With a vast digital following, recipe apps, supermarket food ranges and menus in some of the world’s top leisure resorts and hotels, Annabel is recognised as one the UK’s leading female entrepreneurs and an inspirational role model for other kitchen table start-ups, women in business and parents returning to work.
