About the Author
Sophie Grigson may have had the perfect upbringing for a future cook -- her mother is renowned food writer Jane Grigson, and she spent much of her childhood in France and traveling throughout the Mediterranean with her family. While working in production management, Sophie began writing cooking pieces part-time. By the mid-1980's Sophie became a full-time cookery scribe, and she wrote the daily cooking column for the Evening Standard and weekly for the Sunday Times. Now she regularly writes for The Independent. Sophie Grigson has written a number of bestselling cookbooks including Eat Your Greens, Meat Courses, and Feasts For a Fiver, written to accompany the TV cooking series, Taste of the Times, and is preparing for two BBC food series: Sophie Grigson's Herbs and Feasting For a Fiver. She is considered one of Britain's leading food and cookery writers. Sophie currently lives in Northamptonshire, England, with her husband and two children.
