Ed Smith is a cook and writer based in London. In 2012 he left a career as a City lawyer in pursuit of a life in food. Ed retrained as a chef and explored a variety of avenues, but has now settled (sort of) on documenting the best elements of every part of the food chain. He writes for a number of national papers and magazines, curates his well regarded and award winning blog, Rocket & Squash, and is currently writing his first recipe book. Always hungry, he devours words and food.
Ed was shortlisted as 'Best Cookery Writer' at the 2015 Fortnum and Mason Food Awards, and won 'Best Online Restaurant Writer' at the same event.
