Samuel Goldsmith

Samuel grew up around it in a family of keen cooks and eaters. After gaining a BSc in Food from the University of Birmingham, he began teaching cookery to teenagers at secondary school level. Whilst teaching, he worked as a sous chef at weekends and assisted on food photography shoots during the holidays.He left the classroom and his role as Assistant Head Teacher to concentrate solely on food writing. 

Nearly 15 years after he began his professional food career, his work has featured in national and international publications including Waitrose Food, Australian Delicious, and the LAD Bible Group. Samuel has also consulted on a number of best-selling food and drink books; and was a nutritional consultant for BBC’s Eat Well for Less. Throughout his career he has specialised in recipe writing and he still loves to teach people how to cook (although he’s not quite as patient as he used to be!).

After travelling Europe searching for the best coffee shops, he landed the perfect role working across Woman&Home, Woman’s Weekly, Country Homes & Interiors, Livingetc, Homes & Gardens and GoodtoKnow. Along with the Test Kitchen team, he produces recipes and looks after the content for these magazines and websites and others in the Future portfolio. Away from Future, Samuel is also Co-Vice Chair of the Guild of Food Writers and a Trustee of 91 Ways CIC.

When not writing about, cooking or eating food, Samuel can usually be found binge-watching TV shows, wandering a museum or escaping the city for greener and sunnier climates. He also dreams of buying a run-down Italian villa and turning it into a cookery school in the sun.
