I often work with my husband, Chef Paul Collins on shoots where recipe development and food styling is required. A professional chef of over 25 years, Paul has an encyclopaedic knowledge of food and is very experienced on working with photographers and clients. Here he is pictured being presented with the Sustainable Restaurant Associations Award for the Canteen at Yeo Valley (2019) by chef Raymond Blanc.
Paul's consultancy business specialises in organic and sustainable practises to the hotel and restaurant industry. He assists in all aspects of the business from hotel, restaurant, pub and cafe setups to menu creation.
