All about Abi....
Abi started her career in cooking over 10 years ago. After her training in her home turf Edinburgh, Scotland, she relocated to London and worked in Notting Hill as a chef for for Anthony Worall-Thompson.
Her talents led her to working on live cookery shows. In addition to this she began to work as a Food Stylist on several cookery books, magazine shoots and commercials. Her hard work and stamina moved her on to working on exciting projects with Jamie Oliver, Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa), Heston Blumenthal, Baker Brothers and Gary Rhodes.
Working alongside Jamie Oliver took her across the UK and to the States, involving food styling and teaching the values of healthy eating.
Her work has taken her to many countries in the world and that has let her experience different culinary styles, gain extensive food knowledge and enjoy many hidden tasty eateries.
Abi also worked alongside Ina Garten in her beautiful Hampton home. Creating incredible dishes for the TV show the Barefoot Contessa for five series.
Abi works as Senior Food Stylist for Jamie Oliver, working with him and the food team. Creating and developing recipes, styling, filming TV shows & TV adverts.

The job has fantastic opportunities in which she is able to travel and constantly work at finding new food trends. Organisation and keeping up to date is key and part of the post involves meeting up to ethical food standards, environment food policies and food campaigns.
