DEBORAH GRAY has had an interest in cookery since working as a Saturday girl in a trendy health food café in London. Following a spell working in publishing in California, she returned to London and began working on extended cookery partworks. She went on to write a number of family cookbooks and has been a cookery editor on very many more. She returned to America with her family, but is now settled in the Wiltshire countryside where she has access to wonderful fresh farm produce and country air. Her children have recently finished college, during which time she has regularly supplied help and advice on what and how to cook, often while the youngsters were standing in the supermarket pouring over the reduced price items or staring into an almost empty cupboard.
