Sudi Pigott is a vastly experienced, highly opinionated and exuberantly enthusiastic food writer and restaurant critic who is passionately obsessed with the “discriminatingly greedy” pleasures of good eating and has carved a distinctive niche as a food-trend spotter. She was the first UK journalist to write about both Rene Redzepi of Noma and Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana.
Sudi’s culinary antennae are invariably on full alert whether writing about food trends; the best and rarest ingredients; artisan producers; specialist shops; chefs and restaurants and how they are adjusting to the current most challenging of times for hospitality. Sudi has explored gastro-destinations from La Mancha to join a saffron harvest to tapping for maple syrup in Quebec and also enjoys delving into culinary history.
The author of “How to be a Better Foodie: the little bulging book for the truly epicurious” and “Flipping Good: pancakes around the world”, Sudi writes for a wide variety of publications including Daily Mail, The Times, The i paper, Amex Magazines, Platinum, Spectator Life, Culture Whisper and Fine Dining Lovers.
Sudi also works as a consultant on food trends and runs public and bespoke corporate food quizzes on zoom. At home, she is a boldly adventurous cook who relishes entertaining.
