Recently named as one of Waterstone's Authors for the Future, Jo Pratt released her second book In The Mood For Food (Penguin, February 2007), to rave reviews. Jo's third book, In The Mood For Entertaining was published also by Penguin in 2009.
Her quirky, no-fuss recipe ideas and beautiful food styling regularly appear in various magazines such as Olive and BBC Good Food Magazine and Jo is also Food Editor for Glamour, 'women's best selling fashion magazine'.
Jo is an increasingly familiar face on our screens, from regular appearances on ITV's Saturday Cooks, Daily Cooks and Soapstar Superchef to UKTV's Market Kitchen, Great Food Live and Sky One's Taste.
Jo's experience comes from working with big name chefs such as Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and John Torode on everything from live cookery demonstrations to TV programmes such as Hell's Kitchen.
However, her biggest fan (I'm sure he'll agree) must be Gary Rhodes. Over the last ten years Jo has worked on practically all Gary's books and TV programmes (and they remain good friends!). Jo's unique style comes from her ability to adapt what she's learnt working alongside Michelin-starred chefs to create stylish recipes that we can all enjoy everyday - whatever our ability.
