Anna Jones is a cook, food writer and stylist.
She worked for many years as part of Jamie Oliver’s food team – styling, writing and working behind the scenes on books, TV shows and food campaigns – and went on to work with some of the UK’s biggest food brands and best-known chefs.
Anna believes that vegetables should be put at the centre of every table, and is devoted to helping people make a long-term commitment to eating well and feeling amazing. She is led by the joy of food – the spritz of freshness when you peel an orange or the crackle and waft of deep savoury spice when you add curry leaves to a pan of hot oil – and thinks that healthy eating is as much about pleasure as anything else.
Anna is the author of the acclaimed A Modern Way to Eat, picked out as a book of the year and the best new vegetarian cookbook across the media. Her next book, A Modern Way to Cook, will be published in July 2015.
She lives, writes and cooks in Hackney, East London.
