About the Author

Sam Stern

As a child
I was raised in good old Yorkshire with three fantastic sisters and one brilliant brother. One of my first memories is of making my mum's famous treacle bread with her and opening the oven to see it. The smell was unbelievable!

As an adult
I’m at University studying politics and sociology. All that cooking is really useful now I’m catering for myself and my mates every day.

As an artist
When I write I just like to chill. Sometimes it's so easy and the words just come flooding out. Other times I get frustrated. I like to write(and cook) to music because it helps everything to flow. I like to be creative with my writing but the cookbook had to be really short and sweet. Recipes have to be clear but you need room on the page for photographs. Sometimes you don’t get to say all you want to say. It is really hard to cut it down sometimes.
