Allegra on her website

Allegra McEvedy MBE is a chef, writer & broadcaster.

Thank you to Allegra for lending her voice to Cook It. Eat It.Live! Touch to See book for blind teenagers. Allegra described the tactile picture about sustainable fishing, a topic that she is really passionate about. The tactile picture is based on Flora McEvedy’s lovely illustration from the Leon Ingredients and Recipes cook book.

Allegra in the studio

Allegra was described by The Independent as “a caterer with a conscience”, Allegra McEvedy has been cooking professionally for over 20 years, working her way through a clutch of London’s best restaurants as well as an eighteen month spell in the States. Over that time she developed the philosophy that she continues to live and work by: that there are more ways for a chef to make a difference than by winning Michelin stars, and good food should be available to everybody.
