I moved from the UK to France in 2005, gave up my business and with my husband, Paul, and two sons converted a small cottage in rural Brittany to our home “Half Acre Farm.”
It was here after years of ready meals and take aways in the UK I realised that I could cook. Paul also learned he could grow vegetables and plant fruit trees; we also keep our own poultry for meat and eggs. Shortly after finishing the work on our house we was featured in a magazine called Breton and since then I’ve been featured in a few magazines for my food.
My two sons now have their own families but live near by and I’m now the proud grandmother of two little boys. Both of my daughter in laws are both great cooks.
My cooking is home cooking, but often with a French twist, my videos are not there to impress but inspire, So many people say that they “can’t cook”, but we all can, you just got to give it a go.
Although there’s now only the two of us at home we still make a point of eating at the table (something I learned from my nan.) Once a month my family come for dinner, its great to have the family sitting at the table, Mobile phones are banned, its about eating, drinking, laughing and more importantly talking.
