I grew up in an old house on a remote Scottish island. It was a beginning that gave me a keen appreciation of where food comes from, it's seasonality, it's cost, and the effort that goes into getting it on the table. My working life has been spent in kitchens, none of them glamorous, around books, and in the wine trade, it's all experience that has built on those early lessons. I started blogging as Desperate Reader in 2009 - it was always going to have a foody element given that I've never been able to resist a good cookbook, or sharing my enthusiasm for them.
