I love food and am lucky to be able to work with others who love working with food too and have seen how the food in the UK has developed and changed over the last 27 years.
I started as a cook, had a successful food media career as a food editor in magazines and writing cookbooks and now work as an experienced food consultant who delivers step change strategies for the leading retailers in the UK from idea generation to execution and communication .
I am often labelled as the ‘the food conscience’ of any food business I work with, for my creative and independent food approach, where I act as a food trend leader, innovator and communicator.
Cut my teeth developing my practical culinary skills with Pru Leith CBE-culinary legend and campaigner for good food, cooking for royalty, government and the rich and famous.
As a cook who writes, I created recipes, was a food stylist, wrote articles and features for the pioneering Good Housekeeping magazine, as it revolutionized home cooking in the UK.
Helped mould ASDA into a trend driven, quality focused food business from its trading origins, not the least by engendering food skills that allowed ASDA to launch their premium ,highly successful ‘Extra Special’ range.
Successfully delivered my unique team working and motivational workshops for non-food businesses such as Orange Mobile, Elmwood Design and M&S fashion with exceptional results.
