Eat Up! Ruby Tandoh and Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff

Whether railing against the clean eating movement or reviewing fast food restaurants for Vice, journalist, writer and 2013 Bake Off runner up Ruby Tandoh is a refreshing new voice in food writing. In her third book Eat Up! (Serpent’s Tail) Tandoh displays her characteristic straight-talking and self-criticism in a dazzling dissection of food fads, gourmet culture and fake science.

She discussed food, sex, race, misogyny and other pressing issues with fellow journalist and writer Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff.
