Testimonials

The Kitchen Table Dorset

“Jenny came to speak for us as part of our food writer events programme in Shaftesbury. She was a delight to work with in the run up to the event as well as speaking brilliantly on the evening. Her knowledge and passion shine through in her presentation. She makes it interactive with samples from recipes including the best chocolate cake I think many of us had ever had – beetroot is obviously the trick! She also brought soil samples and we were able to pass these around and not only hear from her about the difference between different ways of farming but also see and smell it!

Feedback from our customers has been hugely positive about the event and I wouldn’t hesitate to invite Jenny back again.“

Sarah Rudder (The Kitchen Table Dorset – 19th June 2024)


Sandringham Craft, Food & Gift Fair 2023

“It was a delight to have Jenny demonstrating on stage with me. Her calm gentle nature shone through with her passion for The Love of the sea and the land. Jenny’s inspirational books promoting British farming and fishing give her a wealth of stories and recipes to deliver on stage which she does with ease and professionalism.”

Andrea Wallace (Sandringham Craft, Food & Gift Fair 2023)


Cereals 2023

“It was a pleasure to hear Jenny speak with such persuasive passion and expertise. She is a great ambassador for linking the land we farm and love to the wonderful food we produce.”

Geoff Sansome (Head of Agriculture at Natural England)


St Neots St Marys Rotary

“Jenny gave us a very interesting and thought provoking talk keeping us fully engaged from start to finish. Delivered with passion for the subject, knowledge and understanding.  Even our farmers were impressed and based on the number of questions our members were clearly enjoying her talk.”

Sue Shaw (President, St Neots St Marys Rotary)


Horningsea Literary Event: A Celebration of Reading & Words

“Jenny was a speaker at a book event in our village. Her talk was thoroughly enjoyable and proved a talking point for the whole day and beyond. She is enthusiastic and knowledgeable and her first-hand experience of the world of farming and food shines through. Her books attracted a great deal of attention. They are beautifully presented and give countless examples of small producers who care passionately about the quality of their food. 

As a thought-provoking speaker, Jenny is excellent. It is also reassuring for organisers of events to deal with someone so genuine, responsive and professional.”

Fran Johnstone (Organiser, Horningsea Book Day, September 2023)


Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival

“Jenny was a delight to work with from start to finish. She was generous with her time, offered articles from her book for educational purposes, and compered on our Main Stage for a full day. Jenny made everything run smoothly and was informative and knowledgeable. It was a joy to have her at the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival and hear more about the incredible work she and her family do.”

Bella Scarr (Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival, September 2023)
