Delicious sun-kissed recipes from the heart of the Mediterranean
Georgina Hayden is a food writer and stylist from North London.
Growing up above her grandparents' Greek Cypriot taverna in Tufnell Park, she developed a love of cooking from the recipes passed down to her. As a teenager she ran a stall at a farmers' market and worked in restaurants, before studying Fine Art at university. Her passion for food landed her a job as a food writer and stylist on various food magazines, until she joined Jamie Oliver's food team where she worked for twelve years. She now writes, develops and styles for magazine, books, television and campaigns. She also writes an online family food blog- georginahayden.com.
Georgina's work is inspired by her family, her heritage and her love of travel. There is nothing she treasures more than cooking with her mum and her yiayia (grandmother). She documents her food adventures on her two instagram accounts @georgiepuddingnpie and @peaandthepod. Her first book, Stirring Slowly, was published in 2016, and Taverna is her second.
This spectacular book is filled with comforting, delicious recipes and wonderful writing. Authentic and heart-filled, this masterpiece of a cookbook gives an insight into one of the oldest and greatest cuisines on the planet.* Jamie Oliver *
