About Wendy Cook

Wendy Cook's fascination with nutrition began during her wartime childhood. In the midst of deprivation and food-rationing, the rich abundance of her mother's organic garden made a profound impression. In her twenties, married to satirist Peter Cook, she discovered the artistic and magical effects that food could have in creating a convivial atmosphere. During this period, she cooked for many well-known names, including John Lennon, Paul McCartnery, Dudley Moore, Peter Ustinov and Alan Bennett. But it was only later, through her daughter's chronic asthmatic condition, that she came to study and understand the deeper aspects of nutrition. Through her studies of macrobiotics and the works of Rudolf Steiner, new insights were gained, including the effects of nutrition on consciousness, as well as on human health and the environment. She is the author of Foodwise: Understanding What We Eat and How it Affects Us (Clairview Press, 2003). She can be contacted via amanda.cuthbert@btinternet.com
