Founder and Director of the Larder.
Kay grew up on a farm. While it wasn't a rich home, there was always plenty to eat. Food was homegrown or bartered.
Later Kay discovered that life didn't work this way. She found a food system that's unfair to producers, eaters and the planet.
Kay's career as a chef, nutritionist, trainer and assessor is all about fixing our broken food system.

Helen is a chef of 35 years and a lecturer and assessor in hospitality and catering.
In private service she cooked for the Prince of Wales, who decared her roast potatoes 'the best ever'.
She has a weakness for puddings of all kinds.

Chryssa grew up in Greece, where her grandparents were farmers and her father a chef. She achieved qualifications in economics while pursuing a career in hospitality and catering.

Alison spent seven years as a Community Nutrition Officer at Preston City Council. Her years in health and nutrition have included advising breastfeeding mums and running an independent health food shop.
Alison's food inspiration is her mum, who, despite war-time rationing, made delicious nutricious meals for Alison and her sister.
Andrea's story about food has changed her life. A lover of doughnuts and toast, she discovered an intolerance to gluten, and had to radically re-gear her diet. She felt so much better, she started her own consultancy, Life After Bread. Now she leads healthy eating community workshops for the Larder.
