Annie’s food journey started with a children’s cook book and some rather ‘interesting’ attempts at recreating the glorious looking recipes on the glossy pages within!
Years later, knowingly a food lover, but curious to understand more about the science of food, Annie studied Food Science at The University of Nottingham, graduating with both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. Her final studies then took Annie to the University of Bath to focus on Science Communication and indulge her love of writing.
During this time Annie experienced wondrous pockets of insight into the food landscape, spending summers working at Northern Foods and landing placements at Marks and Spencer and the European Food Information Council, Brussels.
Inspired, Annie moved into new product development, where she developed her love for the UK food industry, seizing the opportunity to absorb the latest food and consumer trends. Over a decade later, Annie then returned full-circle to The University of Nottingham, taking deep-dives into diverse food and drink categories and delighting in the opportunity to taste the latest culinary innovations.
When she’s not writing for thefoodpeople, you’ll find Annie enjoying family time in the kitchen experimenting with and tasting all things food!
