My Name is Tessa Patterson and I have always been keen on cooking. I’m married with three children and try to make sure that I give them all healthy home cooked meals every day. My interest in cooking started when I was three years old – my first dish was a sloppy mixture of flour, water and raisins. Not very appetising! Now, many years later my recipes are rather more exciting and tasty! I like to grow fruit and vegetables when I have time and I would love it if everyone would buy local, fresh, seasonal ingredients and cooked from scratch.
