Notes on Trish

Born in Belfast but living in France for the last 20 years Trish Deseine is now one of France's most successful food writers having written nine books and sold over 300,000 copies worldwide. French Elle describes her as an 'Irish tornado'. The Irish Independent calls her the 'French Martha Stewart'.

Trish Deseine has freely developed her passion for cooking. Being neither a trained cook, nor a home economist,Trish's approach is far from a French chef's Cartesian obsession with doing things the right way. Her recipes are pragmatic and forgiving and she shows the viewer how to present food in the most simple, beautiful and impressive manner.

Trish's first book, Petits Plats Entre Amis,was an instant hit and won the prestigious Laduree and Seb prizes. Je Veux du Chocolat is a worldwide bestseller and her latest book,Ma Petite Robe Noire,was awarded one of France's best-known cookery culinary honours, the Prix La Mazille at Périgueux (she is the first non-French author to win it). Trish is now one of France's best-known authors, is featured regularly in French Elle, and writes a monthly column for the food magazine Regal as well as reviews for Le Fooding and Time Out Paris.

"She has reconciled women with cooking, taken the guilt out of being a chocolate addict and shaken up the publishing world. This Irish tornado plunged through love into French cooking and has given her fans books full of ideas and easy recipes".
- French Elle
