Travel and food writer Carolyn Boyd specialises in France, covering everything from the best new hotels to the country’s fascinating culture surrounding its food and drinks.
After nearly 10 years as editor of France Magazine, she went freelance in 2016 and then wrote From the Source: France (published by Lonely Planet), a collection of stories and recipes from every corner of the country, which involved tracking down, interviewing and translating recipes from 65 different chefs, cooks and bakers.
Carolyn writes regularly for The Times, The Guardian, National Geographic Traveller and Sunday Times Travel, and publishes a regular newsletter from her website carolynboyd.net/go-to-france full of tips and inspiration on getting the best from a trip over the Channel.
Based in the not-very-French town of Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, she also loves discovering the best food stories there as well as in her home stomping ground of south Devon. Carolyn also works part-time for culinary royalty, the Roux family, as communications manager of the Roux Scholarship.
