Cookery Demonstrator, Home Economist and Food Stylist

I am one of those fortunate people who have been able to turn an abiding love affair with food into a living! After an unlikely career in banking I retrained some years ago and I have spent the last fifteen years as a home economist, cookery presenter and food stylist and I have built up a wealth of experience. Having run a cookery theatre for the last eight years I am now concentrating on my freelance work. My skill set includes presenting and demonstrating recipes to diverse audience groups, writing and testing recipes and using my flair and creativity on food styling projects. I was a finalist in Gordon Ramsay’s search to find the new Fanny Cradock for his F Word programme on Channel Four in 2007 and since that fateful evening cooking for Gordon on air, I have made numerous radio and TV appearances. I am as happy in front of the camera as behind it and have worked as a home economist for shopping channel projects as well as being a model and presenter. As a home economist I work regularly with many of the country’s top chefs such as James Martin, Michael Caines and Rosemary Shrager.


‘Denise is a force of (Mother) Nature. In what can often be a pressured broadcast environment she is lively, professional and witty. Crucially, she delivers accessible creations for the home-cook with a frisson of fun and just a touch of postcard humour.’

Richard Spurr
National and regional TV and radio presenter

‘I’ve known and worked with Denise for many years. Her natural flair for presenting, demonstrating and training, as well as her ability to communicate with people at all levels, regularly earns her praise and admiration from all areas of our business. As a brand ambassador, Denise is second to none.’

Adrian Vickers
Head of Retail, Brand and Licensing

‘Denise is a very personable lady and a great team player who has proved to be an absolute asset when we worked together for Denby Brands Ltd. Denise provided hospitality and entertaining at both Domestic and International Trade shows. She was extremely well respected by our customers with whom she built very credible relationship.  There was never any hesitation to “go the extra mile” to help the team and the customer. Denise has always provided a “first class” service at customer events and trade shows and the standard of food enjoyed by both customers and members of the Denby team has always been exceptional. Denise has also appeared on CJO, South Korea, which is the number one shopping channel – her appearance included preparation, cooking and serving of food together with explaining the benefits of cooking with Denby Cookware.’

Steve Rowley
Sales and Marketing Director, Royal Crown Derby

‘Denise was an invaluable member of the Taste the Seasons team from Autumn 2012. She would submit wonderful recipes and as a talented food stylist, Denise made the job easier for our photographers. Her effervescent personality, her passion for good food and her sheer zest for life make Denise an absolute pleasure to work with.’
