Mark is lucky enough to spend most of his time eating, growing, writing and talking about food.
Mark has written and/or photographed 13 books, including A Year at Otter Farm (which won the Andre Simon Food Book of the Year 2014), A Taste of the Unexpected (Guild of Food Writers’ Food Book of the Year 2011), and The New Kitchen (Garden Garden Media Guild Book of The Year 2015).
His refreshing approach to growing unusual and forgotten food along with the best of the familiar has done much to inspire a new generation of gardeners and cooks. As well as his books, Mark has written for all the weekend papers, magazines as diverse as National Geographic, Simple Things and Delicious.
Mark was involved with River Cottage in the early days, appearing in the TV series and writing three of the River Cottage Handbook series.
