Rose Fooks

Rose Fooks, Deputy Food Editor at Future Publishing, creates recipes, reviews products and writes food features for a range of lifestyle and home titles including GoodtoKnow, Style at Home and Woman&Home.

Rose’s world revolves around the kitchen table. Her interest in cooking began when she went to Goldsmiths University. Inspired by a desire to recreate the delicious home-cooked meals she was accustomed to, cooking soon became more exciting than her Art degree. Beginning her career in the corporate world, she soon realised that cooking combined her two favourite things: creativity and gourmandism, which motivated her to return to the classroom for a Diplome de Patisserie and Culinary Management at London’s Le Cordon Bleu.

Certificate-in-hand, she pursued a career in the culinary arts, first jumping into professional kitchens at The Delaunay and Zedel before joining the team that opened Bellanger. Rose ran a food market in Islington championing local producers and cooked for a catering company that used only surplus food to supply events, before finding her way into publishing and food styling.

Career highlights have included interviewing the wonderful Mary Berry and working on Truth, Love and Clean Cutlery; a guidebook of sustainable restaurants in the UK. She also enjoyed the challenge of creating a home-based, lockdown baking shoot for Woman & Home, and had her work published in a range of online and print publications, including Feel Good Food, for which she created a range of dishes that were featured on the front cover.

Other than cooking, writing and eating, Rose spends her time developing her photography skills, strolling around her neighbourhood with her small, feisty dog Mimi, and planning the renovation of a dilapidated 17th-century property in the South West of France.
