bbcgoodfood.com's sub is a linguist with a love of tiramisu
Emily studied French and Italian at Oxford University. While reading Dante was all well and good, it was her year abroad teaching English at a secondary school in Turin that helped shape her future career. It was here that Emily abandoned her vegetarian diet to try home-reared salami; the archetypal Italian mamma taught her to cook gnocchi and a student passed on her secret recipe for tiramisu.
Back in the UK, after graduation, Emily did work experience for various food mags and volunteered at The Soil Association, before landing the job of Web assistant on bbc.co.uk/food, where she edited recipes for BBC TV programmes and met many a celeb chef while helping to co-ordinate the Saturday Kitchen webchat.
Emily joined the bbcgoodfood.com team as Researcher in July 2008 and was later promoted to Sub-editor. She enjoys sampling the fruits of the Good Food test kitchen, as well as handling competitions, the weekly newsletter and other editorial bits and bobs.
