Ruby Tandoh

United Kingdom

Since making it to the finals of The Great British Bake Off in 2013, Ruby Tandoh has established herself as a prolific food writer. Her essays, recipes, and reportage have been published by the likes of the New Yorker, The Guardian, Vice, Eater, and Vittles, and she’s also written a number of cookbooks. As part of our series Work Sucks, I Know, in which writers explore how jobs aren’t all they’re cracked up to be, Ruby wrote a piece for us about why she’s a loud-and-proud quitter.
