Monya Kilian Palmer

Culinary Editor | Recipe Developer

Monya’s experience lies in recipe testing, development, writing and project management, and more recently food styling and photography. Before starting Soigné Consulting (the name she trades under), she worked as Culinary Editor at Le Cordon Bleu International.

Prior to that, she worked for 3.5 years at Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck Experimental Kitchen – where her role lay first in development and styling, and then evolved into a recipe editing and project management role. Monya continues to work as a consultant with the team in Bray on many exciting projects.

Monya trained as a chef after a long career in design. Her strong interest in ingredients and dietary requirements coupled with her arsenal of skills gained over the years has allowed her to offer more to her clients in terms of content. Monya authors the Ketogenic recipe blog: The Fats of Life and has recently been certified as a LCHF Coach after training through Prof. Tim Noakes Nutrition Network.

She is based in Berkshire, UK and works with clients from all over the world from her fully-equipped kitchen-studio.
