I have the best job in the world: I’m a food adventurer. I know that sounds a bit odd, but there’s really no other way of explaining it. I spend my life working to inspire fascination with food and I do it by cooking, exploring and occasionally blowing stuff up. Actually, I do quite a lot of blowing stuff up.
I live in North London with my family and a menagerie of crazy animals but spend a lot of my time travelling or on tour. I graduated from Oxford University with a degree in English and worked in TV and film production as well as the BBC’s New Comedy Department before I realised that all I really cared about was exploring extraordinary food stories and talking to people about them.
I develop half of my own TV shows, and I’ve made some pretty wild series to get people excited by what they eat: Food Factory (BBC1), Gastronuts (CBBC), Incredible Edibles (CBBC), Full on Food (BBC2), Cooking in the Danger Zone BBC2) and also lots of serious documentaries about hunger, conflict and anthropology: Can Eating Insects Save the World?, Feasts, Calves Heads and Coffee: The Golden Age of English Food (all BBC4). I love food science: Food Factory, E Numbers: An Edible Adventure (BBC2) and I particularly enjoy staging big live food stunt shows. Basically, I like cooking food that will blow your mind.
The Crabstock Boys

Andrea trained at Leith’s School of Food and Wine, following her training she worked as a chef for several years gaining critical real life catering experience which has given her a wide range of knowledge.
