Sophie’s favourite plaything by the age of three was her toy cooker; by ten she was baking her own cakes and by fourteen her professional kitchen career started. Her favourite books were cookbooks, and her favourite pastime was eating good food… nothing much has changed! Sophie moved to London and studied at Butler’s Wharf Chef School to obtain her Advanced Chef Diploma. She then went to work in some of the capital’s best restaurants, including The Greenhouse, The Lanesborough, and The Embassy.
She competed in, and won numerous competitions, which resulted in her being nominated for The Craft Guild of Chefs ‘Young Chef of the Year Award’ at 19.

Always being interested in new subjects, Sophie looked into the nutritional side of food and discovered another passion- healthy eating! Sophie then became family chef for a world-famous supermodel for two years and cooked for various VIP clients. Using her knowledge in healthy eating, she was Head Chef of Channel Four’s ‘The Fit Farm’ programme. Her first cookbook ‘Irresistible’ was published by Cassell Illustrated in March 2005.

Since then she has spread her time between TV appearances, magazine articles, supporting her favourite charities, menu consultancy and catering for fantastically glamorous events. She is currently recording a new prime time cooking show, writing a new cookbook and has helped develop a new luxurious bath and beauty range with Tesco. So watch this space!
