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.
