Being a photographer in the food industry has some great privileges. One of those is meeting some interesting people working within the realm of all things food related. I recently spent the day with; the multi award winning guardian food writer and author Rachel Roddy, head chef of The Mash Inn Jon Parry and Chilterns Food Magazine Editor and writer Hugh Collins.

We spend the day foraging through the woods of the Chilterns and discussing all things food. Broaching all sorts of subjects from food sustainability to ancient and revisited recipes. The day culminated in a meal cooked by the fabulous chef Jon Parry at the Mash Inn, all the food was cooked on an open fire and again lended itself to yet more discussion and intrigue on all sorts that is the food world.
