As food writer and food stylist, I get to cook and eat for a living. What a treat for a greedy girl......
I had my first book, STEW!, published in Feb 2011, and this has been followed by SOUP!, MARSHMALLOW MAGIC, A GOOD EGG, BEAN FEASTS & most recently PIE! I am published by Transworld/Random House and Absolute Press/Bloomsbury.
My next book, HOW TO EAT OUTSIDE is coming mid 2015. A bible full of fresh air feasts, taking you through picnics & barbecues to hiking food for a mountainside, or a woodland bonfire feast and towards to the beach for camping banquet. The starting premise for the book was that food quite simply tastes better outside.
As food stylist I'm lucky enough to work with many great creative brands and companies, including Masterchef and Aardman Animations, and I love this work almost as much as writing books. For more info on my work, have a look at my rather sporadic blog at http://genevievetaylor.blogspot.com or better still my website http://genevievetaylor.co.uk
I had a few turns on TV last year, filming with Paul Hollywood, Jay Rayner of The One Show, and Lynda Bellingham. To my surprise I loved it and am currently working with a couple of TV companies to develop some ideas for TV shows. Find me on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPKl9uCpiCYq-BcHVXv-1OA
I am also a mum to 2 boisterous young kids (who are rather irritatingly fussy in their eating habits) and owner of a whole host of rescued pets, currently two dogs, two cats & several chickens. Life is neither quiet nor simple, but that's just the way I like it. In my spare time I love to garden and am currently trying to make my urban Bristol garden as wildlife friendly as possible. I also enjoy pottering about charity shops gathering props for my food styling / photography work and have recently rekindled my love of ceramics, making a few bits and bobs that might just appear in the photos of my books.
