About me

I never imagined when I entered the hospitality industry thirty-odd years ago that a passion for writing as well as cooking would ever have culminated in actually becoming an award-winning cookbook author and food writer, let alone public speaker, stage compere and presenter. But it’s amazing what passion and enthusiasm can deliver. And then of course there was the fascinating foray into TV and radio.

My great passion aside from cooking however, is passing on and sharing knowledge with others. From my consultancy work enabling more restaurants, cafes and hotels to create a greater plant-based offering to working with leading event companies pulling together and then presenting, chairing and interviewing for their live speaker stages.

Previously renowned for my work in the world of craft beer, I have now honed this to the burgeoning world of ‘zero and low alcohol’ beer as a result of my wholesale health and wellbeing transformation.

Last year was a seminal time in my life – my personal transition into optimal health and wellbeing. My cooking and eating is entirely plant-based and I now feel compelled to campaign to change hearts and minds to pursue a similar path for a healthy body, the future of our planet and the wellbeing of all the creatures we share it with. The results of this change for me personally have been nothing short of miraculous. This had led to a further commitment to health and wellbeing through a truly transformational exercise regime. My new-found love of exercise and hunger to know more has even led to me to become a qualified Level 3 Personal Trainer. I have documented this journey in my blog www.manrejuvenated.com
