I would like to dedicate this tribute and everything that I have learnt in the kitchen to my wonderful, amazing, inspiring Mumma, who left us all very suddenly on May 21st 2012 after a magical weekend with her kids.
She even cooked me my favourite breakfast on her last morning.
I have so many, many memories of cooking with Mumma, and writting about cooking with her. Our books brought us even closer and she was everything that every child dreamt that a Mum should be. She was a Mum to so many children, not just us and we never minded sharing her.
She was my best friend, my business partner, my mentor, my everything and she taught me that the thoughts you have while cooking effect the food you make. THANK YOU MUMMA MAYNE for every meal you ever made, because every single one of them was made with love!! I miss you xxxooo
