Hello! I am Lexi Earl. Writer, reader, baker.

Lexi 2017

I am a writer, a former pastry chef, and a dabbling gardener. I used to be a researcher, but at the moment I work in science communication, and media for a research group. I am mostly interested in how food allows us to tell the stories of our lives, and that is what I am exploring on this site.

I write about a range of things here. I am interested in a range of things, including community gardens and growing your own, food festivals, travelling, recovering from the PhD, anxiety and depression, cake, the food stories of my family, swimming, and knitting.

My writing has appeared in: Comestible, Gastronomica, and the LSE Review of Books as well as in academic journal spaces. I contributed to On Relationships, published by 3 of Cups Press. I have written for the Outdoor Swimming Society.

I am the author of Schools and Food Education in the 21st Century, published by Routledge.

I am a writer for hire. If there is something you want to collaborate on, please get in touch!

I take all the photographs featured on the site and write all the content. All photographs are copyrighted. Please do not use them without explicit permission.
