Food wine travel writer
Contact me for:
 
  • All kinds of writing, in English or Dutch: Though my specialties are writing about food, wine, travel, lifestyle and Dutch/French culture, I have experience producing a wide variety of engaging content: from creative texts to advertorials that are guaranteed to reach exactly the audience you’re aiming for. With my academic background, I can also produce well-researched texts on history, art and literature. Upon request, my work can be accompanied by high-resolution professional photography.
  • Editing & Proofreading: Choosing the right words; paying meticulous attention to proper spelling, grammar, punctuation and syntax; adhering to your publication’s style and tone.
  • Recipe development: I have more than a decade of recipe writing experience for a wide variety of publications, including one of the most popular Dutch women’s weekly magazines, Vriendin. Because there is nothing worse than a poorly written recipe that results in failure and wasted ingredients, all my recipes are thoroughly tested for accuracy and are always guaranteed to work, even for novice cooks. 
  • Translations (Dutch/English & English/ Dutch): I have a degree in academic Dutch from the University of Leiden and have lived in the Netherlands for close to two decades. I have translated everything from menus to press releases and books.
  • Restaurant and product reviews on my blog: Expect my honest opinion. I will not (never, ever) promote a company or brand simply for the money. Feel free to reach out and let me know why your product/restaurant is worth mentioning.
  • Culinary consultancy for healthy meal planning: Forget the trendy food boxes! I can help you save time and money by teaching you how to plan fresh, weekly meals and shop wisely, efficiently and economically. Ideal for busy families, college students or anyone eager to eat well. Contact me for more information!
  • Cooking films: Let me show off your product in my kitchen with a recipe written according to your wishes. Because I work with a professional video editor, I can offer you an attractive package deal.
  • Personal cooking lessons: Are you a beginner in the kitchen and do you want to be inspired to cook delicious meals for you and your family? Or do you know your way around the kitchen but are looking to expand your culinary repertoire? Let me be your cooking teacher! My individual cooking lessons can be tailored to your needs and budget. We will not only cook, but I will also teach you about ingredients, flavors and healthy eating.
