After a career as a tv producer - working for both the BBC and C4 - Diana started writing about food after she had her first child. She has now written nine books (her tenth will be out in September 2016) and has won many awards, both for her column and her books. She loves literature as much as food - she studied English Literature at Oxford University before doing post graduate studies in journalism at City University, London - and will certainly have her head stuck in a book if she's not cooking.
As well as The Telegraph she writes for House and Garden, Delicious and Red. In the States she contributes to The Art of Eating and Saveur. Diana also reports for the BBC Radio 4's Food Programme. She lives in London and was born in Northern Ireland.
