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.
