I’m a theatrical food writer, culinary storyteller, recipe developer, and budding food historian. I passionately enjoy reviving old-fashioned recipes from around the globe - in particular, British food, Victorian cuisine, wartime recipes, and anything in the realm of food history from the 1800's onwards......
Also, I'm rather fanatical about our English culinary marvel Mrs Beeton and American culinary goddess Fannie Merritt Farmer. And so it brings me great pleasure to recreate recipes from my beloved Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management (first published in 1861) and my copy of The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book (first published in 1896) - all of which you'll find here!
Darlings, I employ my elaborate style of writing to compose magazine articles, restaurant/afternoon tea and product reviews for the media. Oh, and I absolutely adore cooking with Jamaican and British 'rum', collecting Brown Betty teapots and royal memorabilia!
So for intriguing interviews, quirky quotes, or astounding advice please ‘give me a bell’, or in this modern world just send an email! And of course, I’d love to hear from you if you fancy promoting your product on my website.
Handpicked from my great great grandmother’s 1903 edition of Mrs Beeton’s One Shilling Cookery Book.
Darlings, take heed!
