Recipe Book

I have developed and cooked many recipes from a large number of  great recipe books. This is my growing collection of recipes that I want to share with you.

I create courses for the WI Cookery School (click here to book a course) and I thought it would be useful to share my Christmas recipes with you.

Christmas is a  time for enjoyment and being with the family. Cooking can be time-consuming and keep you away from the family. I have written a guide to Christmas and some recipes that can help you enjoy Christmas. Please download this free guide.

Planning for Christmas

Here are some the many recipes I have created, used and cooked for clients. I have also used them on air or demonstrated at food festivals, including the Wallingford Food Festival!

I hope you enjoy trying them and please contact me if you have any questions or comments.
