Kate Young is an award-winning food writer and cook. A dedicated bookworm, Kate's reading inspires her in the kitchen, and after mastering the treacle tart from Harry Potter, Kate started blogging about her creations. She was named Blogger of the Year in 2017 by the Guild of Food Writers. Her first book, The Little Library Cookbook, was shortlisted for the Fortnum & Mason's debut food book award and won a World Gourmand food writing award. Kate writes about food and books for various publications in the UK. Originally from Australia, Kate now lives in the English countryside.


My first cookbook was published by Head of Zeus in the UK in October 2017. The Little Library Cookbook can be ordered here and here. It is also published by Sterling in the United States, and by Wunderraum in Germany (translated by Susanne Kammerer). My second book, The Little Library Year, will be published by Head of Zeus in October 2019, and can be preordered anywhere you buy books:
