About the Author

Amy Newsome is a horticulturist, freelance beekeeper and passionate cook based in London, UK. After a career in fashion photography, she moved to the Cotswolds to retrain as a gardener and beekeeper, working with Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir Aux Quat’ Saisons, and organic grower Anna Greenland at Soho Farmhouse. From there she set her sights on the ultimate botanical paradise; the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, completing the Kew Diploma in Horticulture. She is now Head Gardener of The Garden Cobham where she is creating a new garden and restaurant site (with bees of course) within the walls of a forgotten Victorian kitchen garden in Surrey, together with an executive head chef who helped develop Spring restaurant, Petersham nurseries and GAIL’s kitchen. She also works with prison reform charity Food Behind Bars as kitchen garden educator, setting up a honeybee apiary and renovating a disused glasshouse into a productive kitchen garden at HMP Swinfen Hall. She has written for multiple publications, including Bloom magazine, on subjects such as single-origin honey.
