‘Thank you so much for the lovely article, my mum is very proud indeed. It’s the first time anyone has written about what I do with a genuine understanding of the spirit of the thing, and it’s such a well crafted piece, I have to be honest I got quite overexcited about it and I think it might get framed. You made a very tired person very happy indeed yesterday.’ Polly Betton, interviewed for Sunday Telegraph Stella about life as a female foodie.
‘I just wanted to say thank you for your article. It was everything that you said it would be. You have restored my faith. Thank you.’ Jenni Cross, interviewed for Woman’s Own about her story.
