Founder/Director of The Food Awards Company
Philip Harben was the first TV celebrity chef, in the 40s and 50s, and was my husband's uncle. So I acquired a half share of his books. He taught people to cook post-rationing and I love the enthusiasm in his writing, but also his precision. If you want to know how to make the best pot of tea or a perfect pancake batter, pull out Uncle Phil's book.
