Hi, I’m Jane – welcome to my new site. Here I hope you’ll find ideas, inspiration and a helping hand to get the best out of food and cooking.
First and foremost, I’m a home cook, looking for new ways to make the everyday more interesting and the special a little simpler to achieve. Luckily for me, I managed to make a career from this passion, and have been writing recipes for magazines and books for the better part of 15 years. Dream job? Definitely.
You’ll find my recipes are straightforward and down-to-earth, with a leaning towards the practical. I don’t scrimp on information – it’s all about clarity and getting the best result together. So, whether you’re new to the kitchen or an old hand, have a look about and let me know what you think.
PS I’ve been rather busy with a bouncing baby since December. For those of you who have emailed queries since then I’m so sorry not to have replied. It’s not my style to give the silent treatment, but I have unplugged for a few months to concentrate on home. I’ll be back in action soon and ready to solve your (mainly wedding cake) cooking queries. xo
