipe, please don't hesitate to contact me.
