More About the Author

Annette Yates was born in South Wales and grew up in the Brecon Beacons. She is married and has two grown-up daughters. After many years living in and around London, Annette now lives near Abergavenny in Monmouthshire, Wales. These days, she spends much of her time designing and making silver jewellery (see

Annette loves cooking and creating new recipes. In particular, she enjoys cooking and eating out of doors. Though living in Wales often makes this a difficult pastime, Annette has a clay oven in her garden (for days when she is sure the weather is going to stay fine) and a gas barbecue (for cooking between showers of rain!). In summer, she enjoys spending long weekends with her husband in their camper (when Annette likes to cook all-in-one-dish meals in her electric wok). Her family and friends are usually the best (and most honest) critics of her culinary creations!

Annette's career as a cookery writer and home economist has been varied. As well as being the author of more than sixty cookbooks she has:

been a food consultant to several major food and equipment companies,
written cookery and recipe features for many consumer magazines,
developed recipes for dozens of leaflets, features and books,
organised and given cookery demonstrations,
styled food for photographs,
run microwave cookery classes,
developed and run a consumer advice line on food and cooking,
edited education publications.

Her books have attracted much praise including, above all, the doyenne of British cookery Marguerite Patten, O.B.E. who said of Fresh & Fast: Meals From the Microwave 'It is an excellent book... not surprising in view of the outstanding ability of both Annette Yates and Norma Miller'.

5.0 out of 5 stars British Traditional Cooking. 8 Feb 2013
By Ms Jean E Martin - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Born and raised in the UK this was of special interest to me since the UK has not been accredited with "excellant cuisine"
I gather efforts have been made to correct this, the recipes in this book are worthy of trying. Not everyone is interested in cooking or baking, but there are some wonderful meals available in the British Isles, you just have to know where to find them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Book 25 Oct 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This cookbook is simple, but thorough enough. You get basic british traditional recipes, not all of course, but for price I thought this was a pretty good value. The format is easy to read and follow.
