Journalism & Translation

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.
  • 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.
  • Editing & Proofreading: Choosing the right words; paying meticulous attention to proper spelling, grammar, punctuation and syntax; adhering to your publication’s style and tone.
  • Collaborations: Want to be featured on my France blog? Get in touch and let’s see what we can offer each other.
  • 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.
