About Fiona Faulkner


Hi there!

This site is now mainly used to platform my work as a children's food writer and consultant. I've more recently been working on an updated, slightly more grown-up website, showing off my new married name - and covering broader aspects of the work I do - from PR consultancy to my latest project: @HomeCastleCary

Great to see you here. But click below - and I'll see you after the jump. Fiona x

Fiona is a self-taught and highly creative home cook as well as author, food journalist, food stylist, menu planner and consultant.

She's also a travel writer, blogger and broadcaster with a background in live radio and voice-over.

Fiona has a niche interest and expertise in children’s eating habits and as such is the founder of the highly acclaimed Toddler Chef - a business inspired by her own experience of motherhood.

Her first cook book 25 Foods Kids Hate and How To Get Them Eating 24 (New Holland) has now sold out its entire first edition. It featured widely in both national press and key digital media - including The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, Red magazine and Netmums (with whom Fiona now frequently collaborates - offering ideas on creative baking as well as the healthy stuff!

Fiona’s innovative and informed slant on healthy eating has seen her frequently pop up on our TV screens from ITV to Sky News (see mini film below). Her own blog demonstrates a thoughtful approach to the usual rhetoric.

She's frequently asked to develop recipes for corporate clients ranging from Morrisons to Unilever, filming online content with her signature friendly and approachable style. She’s been invited to design new dishes and menus for the travel and leisure industry with past projects including an innovative new children's menu for luxury tour operator Scott Dunn.

As a specialist in children's food Fiona was a key figure in the press launch of Tesco’s Eat Happy campaign, and alongside the launch she also filmed a number of teaching resources for schools.

She’s an ambassador and blogger for The Children’s Food Trust, the largest charity of its kind on the UK, providing an advisory role to government.

Fiona also frequently turns her hand to broader food reviewing and was recently seen on Channel 5’s The Restaurant Inspector.

Fiona has demo’ed at an array of food festivals. As a food / travel journalist she's been commissioned to write for publications ranging from The Independent to The London Evening Standard through to Delicious and Olive magazines (ask for cuttings).

Fiona’s background is in radio presentation and voice-over with live broadcast experience that spans working with Chris Evans back in the days of Virgin radio through to presenting her own syndicated music show on the (former) TLRC network – growing an audience of around a million listeners nightly. You can listen to her radio demo here)

This mini film is a snapshot of her work.

Fiona has three children and lives in Somerset.
