Josceline Dimbleby was brought up both in England and overseas. One of Britain’s most popular food writers for more than 30 years, her cookery books have sold well over two million copies in the UK alone, and have been translated into many languages.  Her first book, A Taste of Dreams, was published in 1976 and won the Andre Simon Award for the best cookery book of the year.

Since then she has published 17 cookery books and was cookery correspondent for the Sunday Telegraph for 15 years, winning a Glenfiddich Award for her pieces on India and the Far East.

A recent challenge was a complete change from anything she had done before: a biographical family mystery spanning a hundred years, which included her great grandmother’s secret relationship with the Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones. A Profound Secret was published in March 2004 to great critical acclaim.

Josceline continues to travel widely, writes occasionally on travel and food for various publications, gives live talks and contributes to television and radio programmes.

Her latest book Orchards in the Oasis: Recipes, Travels and Memories was published in October 2010 and won the Kate Whiteman Award for Work on Food and Travel at the Guild of Food Writers Awards in June 2011.
