Hi, I'm Matthew.

I'm a data scientist turned pizzaiolo and food tour guide who likes to write about food, its history and the culture surrounding it.

My articles cover dish origins, contraversial food topics, cultural behaviours towards certain ingredients and more.

My most popular articles include The failed recognition of British food, Garlic: the most misunderstood ingredient of Italian cooking and The simplest sandwich I've ever had.

My goal is to spark interesting conversations about food, change people's perception of certain ingredients or dishes and teach people why we eat what we eat.
