was a great inspiration when I first started working
on the idea of creating a recipe and cooking web site.
Not only did she encourage me but she also supplied
a great many recipes and other pieces which are featured
throughout the site. Her great achievement was to teach
me to cook risotto over the internet!

Autumn 2004 and that there would be no more emails.
I think she will be sadly missed by a lot of people

her recipe for Strawberries

the fights for seconds - has been a joy to behold.
