Contributing editor

Mike was born to eat and drink, so it's lucky he's editor of Square Mile's sister title Foodism. His favourite cocktail is a negroni, his favourite wines are from California, his favourite spirit is whisky (with and without the 'e') and his favourite food probably changes too often to list. In what little other free time he has, he withstands being routinely disappointed at the home of his beloved Tottenham Hotspur FC.
