I’m Thane Prince and for longer than I can remember I’ve been enjoying good food. As a child I gathered everything that the fields and hedgerows offered and if today the stores and markets are my hunting grounds I’m no less entranced by finding wonderful things to cook, eat and share with friends. These days I’m to be found as the Eat judge on The Big Allotment Challenge our lovely new BBC2 Programme.
Those of you who used to read my column in The Daily Telegraph will know me well. Others may have seen me on Ready, Steady Cook! Yet more will have pitched up to one of my classes at The Aldeburgh Cookery School is Suffolk which was rated one of the best in the UK and I loved every minute of my time there. In December 2008 I decided the time was right to move to other interests so I came back to London to become more in touch with the vibrant food scene that is happening now.
I have published several cookery books, including Jams & Chutneys and The English Summer Cookbook. My most recent book, Ham, Pickles and Jam, was published in October 2011. I also organize a monthly cookbook club: https://twitter.com/TPCookBookClub
