how it works

jane's cookbook






My book is self-published because it is more an autobiography than a recipe book: A Life in 490 Recipes 2014 is a collection of ideas from friends and what they have meant to me. It was my 70th birthday present to them and me as a tribute to how food brings friendships together.

Here are some testimonials from happy diners.

'The food was so delicious, so beautifully, prepared and presented, and what was so lovely was that each course had a lightness to it, so we ate brilliantly without feeling heavy and over-full.'


'The meal was excellent - the word about the Glassmaker's Supper Club will
certainly spread.'


'Thank you for a delightful and entertaining meal last Friday. The food was absolutely delicious and we really enjoyed ourselves.'


'It was a wonderful dinner we agreed on our walk home. I especially liked the basketry woven theme and the company was perfect. Thank you for all your creative energy. What a result!'


'Thank you so much for a very memorable evening. We thoroughly enjoyed the food (the succulent lamb; rhubarb-frangipane tart and parsnip crisps were my favourites); the wonderful company; and the many feasts for the eyes on display not to mention the glassware and the wallpaper in the loo.'
