Cook, food writer and stylist

Anna Jones is the author of the acclaimed A Modern Way to Eat, picked out as a book of the year and the best new vegetarian cookbook across the media. Anna believes that vegetables should be put at the centre of every table, and is devoted to helping people make a long-term commitment to eating well and feeling amazing. She is led by the joy of food - the spritz of freshness when you peel an orange or the crackle and waft of deep savoury spice when you add curry leaves to a pan of hot oil – and thinks that healthy eating is as much about pleasure as anything else.

Anna worked for many years as part of Jamie Oliver's food team - styling, writing and working behind the scenes on books, TV shows and food campaigns - and went on to work with some of the UK's biggest food brands and best-known chefs.

Anna has featured on BBC One's Saturday Kitchen demonstrating her delectable banana, blueberry and pecan pancakes and nominated for a James Beard Award in 2016. In 2017 Anna was selected as Harrods’s Chef of the Season, bringing out a range of vegetarian dishes showcased in the famous Harrods Food Halls. She won the Cookery Book Award at the Guild of Food Writers Awards 2018 and Best New Cookbook at the 2018 Observer Food Monthly Awards for The Modern Cook's Year.
