About Ramona

Ramona Andrews is a highly experienced food writer and digital content producer. She worked for the BBC Food website for many years, during which time the site won a BAFTA nomination, World Food Media Award and Guild of Food Writers Award.

But before we get to all that, here’s a bit of a backstory…

They say it’s all about who you know in the media. Well thankfully Ramona’s dad was a well-connected South London driving instructor whose contacts branched right across the capital and beyond. Daddy’s network (!) led to an internship for Martha Stewart Living magazine in New York City, where Ramona first cut her teeth in food media at the age of 19.

After studying to be a chef at Westminster Kingsway College, she went to work for the UKTV Food website (now Good Food Channel). Ramona has worked as a restaurant reviewer for Time Out (London) and Square Meal (Bristol), a recipe tester for various publishers and a content producer for major digital agencies. She was the Producer of the BBC Food blog and moved with the team from London to Bristol.

She now lives in Bristol with Joseph and her two boys, but still finds London calling for work and fun. She completed an MSc in Food Policy at City, University of London in 2019. Her interest in food policy has led to consultancy work for Bristol Food Network, helping to deliver the Bristol Going for Gold campaign, which led to the city being awarded Gold Sustainable Food City status.

She currently dedicates her time to working on food policy change campaigns in Bristol with many partners, as well as keeping her hand in recipe testing and shooting for bigger food clients and publications in her kitchen studio.

Social media

Ramona has curated and produced a wealth of content about food, lifestyle and sustainability on social media for many, many different brands!

Ramona developed her digital editorial skills through working at the BBC from the early days of messageboards through to webchats, and then onto leading social media strategy for BBC Food. This included introducing Mary Berry to Twitter, running a Twitter Q&A ahead of her TV series!

She also worked for social media clients on behalf of Zone digital agency, leading the relationship with Channel 4’s Food On 4 and representing the channel during a live Q&A with Jamie Oliver. 

Ramona has been organising this type of digital event with top chefs for many years, running regular Q&As after BBC Two’s Saturday Kitchen with the likes of Ken Hom, James Martin, Donna Hay and The Hairy Bikers.

In the past decade, Ramona’s work has focussed on social purpose. She worked with the organisation facilitating Bristol’s year as European Green Capital in 2015 to develop social strategy. She continues to work on campaigns for Bristol Waste and Bristol Food Network.
