Recipe writer, presenter and blogger
I won the Home Economics prize at school back in 1993. I know, I know, quite an accolade. I was incredibly excited at being given book tokens to choose a book with. This is what I chose. Of course, the recipes are all very grown up, mainly aimed at the dinner party generation, but I loved this book, re-reading it obsessively. For it was the first recipe book I'd owned that devoted more space to the description of the recipe, the very reason for it existing, than to the actual method.
