My name is Chloe and I write news and features on food, design and lifestyle subjects. I have a monthly column for Viva Lewes for which I overshare thoughts about life where I live. See also: The Pool.


My writing for Great British Chefs includes features on Trenchmore Farm wagyu; Nama Yasai Japanese vegetable farm; The Art of Pickling; Sussex Food Producers and recipes for cinnamon buns and baklava.
I write a monthly Edible Updates column for Viva Lewes and formerly Viva Brighton about new restaurant openings and events. My guide to Hastings & St Leonards eateries is featured on Buzzfeed Food, and this piece on Stephen Edwards' .etch is one of my reviews for Restaurants Brighton.
As a producer for Chalk TV I created 11 short films on exciting local food projects and my former food blog, Gannet & Parrot, was a two-time finalist in the Britmums Brilliance in Blogging Awards.
I am now proud to be a member of the Guild of Food Writers alongside some of my favourite authors.
