Anna Colquhoun

Anna Colquhoun is a cooking teacher, food consultant and writer with a fascination for the anthropology of food. Something of a food nerd, she has travelled far to research and write about her subject.
Anna offers cooking classes in London, including popular bread-making and preserving workshops among others. Her supper club, the Secret Kitchen, is a convivial dinner at which people sit together for a surprise seasonal menu. Books include 'Eat Slow Britain' (Sawdays, 2010), the 'Riverford Companion' seasonal vegetable series (Riverford, 2015) and 'Gather, Cook, Feast' (Fig Tree, 2017). She is also the consultant on BBC Radio 4's 'The Kitchen Cabinet', having had the original idea for the show.
Anna trained as a chef in San Francisco and at Alice Waters' legendary restaurant Chez Panisse in Berkeley. She is currently doing research for a PhD in anthropology, focussed on the construction of regional cuisine
