GIZZI ERSKINE has been an integral part of the London food scene for fifteen 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 an award-winning food writer and stylist.
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’ and SEASON’S EATINGS’.
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 the new face of the channel and hosted the series ‘COOKS TO MARKET’. More recently Gizzi was part of Sky1 show 'ONES TO WATCH’ alongside Rankin, Idris Elba and Paloma Faith helping to launch the next generation of hot new talent. Her most recent show SEOUL FOOD has been a hit on cable channel Good Food. The show was a refreshing insight into the amazing food and culture found in South Korea, which is influencing foodies all over the world.
Gizzi has collaborated with some of our most loved brands including INNOCENT, LEON, BYRON BURGER, SAMSUNG, ZIZZI, MICHAEL KORS, ADIDAS and JOHN LEWIS.
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 she is currently a contributing editor for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH and INSTYLE.
Gizzi is now finally working on her first restaurant "Pure filth" with nutritionist Rosemary Ferguson and banker Dougal Brech - opening later this year.
