Sophie Grigson



Sophie loves passing on her knowledge of food and cooking, and spreading the pleasure that creating great meals brings. Her springboard was a youthful enthusiasm for making fudge in a teaspoon over a Baby Belling somewhere in the back streets of Oxford.

She’s come a long way since then, having written around 20 cookery books, including SPICES, published in 2011 by Quadrille. Her latest TV series is Sophie Grigson in Jordan, for the Travel Channel, but her first venture into television was Eat Your Greens/Grow Your Greens (Channel 4 which won the Caroline Walker Prize for Media Category), celebrating the joys of vegetables; To this day, she still gets a buzz from a beautiful bunch of fresh beetroot.

She has continued to present numerous programmes for both the BBC and Channel 4 as well writing numerous articles for newspapers and magazines (she was awarded the Guild of Food Writers Cookery Journalist Award) and featured on many radio programmes.

Sophie now runs a pop-up cookery school in Oxford. Her teaching style is fun, down-to-earth and informal. She hates ironing, liquorice and margarine.
