Welcome to Amanda’s Table!  My name is Amanda Haggath-Smith. Early forties, married and mother of two boys, keen cook, big fan of “grow your own” and healthy eating.  I love cookery books and my favourite meal is a rare steak and chunky chips.

I live in North Yorkshire but I’m originally from North Tyneside, close to the sea.  We have a greenhouse, two vegetable plots and a herb patch in the garden plus an allotment. Everything I cook, I cook from scratch.  No processed food, low salt and low sugar.

I first decided to write a blog after my eight year old kept telling me to write a cookery book!   I hope you find the recipes tasty and the handy hints helpful.
