More About the Author

JOSCELINE DIMBLEBY has been one of Britain's most popular food writers for over thirty years. Her cookery books have sold well over 2 million copies in the UK alone, and been translated into many languages. She has published 17 cookery books and was cookery correspondent for the Sunday Telegraph newspaper for 15 years.

After nearly 30 years of writing cookery books Josceline made a complete change with a biographical family mystery spanning 100 years, which included her great grandmother's secret relationship with the Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones and her beautiful daughter's mysterious death 'of a broken heart'. A PROFOUND SECRET was first published in 2004 to great critical acclaim.

ORCHARDS IN THE OASIS followed in 2010, an autobiographical book combining her greatest passions in life, densely illustrated with photographs. The book won the Kate Whitman Award for food and travel writing in June 2011.

Most recently Josceline re-wrote, revised and added to her bestseller during the 1980's recessions, MARVELLOUS MEALS WITH MINCE published September 2012.

Josceline continues to travel widely, has written on travel and food for various publications, gives live talks and contributes to television and radio programmes.

Dimbleby, Josceline

The Author: Josceline Dimbleby was born in Oxford in 1943. From the age of five her childhood was spent abroad, mostly in the Middle East and South America, so that at an early age she learned to appreciate a wide variety of food.
Josceline's instinct has always been to create her own recipes, which results in varied and interesting dishes, but leading a very busy life herself she appreciates the value of advance preparation and simple methods and most of her recipes reflect this view without in any way affecting their originality.
Josceline regularly writes cookery articles for the national press and has also appeared on television. Her first cookery book, A Taste of Dreams, was published by Hodder & Stoughton in 1976 and in 1977 she produced Party Pieces, a booklet for the Victoria and Albert Museum's Silver Jubilee Exhibition of Young British Craftsmen. Cooking for Christmas is the first of a series of cookery books she is writing for Sainsbury's.
Josceline lives in London with her husband, television personality David Dimbleby, and their three lively children, all of whom, she says, eagerly try out and give constructive criticism on each new dish.
