Who is Jo Pratt?

Jo Pratt is an acclaimed writer, cook, food stylist and presenter. She is a best selling author of seven cookbooks, including In the Mood for Food, In the Mood for Healthy Food and most recently The Flexible Vegetarian.

Jo has previously been awarded a Gourmand writing award and was named one of Waterstone’s ‘Writers of the Future’ in 2008 to celebrate their 25th anniversary.

When she’s not writing books, you’ll also find Jo presenting recipes online, on TV, in  food magazines and on stage performing live cookery demonstrations and workshops/cookery classes.

She’s also taken an exciting move into the restaurant world by collaborating with three female chefs, Sophie Michell, Gee Charman and Caroline Mili Artiss, to launch The Gorgeous Kitchen. It’s a contemporary restaurant specialising in beautiful global cuisine made with British-grown produce at Heathrow’s Terminal 2: The Queens Terminal.

What is Jo Pratt's cooking style?

Jo’s cooking style initially evolved from working with hugely talented restaurant chefs making the most delicious food – and translating their ideas into recipes for the everyday kitchen. She’s created a unique style and has become known for producing fail-safe, accessible and great looking recipes. They are written with her distinctive friendly and chatty manner, offering useful/practical tips and ideas along the way. The results are impressive recipes that we can all enjoy – whatever our ability, whatever the occasion.

What the chefs say: 

"Wonderfully versatile and tasty recipes you can choose to cook with or without meat or fish, to suit your companions, mood and budget." 

(Peter Gordon)

"As the owner of a veggie restaurant for the last 27 years I've seen fads and trends come and go. Jo's book tackles every possibility in a fun, informed and tasty way. Wish I'd written it."

(Simon Rimmer)
