Prue Leith describes herself as greedy in all senses of the word. Cook, caterer, restaurateur, food writer, journalist, novelist, businesswoman, teacher, television presenter, charity worker, lover, wife and mother, she has certainly been greedy for life. Prue came to London in the early 1960s and, not long afterwards, opened Leith’s Restaurant. By the mid-seventies she was a food columnist on the Daily Mail, had published several cookbooks and opened Leith’s School of Food and Wine.
But it wasn’t all work. Prue writes with honesty of her affairs, her longing for children, the birth of her son, the adoption of her daughter and many other things besides. Prue’s down-to-earth attitude is an inspiration.
Relish reflects one lucky woman’s incredible appetite for life.
