I Taught Them to Cook is available now on Amazon Kindle

My headteacher said I’d never get a job if I studied food at school. How wrong she was!

It’s led to a busy life full of eating, teaching, training and writing about food. I Taught Them to Cook is a memoir of the 1970s when everything was changing – our food choices and fashion. Food teaching was locked with out-of-date textbooks and stupid practical cookery exams. My students and I struggled but I was determined to change. And it happened!
