Agent(s): Julian Alexander

Pen Vogler is a critically acclaimed food historian. She edited the Penguin’s Great Food series and writes and reviews on food history for a wide range of national newspapers. She has recreated recipes from the past for BBC Television, and writes about it on her blog, Pen’s Great Food Club.

Her cookery titles are as unique in content as they are writing style. They include Dinner with Mr Darcy, a cookbook inspired by the food from Austen’s novels and letters, and Christmas with Dickens, which shares seasonal recipes inspired by the work of Charles Dickens. In 2020, she published Scoff: A History of Food and Class in Britain, The Times and Sunday Times History Book of the Year, and Waterstones Book of the Month.
