Jo Seagar - dubbed 'cook of the nation' by Next magazine - is a hugely successful bestselling cookbook author and TV cook, famed for her catch-cries of 'Easy peasy' and 'Maximum effect for minimum effort'.
Jo's promotion of fresh local ingredients with cooking that should be 'a doddle', combined with her humorous down-to-earth approach, has endeared her to the nation, with the first edition of her classic You Shouldn't Have Gone to So Much Trouble, Darling selling over 70,000 copies.
A real sense of joy and passion infuses her approach to cooking- 'There's a lot more to food than getting nutrients.' As well as her trademark books on stress-free entertaining, she has written cookbooks for novice cooks and for children.
