Describing my work through just one job title is difficult; because my professional life sees me wear a few hats: Food Historian, period cook, broadcaster, writer and consultant. I have a great passion for social and food history and in addition to researching food history and trends I have also acted as a consultant on domestic life and changes throughout history for a number of International Companies.
In addition to being regularly aired on radio stations; I have made a number of television appearances on everything from Sky News through to ITV’s Country House Sunday, Holiday of a Lifetime with Len Goodman , BBC4’s Castle’s Under Siege, BBC South Ration Book Britain; Pubs that Built Britain with Hairy Bikers and BBC 2’s Inside the Factory.
Among, other publications my work has been featured in Period Living Magazine( https://www.periodliving.co.uk/discover/collecting-vintage-food-packaging) Telegraph, Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail and Great British Food Magazine and I write regularly for a variety of print and online publications.
I am very fortunate to be able to undertake work that is also my passion and never tire of researching; recreating historical recipes and researching changing domestic patterns.
My blog is a mixture of recipes, food history, general nostalgia and also some craft and travel articles. The blog is an eclectic mix and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it. I try to write regularly, but it is often written in sporadic busts- basically when I can grab a few minutes to myself which is difficult whilst raising three young children.
