I studied Art and Design at Loughborough College of Art and Design. Among other things, I now use my creativity to write cookbooks. I have been married to Ron for over 30 years and we have two sons, Ben and Tim, who have left home and are starting families.
When my sister and I were quite young, probably 5 and 6 years old, we started to cook, mainly cakes, biscuits and simple meals. By the time I was 12, we would cook Sunday lunch. I love this heritage and am passionate about good food. There is nothing I love more than having a house full of people to feed.
I started out by writing out first student cookbook back in 2001. Since then we have written new editions including vegetarian versions, graduate versions and a family cookbook. We have just finished two new books called Nosh Quick & Easy and Nosh Gluten-Free. Both these books have been inspired by comments we get from people that use our books and so we are really excited to see how they work for people in the real world.
