Marguerite Patten 25 May 2009
Marguerite Patten
The doyenne of British cookery 

Today's special edition of Woman’s Hour is a celebration of Marguerite Patten who has been teaching us how to cook since the 1930s. Her career began in the war years when she broadcast to the nation on the BBC giving helpful tips on how to make the most of limited rations. She has had countless TV and radio shows, been awarded an OBE for services to the 'art of cookery' and written 170 cookery books. The latest, Best British Dishes, is her last so Jane Garvey visited her Brighton home to hear about her life, work and to sample some of Marguerite’s favourite recipes.

Best British Dishes by Marguerite Patten is published by Grub Street
