Genevieve Taylor

Food Writer, Presenter and
Napoleon Ambassador




Live fire and barbecue expert Genevieve Taylor is the author of ten cookery books including:
The Ultimate Wood-Fired Oven Cookbook and MasterChef: Street Food of the World

Her most recent book, Charred on the delights of vegetarian BBQ, was published by Quadrille in May 2019 and was a bestseller all summer.

A proud omnivore, Genevieve is on a mission to prove that great BBQ isn’t just about Man vs. Meat. When she’s not cooking over an open fire, Genevieve can usually be found outside walking her dogs in the woods or growing a few good things to eat on her Bristol allotment.

She has recently set up @FoodFireEarth, a fire-based events company to make the most of all the food she grows.

She is the current Chair of the Guild of Food Writers, a BBC Food Programme regular and a judge on the BBC’s Food and Farming awards.
