Georgina Hayden is a food writer and stylist from North London. Growing up above her grandparents’ Greek Cypriot taverna in Tufnell Park, she developed a love of cooking from the recipes passed down to her. As a teenager, she ran a stall at a farmers’ market and worked in restaurants, before studying Fine Art at university. Her passion for food landed her a job as a food writer and stylist on various food magazines, until she joined Jamie Oliver’s food team where she worked for twelve years. She now writes, develops and styles for magazine, books, television and campaigns.
Georgina will be signing and selling copies of her new book ‘Taverna’ after her stage demo at 12.15pm at the Tiptree Stage on Saturday.
'Taverna' is a journey back to Georgina’s Greek-Cypriot roots with exciting, vibrant, sun-soaked recipes that will make you rethink Mediterranean food. We love the cinnamon-infused stews and the pastries scented with orange blossom.
