Cookery books

Wendy is very organised, and has the ability to sort out problems while remaining calm and focused. She is always approachable, and is willing to take on board the ideas and comments of those she works with. I very much enjoy working under her clear and decisive leadership.'

Helen Stevens, Saltaire Editorial Services; former SfEP Marketing Director

World of crafts

Any cook who has encountered a badly presented recipe, or any non-cook who has failed to reproduce a simple dish will know that working on cookery books demands a considerable level of knowledge and expertise.


I have worked with a number of prestigious publishers, including Nourish, Pavilion, Harris & Wilson, Constable & Robinson, Foulsham Publishing, Arcturus Publishing and Aurum Press; and have worked extensively with BBC Books and edited titles by authors including Valentina Harris, Jamie Oliver, Madhur Jaffrey and Ken Hom as well as other talented if less illustrious chefs and cooks. I have also undertaken recipe testing to ensure accuracy in a home kitchen.
