Millie Milliken


Millie Milliken has been writing about food and drink ever since (having graduated with a philosophy degree) her post-uni career hunt thrust her very quickly into working in the hospitality industry. Since then, she’s written for vintage, theatre and events magazines – while eating and drinking her way around the country. When she isn't nursing a Gin Martini, she can usually be found in the nearest taxidermy shop, roaming in the Cotswolds or reading true crime. That or sniffing old books. Find her @millie_milliken
