Beatrice Dorothy "Bee" Wilson (born 7 March 1974, Oxford) is a British food writer, journalist and historian and the author of five books on food-related subjects. Her writing has consistently looked at food in its broadest sense, as it relates to history, ideas and human life. The New Yorker writer Jane Kramer noted in 2013 that 'Bee Wilson describes herself as a food writer. That's half the story'. In The New York Times Dawn Drzal described Wilson as 'a congenial kitchen oracle'. In "Consider the Fork" Wilson wrote about the history of kitchen technology, from fire to the AeroPress. In an interview in 2015, Wilson said that her next book, First Bite: How We Learn to Eat, was about developing a healthy relationship with food: "We don't have an instinct that tells us what to eat...It's not a moral thing. It's a skill we learn".
For twelve years, Wilson wrote the 'Kitchen Thinker' column in the Sunday Telegraph's "Stella" magazine  for which she was three times named the Guild of Food Writers food journalist of the year, in 2004, 2008 and 2009. Before that, for five years from 1998 she was the food critic of the New Statesman magazine, where she often wrote about school meals. She has also written book reviews and other articles about food and other subjects for a wide range of publications including "The Guardian" "The Sunday Times" and "The Times Literary Supplement]]". She has written several "Page Turner" blogs for "The New Yorker" on ideas about the recipe.
She is the author of five books, The Hive: The Story of the Honeybee and Us (2004), Swindled: From Poison Sweets to Counterfeit Coffee, the Dark History of the Food Cheats (2008), a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week, "Sandwich: A Global History", Consider the Fork: A History of How We Cook and Eat (Basic Books; October, 2012) and "First Bite: How We Learn to Eat" (Basic Books and Fourth Estate 2015).
