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 by Absolute Press/Bloomsbury.
I have just started writing my next book, EATING OUT - 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. I have until the autumn to finish, and it will hit the shelves late spring/early summer 2015.
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.
