She had a passion for cooking from a very early age, growing up near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire, famous for their pork pies and known as the food capital of England.  She studied Home Economics at John Moore’s University in Liverpool and then later went onto working with famous chefs such as Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay and the late, great Gary Rhodes aiding them with their cookbooks, tv shows and live demonstrations.
