EDITOR & CO-FOUNDER

Killian Fox

I’m an Irish journalist living in north London. As well as editing The Gannet, I write regularly for The Observer and its Food Monthly magazine. As a child I was a really picky eater but over the years I’ve become greedily curious about all kinds of food. One turning point was ordering a plate of snails in France aged 11; another was a summer of indulgence in New York nine years later. My fall-back dish is a very simple pasta with tomato sauce. I have a phobia of boiled eggs but I’m working on it. The Gannet is a natural conduit for my shameless nosiness about other people’s eating habits.

CO-FOUNDER

Adam Park

I’m a filmmaker and producer based in London, by way of Ireland and South Africa. Alongside The Gannet, I’m a co-founder of London video agency Blueprint. Since childhood I’ve been interested how cultures around the world relate to food. Eating sushi for the first time, aged 12, basically changed my life. Other revelatory moments include eating smoked brisket in Texas, tacos in Mexico, truffles on risotto in northern Italy and a goat stew under a tree in Tanzania. Don’t talk to me about bananas though.

CONTRIBUTING EDITOR

James Hansen

I’m a food writer based in North London, brought up in Cheltenham via Cambridge. I work on the editorial side of The Gannet, curating our weekly food writing digest alongside all manner of writing, editing and researching. My culinary upbringing started with applying The Magic Stir to anything and everything that my parents cooked, before horrifying them by ordering blood-rare brochettes as a young and impressionable child on holiday in France. I often frighten my housemates by fermenting (delicious) things in our communal fridge. I am particularly interested in long-form food writing, the representation of food in literary and visual culture, and the fastest route to a glass of natural wine.
