The Food Of Love.

  1. Pru is brilliant … I ate many times at Leiths in West London in the eighties when I was a hotshot (not) …. her cookery school is second to none and I have several of her books. I once bumped into her over the broad beans in a lovely organic veg shop in Moreton-in-Marsh where she lived in those days …. I was so star struck that my hand froze and she had to politely ask if I was actually going to take any. She went on to suggest we chat in the next-door tearoom so my husband, I and our then very small tots took tea with her. I have told both girls that she clearly infected them over the scones with a willingness to learn and continue to learn to cook as both are proper foodies, a fact which I am very happy with 🙂
