Christine McFadden


Christine McFadden is a well-established food writer, well-known for her inspiring cookbooks and regular magazine features. She writes a lively blog with must-try recipes that reflect her current food-related enthusiasms – from seasonal food and local food producers to cooking tools, food markets and gastro-travel. She has been involved with food one way or another for the past twenty-five years.

Christine is a volunteer judge for the Taste of the West Awards and the Great Taste Awards. She was former Vice-Chair of the Guild of Food Writers and Chair of Slow Food Dorset.

Christine is passionate about Dorset, as she eloquently states in the book Deepest Dorset:
"When I think about what Dorset means to me I experience a sense of peace and wellbeing, along with fizzing excitement about Dorset's incredible food culture.
   I am lucky enough to live within sight of the Jurassic coast in an idyllic wooded valley – deepest Dorset encapsulated. Even after fifteen years I still experience breath-takes when I see the stunning beauty of the light and landscape, shafts of sunlight glistening through clouds onto the sea, patchwork fields, the magnificent trees, the sunsets and sunrises, and best of all, the stars.
