GIZZI ERSKINE has been an integral part of the London food scene for nearly twenty years. After leaving a career as a body piercer in Camden and completing her training as a chef at the prestigious Leith’s School of Food and Wine, she quickly established herself as a chef and award-winning food writer.
Her hugely popular sell-out live events and pop-up restaurants have established her as a leader in the London scene, and she has collaborated with some of the UK’s most talented chefs including Mark Hix, Angela Hartnett and Tom Kerridge. She has authored many bestselling books including the Gourmand Award-winning 'SKINNY WEEKS AND WEEKEND FEASTS', 'KITCHEN MAGIC', 'COOK YOURSELF THIN’, ‘HEALTHY APPETITE’, SEASON’S EATINGS’, ‘SLOW’ and recently released ‘RESTORE’; a collection of over 100 delicious recipes that have sustainability at their core.
Most recently, she had a residency at St. Martin’s Lane Hotel called THE NITERY; a Parisian-inspired restaurant in the former Asia de Cuba site offering a fusion of sumptuous and innovative French, American and British dishes. Following the huge success of the weekly lockdown Instagram mini-series GIZ & GREEN’S MONDAY NIGHT FAKEAWAY, where Gizzi taught musician and documentary maker Professor Green how to make his favourite takeaways in isolation, Giz & Green now enjoys a life ‘offline’ on the home delivery app Deliveroo.
Gizzi also hosts her a chart topping podcast SEX LIES AND DM SLIDES, with model and satirical writer “ Sydney Lima” a fortnightly podcast hosted by Spotify. Each week a group of terrifyingly smart, unapologetically hot and intimidatingly empowered women will embark on a salacious, brutally frank, hilariously funny and profoundly insightful discussion on the kinks, quirks and problems associated with sex and love in the age of social media.
As a food writer, Gizzi has worked with some of the nation's most favoured publications including THE SUNDAY TIMES, MARIE CLAIRE, ELLE, ELLE USA, VOGUE USA, GQ, THE TIMES, THE EVENING STANDARD and THE DAILY TELEGRAPH.
Gizzi’s successful career in TV began with the Channel 4 ratings winner 'COOK YOURSELF THIN', ‘IRON CHEF’, ‘COOKERY SCHOOL’, and ‘DROP DOWN MENU’. Gizzi later joined Sky Living as a face of the channel and hosted the series ‘COOKS TO MARKET’ and 'ONES TO WATCH’ alongside Rankin, Idris Elba and Paloma Faith helping to launch the next generation of hot new talent, andSEOUL FOOD which was a hit on cable channel Good Food.
Gizzi has collaborated with some of our most loved brands including INNOCENT, LEON, BYRON BURGER, GREY GOOSE, SAMSUNG, MICHAEL KORS, ADIDAS, AMERICAN EXPRESS, TANQUERAY and JOHN LEWIS.
