Welcome to the Website of Tom Bridge - Cookery Detective

I have been involved with the history of British cookery for over thirty years, working in television and radio slots with the BBC. I write for several local newspapers and enjoy guest chef appearances for all area's of the catering sector.

The detective in me brings me to every corner of the world looking to see how food came to our tables, talking about and demonstrating the food from yesteryear.

As a catering consultant I am involved in all aspects of the industry and am often called on to give advice on setting up hotels/restaurants.Consultancy work includes giving advice to multiple food companies with regards to production from devising a recipe product right through to seeing it being presented and succesfully sold.

My favourite pastime is reading antique cookery books and I have a collection of very rare books. I have cookery books published and write on any subject.
