I studied Art and Design at Loughborough College of Art and Design. Among other things, I now use my creativity to write cookbooks. I have been married to Ron for over 30 years, and we have two sons, Ben and Tim, who have now graduated from Uni. When my sister and I were quite young, probably five and six years old, we started to cook; mainly cakes, biscuits and simple meals. By the time I was twelve, we could cook Sunday lunch. I love this heritage and am passionate about good food. There is nothing I like better than a house full of people to feed.
