Hattie Ellis is a food writer and author of nine books on food and drink that focus on where food comes from and the people who grow, farm, collect and produce it. Her latest book is What to Eat(Portobello, 2012), which explores food dilemmas like – What is a sustainable fish? What is a green kitchen? Does any diet work? Is eating local parochial? The underlying message is that the solutions are rooted in common sense and delicious real food. Hattie has written for many newspapers and magazines and also online for the BBC and others. She lives in London and East Sussex.
