Christine McFadden

Food writer, cookbook author and cookery teacher
Christine McFadden is well known for her inspiring cookbooks, regular magazine features on local food producers, and lively cookery classes. She has a passion for spices and seasonings, and a particular interest in the historical impact such ingredients have had on culture, politics and economics.        Five times short-listed for international cookbook awards, Christine is former Vice-Chair of the Guild of Food Writers and has written sixteen books, including ‘Pepper: the Spice that Changed the World’, ‘Cool Green Leaves and Red Hot Peppers’, ‘The Farm Shop Cookbook’ and ‘Tools for Cooks’. Christine runs hands-on cookery classes in her 17th-century home in the exceptionally beautiful hamlet of Littlebredy, close to Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast. She was a finalist in the British Cookery School Awards: Best Use of Local Produce category. She also achieved a hard-won second place in the UK Cookery School Awards: Best Cookery School Tutor category. Nothing satisfies Christine more than sharing her in-depth knowledge of food, either by teaching or writing about it, or growing it. When not writing or teaching, Christine spends her time gastro-traveling – exploring food markets and attending cookery schools in far-flung parts of the world.
