From the simple to the sublime, introducing our inspiring recipes and cocktails
Every 44 Foods purchase supports real British food producers in a fair and sustainable way.
I’m so pleased to be partnering with 44 Foods. Like me, they understand that good health comes from eating a wide variety of quality ingredients that have been carefully and ethically produced.
You might know me for playing rugby, but as a kid my ambition was to have the best dairy herd in the south-west! I grew up on a farm in Cornwall and the countryside has been in my blood for generations.
When I’m not developing new recipes or directing photoshoots, I can be found foraging for wild food with my family, out at sea gig-rowing for my local club or painting the Cornish countryside.
