Biography

Kay Plunkett-Hogge is a well-respected food and drink writer with a wide culinary repertoire and an in-depth knowledge of the drinks industry.

Growing up in 70s Bangkok, Kay spent her childhood between two kitchens: inside for Western food, outside for Thai. Thai cuisine continues to be a part of Kay’s everyday cooking and features in her latest book, Heat: Cooking with Chillies, the World’s Favourite Spice, published by Quercus in May 2016.

Kay started her food career by setting up a bespoke location catering service for the fashion business, having been a model agent in New York and London, and a movie co-ordinator in Bangkok and Los Angeles during the 80s and 90s. Since then, Kay has worked as a food consultant, most notably with the team behind the successful Leon restaurants and is co-author of Leon Family & Friends.

An author in her own right, Kay’s acclaimed cocktail book, Make Mine a Martini was published in 2014 and was chosen by the Financial Times as one of the best food books of the year, winning accolades for its straightforward and knowledgeable approach to cocktail-making: “Kay can cook – and she shakes a damn fine cocktail too.” – Heston Blumenthal. Her next book in the series, A Sherry & A Little Plate of Tapas, will be published by Mitchell Beazley in August 2016.

Kay has written for FT Weekend, Delicious and Olive and currently writes a regular cocktail column for the Daily Telegraph where she combines traditional drinks with new recipes and gives a fascinating insight into the history and provenance of cocktails. She is a member of The Gin Guild.

Kay lives in London with her husband.
