Lucie has been in and out of kitchens since she was a child learning from her Mum's wisdom in a bit of this and a pinch of that kind of way. She is inspired by the wealth of great produce on her doorstep, local farmers who care about their animals and the meat or milk they produce, happy chickens and artisan producers who take great pride in the food they produce. She cooks with flavour, love, respect and flair not fuss and faff! From scratch, to order just for you.
