Le Cordon Bleu trained chef, food writer and author and food Consultant.
I have a passion for all things edible and aim to help people get to grips with produce-led, colourful dishes.
My recipes are easy, accessible to all and are designed simply to delight the tastebuds and improve overall health and happiness. No restrictions, just the sort food you that makes recovering from a hangover that much faster.
My first cookbook ‘The Naked Diet’ celebrates unprocessed ‘naked’ ingredients and this method of stripped back cooking with a riot of delicious dishes that count colours to nourish body and tastebuds.
While running tessward.com, I work as a consultant, freelance food, lifestyle and travel writer. Brands I have worked with include Fortnum and Mason, Itsu, Grey Goose, Sainsbury’s Panasonic and Kallo.
I have also worked in the kitchens at River Cottage, The Ritz, and often host VIP dinners for clients such as Alice Temperley, Mulberry, Models 1 and other brands. I am also am a certified health coach, with a diploma from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
