We were delighted to welcome Annie Nichols, a former Frome Community College student, to Hunting Raven Books last Saturday. Annie was promoting her recently published cookbook called Dinner at Mine which is a collection of 52 dinner party menus.

Annie who was brought up in Beckington attended Bath Catering College before working as a chef for 10 years in Switzerland, Australia and the UK. ​She became a food stylist in London, preparing and cooking food for photography for magazines and cookbooks.

During this time she also became a cookery writer writing four cookbooks and recipes for magazines. Annie wrote a column called Cheat’s Dinner Party for Stella magazine in The Sunday Telegraph for four years and decided she wanted to expand on it and create an inspirational cookbook. Dinner at Mine is the result and is a collection of 52 of the cheat’s dinner party menus.

Annie also writes a blog called HotMealsNow at www.hotmealsnow.wordpress.com.
