Sophie Knox Richmond
Sophie is a food writer and recipe developer from Kent. She graduated from UCL with a BA in English and has returned to study for an MSc in Clinical Nutrition and Eating Disorders. Moving to the countryside at a young age resulted in Sophie developing a passion for sustainable food and quality ingredients. A love of food and cooking is in her blood – as Sophie has cooked alongside her food writer mother since before she could walk ...her earliest food memory is picking homegrown plums, apples and pears before transforming them into classic crumbles served with a jug of warm custard (which would later become homemade ice cream). She loves nothing more than developing delicious recipes for every occasion; from seasonal salads and sumptuous soups to warming one-pots and simple snacks (and everything in between).
