Caroline Bretherton has spent the last 20 years following her passion for food within the food business in many different capacities. After running a highly successful London based catering company for a number of years she expanded the company to include a café in the heart of London’s Notting Hill – and all day eatery serving fresh, seasonal food.
Her career soon grew to include the UK television market, with guest chef appearances on the Food Network as well as other television networks, followed by a co-presenting role on the Taste Network’s flagship programme, Real Food.
Following a break to concentrate on her young family, Caroline returned to the food business with a short stint as the ‘Family Food Writer’ for The Times Weekend Magazine. Her writing, which has always been her passion, took off and she soon produced her first book ‘The Allotment Cookbook’, which was published in 2011.
Since then she has published the hugely successful ‘Step-by-Step Baking’ (2011), ‘The Pie Book’ (2013) and ‘Family Kitchen Cookbook’ (2013), as well as ‘The American Cookbook’ (2014),‘Desserts’ (2015), ‘Super-Clean Super Foods’ (2017) and ‘Sprouted’ (2017). She has also contributed recipes to publications such as the Daily Telegraph and worked with well-known nutritionist Jane Clarke to contribute recipes to her book ‘Complete Family Nutrition’ (2014).
Her new book ‘Pasta Reinvented’ is hitting the shelves in 2018. All her books have been published internationally by Dorling Kindersley, and translated into several languages.
2012 saw a move for her family from the UK to the USA, where she lives with her husband and two teenage sons.
