Make it Easy cook book

Jane is an experienced cook and food stylist. Having had a classical training at the Cordon Bleu, she has taught at Leith’s School of Food and Wine, run her own catering company in London and, as a food stylist, tested and developed recipes and prepared food for cookery books, magazines and TV.

Jane Lovett

She has always enjoyed cooking and food preparation and holds the view that cooking should be fun, and need not be frightening or a chore. A good philosophy when one considers we all need to eat three times a day!

Jane gives informative but relaxed and fun cookery demonstrations from her family home, near Alnwick in the spectacular countryside of North Northumberland, as well as in London and other locations around the UK. She also demonstrates at Divertimenti in London, often on contemporary Aga cooking.

The demonstrations are aimed at both experienced cooks looking for new inspiration, and complete beginners who see cooking, particularly entertaining, as an ordeal!

Jane’s ‘MAKE IT EASY COOKBOOK – Foolproof, Stylish and Delicious Do-Ahead Recipes’ is full of recipes, hints and tips that will enable anyone to produce easy, truly delicious, beautifully presented, and crucially, stress-free food, for themselves, their families and guests. Most of Jane’s recipes include instructions for getting ahead. Prue Leith’s quote for the cover of MAKE IT EASY reads ‘Jane Lovett understands that good cooking is more about simplicity and great ingredients. A really useful book.’

Jane writes a regular cookery column for a bi-monthly magazine and often contributes to other publications. She is a member of The Guild of Food Writers.

In her spare time, she loves being outside – be it foraging for samphire on the Northumberland coast, picking sloes from the hedgerows, growing and harvesting her own vegetables or pottering in the borders of her beautiful garden.
