Daisy Dining has been inspired by my stunning mother, she was my best friend, who I lost suddenly however she gave me the strength of love, cooking and freedom. Daisy Dining is my gift to her and is in memory of her. I grew being taught to cook by my mother, even having a miniature kitchen designed to sit beside her kitchen as a child so I could cook alongside her. We did most of our shopping at markets and really only went to a supermarket for the basics.
My beautiful mother who did many cooking courses including Cordon Bleu and Di Holuigue. Mum was very traditional in her cooking. I was very lucky to experience evening meals that were more of a dining experience that your ordinary dinner. There was always a lot of thought and love put into every meal. I think I spent most of my life asking for Beef Bourguignon and Soufflés. Which has resulted in me having a strong background in French and traditional cooking.
I grew up enjoying fresh produce and shopping at markets, and spending hours in the kitchen with my mother so this passion has lived on. For me there is nothing more beautiful than being inspired by the ingredients and developing a recipe from the heart.In Daisy World anything is possible you just need to ask.

Please note all food is prepared fresh, and shopping is done on a daily basis as required based also on the French tradition and how I grew up, hence why some dishes do require 48 hours’ notice but well worth the wait..
