Catherine Rothwell

Catherine Rothwell has been interested in cookery, since, as a toddler, she set up a doll's teaset in her mother's Lancashire kitchen. Here, she watched the preparation of traditional dishes, remedies, drinks, preserves and pickles being prepared for a family of six. Since then she has amassed a huge collection of recipes - including many old, handwritten ones which have been part of the family life for decades. She has written over eighty books.
