PRUE LEITH ..., 29 May 2014 [cached]
Prue founded the Leith's Good Food Group, Leith's Restaurant and Leith's School of Food and Wine. She has been a food columnist for the Daily Mail, Sunday Express, the Guardian and the Daily Mirror, has written 12 cookbooks (and five novels) and is a judge on the BBC's Great British Menu. Prue has been deeply involved in promoting healthy school food, establishing and chairing Focus on Food and the Hoxton Apprentice. Prue has been a non-executive director of British Rail, Safeway plc, Halifax plc, Woolworths and Whitbread plc. Prue is currently on the Belmond (formally Orient Express Hotels) board. She has also been Chair of the Restaurant Association and of the School Food Trust and a board member of Slow Food UK. Being a trustee of the Food Education Foundation is a natural fit, as Prue, like Catherine has always believed in the importance of educating young people and their families about food and cooking.
