Hugh Thomas | Food Writer and Journalist



Hugh Thomas

Freelance food writer and journalist

London, UK


Oh. Hello there.

I’m Hugh. I eat, I drink, and I explore food and its culture. Often, I write about it. Some people like to call this ‘food journalism’. I have yet to find a better descriptor.

I cover producers, farming, ethicality, pubs, the restaurant industry, lifestyle, travel, and street food, but also food and beer more generally.

On said matters, I’ve written for Time Out, Restaurant, Eater, Foodism, Great British Chefs, British Street Food, Ferment, et al.

Additionally, my writing is called on to help businesses drive traffic through their blogs (OpenTable, Farmdrop, Eventbrite, Boxpark), or as a form of research and consulting (McCain, Walkers, Epicurean Events).

So. You know why you’re here. Do reach out through email or Twitter, or feel free to look around. If you’re after advice or tuition on pitching however, then right this way.

Alright then. Have a nice day.
