Alex Bluett is a chef, forager, gardener and writer from Cornwall. Growing up on a Cornish farm next to the sea meant that food was always close to his heart. Hiding under his Gran’s kitchen table whilst she made blackberry crumble and helping Grandad dig the first of his Cornish new potatoes meant the seeds of good food and the importance of seasonality were sown early.
After spending 15 years working his way around the kitchens of Bristol and Cardiff, working as Head of Food for Friska, contributing to The Guardian and running numerous pop-up kitchens and events around the South West he has now moved back to his home, Cornwall. His goal there is to better understand sustainability, organic practice and self-sufficiency, growing food on 2 acres of land and running small events where the food truly is local.
