About the Author
Kerstin Rodgers aka MsMarmitelover launched the underground restaurant movement in the UK with her eponymous supper club The Underground Restaurant. She is part of a new generation of writers and chefs who use social media to promote food via blogging, facebook and twitter; she has appeared on TV numerous times and is regularly interviewed in broadsheets, tabloids and magazines.

There is a page about words and phrases that should never be used which I would like to copy and circulate very widely!!
I can't think of anyone better qualified to write this book as Kerstin who has hands-on experience in all topics covered in the book, from appearing on radio and TV, to high end food photography and publishing three other books. It's a practical, credible, useful and really entertaining resource.
That said, as a food-writing coach and mentor, I greatly welcome the arrival of this generous, thought-provoking and up-to-date guide. It explains blogs and has great tips and writing exercises. It’s thorough, forthright, informative and funny: (Food writers would) ‘rather eat than have sex’. You feel that Rodgers genuinely attempts to get to grips with the complex times we’re living through: ‘Blogging started off as a stepping stone to a food writing career but is also one of the reasons why a paid food writing career is increasingly difficult to achieve.’
Looking forward to the updated version in a couple of years when everything will have changed again. For now, I recommend it to my students.
