Meet Gilly

What do you want to say in the world?

Gilly Smith

I’m an award-winning food writer and podcaster who’s been writing and making radio, television and podcasts since the early ’90s.

I’ve written lots of books, mainly about the influence of culture of food in its various forms, as well as articles for the national press and academic journals, largely about food, philosophy and ethical travel.

I’m the producer and presenter of the following podcasts:

Cooking the Books with Gilly Smith

the delicious podcast

Leon’s How to Eat to Save the Planet 

The Food Foundation Podcast

Philip Lymbery, global CEO of Compassion in World Farming’s podcast The Big Table

The Borough Market Podcast

 

My book, Taste and the TV Chef won the 2020 Gourmand Award for best UK food writing and the International Impact Award 2021.

If you'd like to learn how to podcast and really say something, you can sign up for her Domestika course. Use the promo code GILLY_4-PROMO

I also host writing podcasting and writing retreats at my home in East Sussex, and Cooking the Books Supper Club where some of my favourite food writers cook and talk in depth about their books with a small group of food fans.

Pop over to find me on Substack where I'm a much more regular visitor. Each week, I ask Cooking the Books guests for a little extra something, and they've been playing ball.

For eight years, I was a  part-time senior lecturer at the University of Brighton where I taught radio and TV journalism and digital storytelling. I also held workshops with staff and PhD students on how to tell stories about their academic research. I use all of these skills in all sorts of creative ways.
