About me

Occupation Food Writer & Educator
Location East Boldon, Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom
Introduction Self-taught cook, food writer and educator. After reaching the final of BBC’s MasterChef Goes Large in 2007, I realised that what really made me tick was a passion for simple, tasty food, designing recipes that prove that anybody can achieve success in the kitchen no matter how busy our lives are. I've helped to inspire people to achieve what they want through my writing and educational food demonstrations with an emphasis on family food and I've worked extensively and taught thousands throughout the UK at food festivals, farmer’s markets, agricultural shows and schools. A freelance food writer for newspapers, national magazines and websites such as The Times Online, Olive, Taste Britain, Flavour, Accent and Tastes of Britain.
