About the Author
Vivienne Bolton learned much from her grandmother, a careful housekeeper who wasted nothing and earned her living as a dressmaker, baking bread, making preserves and growing mint on the kitchen windowsill to discourage flies from entering the house. A passionate painter and craftswoman with an insatiable curiosity for life, Vivienne has five children and has cooked in Bury St Edmunds and France, prepared beeswax polish, kept chickens, made soft cheeses and grown enough carrots to feed a community.
