Georgina is a cook, food writer and stylist from North London, whose love of travel and passion for visual arts transposes effortlessly to her recipes and pristine presentation. She is also one of Jamie Oliver’s team of trusted right hands in the kitchen and has worked with him for almost ten years. If you take a quick peek at Georgina’s Instagram page, you’ll see straight away her ability to capture beautiful details and to make outrageously delicious food. Also check out her exclusive first interview with The Happy Foodie, in which Georgina discusses proper Greek halloumi and the importance of hand-me-down recipes from her yiayia (grandma). She also details how to create a cookbook, from recipe tweaking all the way through to testing.
In the taster ebook, Georgina writes: ‘for me the food I eat, and the very act of getting that food on the table is hugely meaningful. Whether I have had a brilliant day or a not so good one, I want food that will be a highlight.’ And this comes across so clearly in her writing and cooking: Georgina is invested in creating recipes that celebrate the physicality of working in the kitchen. The title itself speaks volumes about the difference careful cooking makes.
