After working as a restaurant listings editor in the early days of the Independent newspaper, a stint as the restaurant critic began in 1989 after the death of the paper’s inimitable and beloved founding food writer and restaurant critic Jeremy Round. There were too many reviews done on a nearly weekly basis over the next seven years to link. This page links a few samples along with a handful of pieces written in the US on a guest-columnist basis. The photographs, by Frances Lang, are from the Independent series “When women rule the roast” (text linked above) and a piece for Country Life on work of Italian chef Franco Taruschio with Welsh cocklers.
