About The Guyrope Gourmet

Guyrope Gourmet is the creation of food and travel writer Josh Sutton, a kind of alter ego if you like.  In a nutshell being a Guyrope Gourmet is all about eating well on a campsite.  Instead of reverting to tinned and processed food, get hold of some fresh local ingredients and have a bash at something new.

I’m a member of The Guild of Food Writers, I have a degree in Arabic with Middle Eastern & Islamic Studies and a Masters in Professional Housing Studies.

I write and illustrate a monthly column as the Guyrope Gourmet in Camping magazine, as well as writing the odd feature every now and again.  I’ve written for The Guardian, The Yorkshire Post, Fire & Knives, Gin & It, Lakeland Walker magazine, Big Issue in the North, The Foodie Bugle, Go Camping, Green Parent Magazine, Lovefood.com, Great Food Magazine, Regional Review, VW Camper & Commercial.  Where possible and appropriate I like to illustrate my writing with a drawing (have a look at the Illustrations page – you’ll get the picture)

As well as making a short film for the BBC as the Guyrope Gourmet (see clip) and recording a programme on Camping Food for BBC Radio 4’s Food Programme, my bent for research based food writing recently lead to an appearance on BBC 1’s The One Show – where Jay Rayner called me a nerd!

I’m currently writing my second book, but will happily put my pen down for a while if you’d like to commission me to write or draw for you, just drop me a line: chef (at) guyropegourmet.com
