Laura Scott Feature Writer

Laura Scott is a trained chef who lived and worked in London up until she got married, had 3 children close together and moved out to Surrey. After a brief career break, while the children were still very young, she took up catering again as a private chef and recently began to write a food blog (

In her spare time, Laura attends to her newly appointed allotment with the aim of growing and producing seasonal fruit and vegetables.  This is the inspiration for her blog as well as a means of educating her children as to where food comes from and how it should taste.

Laura has also joined the Children’s Food Campaign which is working towards improving both the food and the teaching of cookery in schools. She has also recently completed a course in healthy eating and nutrition as well as an RHS certificate in horticulture.  The two courses combine the two big passions in Laura’s life, cooking and gardening.

Her inspiration comes from the use of good quality ingredients, seasonal when possible and the combination of flavours that work harmoniously together enabling their natural flavour to shine through.
