James Rich

Author James Rich hails from apple country in Somerset, where his family run a cider farm, and have been making a living from apples for centuries. James grew up helping his dad at work: planting the orchards, pressing the apples to gather the juice, and even helping to clean the giant 80,000-pint oak vats that are used during the fermenting process.

A passionate home cook, as a child James was encouraged to explore food and flavour in the kitchen by his grandmother, who showed him the basics and helped develop his cooking.
