Sara's experience and passion for cooking shine through in her contributions to Good Food
Sara has spent over 20 years in the food publishing business and remains as passionate as ever about the work she does.
After working as a food and drink editor on Living Magazine and Woman & Home, she began working for Good Food on a freelance basis, devising recipes and attending photo shoots. She became part of the inhouse team in 2002 as Food projects editor.
Past and present
Sara edited Easy Cook, Good Food's sister magazine which she created and launched in the summer of 2004.
Sara rejoined the Good Food team as Food director, the most senior cookery role on the magazine, before stepping aside in 2009 to pursue other projects.
- What's your favourite recipe and why?
- While I love French food, the food that I never get tired of is an Indian curry. It is the only food that I can eat day in day out when I am on holiday - even for breakfast. I'm sure it is addictive. To me the blending of the spices is a real art. Indian chefs don't get as much credit for it as they should.
- What was the first thing you remember cooking?
- A Victoria sandwich that ended up like a frisbee. I had eaten so much of the creamed mixture while I was mixing it that I threw out all the rest of the quantities - the cake was more like a biscuit.
- Who do you admire, and what would you cook for them?
- I'd love to cook for the granddad that I have never met - he died years before I was born. My dad tells me great stories about him eating mangoes in the bath and keeping live eels in the cellar. He sounds quite a foodie. I think I would cook a Thai meal as the flavours of lemongrass and fish sauce would be so far away from anything that he would have tasted before. He would be amazed.
