The author of six cookery books, with one more written and at the press for publication mid 2015, writing about food and creating gorgeous recipes is something I have a serious passion for. As a naturally greedy girl, food is never very far from my mind and inspiration often strikes me when I am least expecting it. I regularly dream in recipes and some of my best ideas occur in the middle of the night. My love is for simple, colorful, gorgeous food - food that looks as good as it tastes. Genuinely passionate about cooking with the seasons, much of my inspiration comes from a lifelong love of the outdoors. I like nothing better than to wander around my garden, often with a glass of wine in hand, inspecting the progress of the things I am growing and nurturing, plotting and planning what I might do with them when they ripen.
My next book, How to Eat Outside, is due for publication summer 2015 and sees me cooking and eating in the fresh air. Starting at the gentler end of al fresco, with picnic and barbecue food, the book moves through to campsite cooking, bonfires and even cooking out in the wilderness. This has been my most enjoyable and adventurous book to date and I have loved every minute of writing it.
If you’d like to commission me to write for your magazine, newspaper or website I’d love to hear from you!
