Selected Writings


Food on Foot: A history of Eating on Trails and in the Wild – My first book tells the food stories of explorers throughout history and across geographies (Rowman & Littlefield, May 2017).


Bashir & Bashir – A visual essay published in the May 2016 issue of Gastronomica [Download PDF] tells the story of a cheese maker in Ladakh.


The Beer Harvest – My article on the outstanding grape ale of Valtellina and the changing beer drinking habits in Italy. (The Smart Set)


The Renaissance of Hungarian Food – A travel piece about rediscovering the food and wine scene of Hungary. (The Smart Set)


Topinambour: The root that’s native to nowhereThe knobby story of topinambour which takes its name from the people of Tupinambà tribe who passed through France in the 17th century, confusing generations of botanists, cooks, and people of Jerusalem who find it under a different name in a restaurant menu for the first time.


Rare Recipes for an Italian Futurist PartyThe story of futurist cuisine which was ideological, absurd, and above all artistic. It banned forks and knives, incorporated perfume and music, and often required chemistry and sculpture skills.


Taste and ageing: Loss of taste or loss of trust? – A chapter I wrote for the book Space, Taste and Affect, will be published in 2019 by Emily Falconer.


Mustard: A Global History – My second book is on mustard…spicy, stimulating and full of stories. The manuscript is finished. The book will be published in 2019.
