Charlotte Pike

Charlotte Pike, an award winning cookery book author, award winning baker, food writer and blogger, she set up her blog 'Charlotte's Kitchen Diary' in 2010 to share what she's cooking at home and what she's up to aside from her published work.

"I want to share with you my passion for good, seasonal, uncomplicated home cooking using the very best ingredients I can source. I love to make delicious, nourishing seasonally influenced dishes to enjoy every day at home, often with something special on the table at weekends, or to share with friends." You’ll find plenty of baking on her blog too, as this is one of her greatest culinary loves, "And I’m always having friends and family over or visiting them in turn, so a homemade biscuit or cake is frankly essential."

She published her first three cookery books simultaneously in 2013, and writes regularly for a number of publications on food, including HELLO! Online and The Guardian, amongst others. Charlotte is also an Executive Chef and Tutor at a small number of top UK cookery schools, where she loves to share her knowledge and passion for cooking on a regular basis. She sometimes runs some guest-chef sessions at other cookery schools, and her own private cookery courses all over the UK.
