It’s nearly here.. Recipes from an Unknown Kitchen

Well there’s been a few hiccups with the printers but it is nearly here. My lovely book. Recipes From an Unknown Kitchen. Drawn together from some of the hundreds of recipes I find on pieces of paper, scribbled in cookery books or in hand-written manuscripts,  I have decided to gather together some of these private records and bring them out into the light to a new audience so that their authors are remembered and the recipes can have another life.

Advance orders now being taken through Refried Books Shop.

Grow Cook Eat

Grow Cook Eat! Sounds like my kind of thing…and it is. This weekend, the 4th and 5th October, I will be at the Grow Cook Eat Event at West Dean. This is my third year and I am really looking forward to it, I meet so many lovely people. Do come along, it is a really lovely event – food, music, some great stands and cooking demonstrations. Looking forward to seeing you there. For more info go to

Grow, Cook, Eat

Coming up soon – the Grow, Cook, Eat event at West Dean on the 5th and 6th October. This is a new venture by West Dean and sort of replaces the Apple Affair they have run for years. It promises to be a great weekend so put it in your diaries now. The lovely Mary Berry will be there on the 5th and Brendan Lynch on the 6th. Plus lots of great local produce stands, music and above all a lovely atmosphere to welcome in the autumn.

and of course I will be there with my books so I hope to see you.
