I’m Alex Rushmer, a freelance writer who specialises in food, cooking and all things edible.
In addition to creating the globally popular food blog Just Cook It where I document my culinary adventures, my writing has been featured in a range of publications including Waitrose Food Illustrated, the Financial Times, Home Farmer, Cambridgeshire Agenda and Portfolio Magazine.
