Jessica February 2, 2015 at 5:01 pm Baking, Profile, Recipe No comments , , , , , , , , ,

If each WI could be described as possessing its own unique tapestry made up of myriad personalities, backgrounds, skills and interests, then WeyBay Women’s Institute in Weymouth, Dorset, sits in the realms of the technicolour dreamcoat WI. Nothing says it more than the life-size ice-cream cone that greets us one step in to the President’s […]

Marcus Wareing

Shortly before Christmas I was commissioned to photograph a ‘mini-masterchef’ with one of the TV programmes judges, Marcus Wareing. Time Out’s deputy editor Jonny Ensall was on the receiving end of Marcus’ famously sharp tongue. When presented with the Mince Pie that Jonny had slaved over, the feedback was a spluttering, yet good-natured tirade of […]

Between Nigella and Nigel, Louise and I have most of our culinary bases covered. A Nigel Slater cake recipe did me proud this weekend when I attended the wedding of my two good friends in Devon.

I recently photographed workers hero Chris Holmes who famously ‘socked it to the man’ by icing his resignation letter on a cake.
