“It turns out that I should have thought about what a year of saying yes would mean when I first started. Of all the things that I have been challenged within the last 6 months, I think David, Clare, and Naomi turning up in the kitchen and asking me to do this talk might just be the hardest. But, it seems fitting that somehow I am up here talking about it when it is here last year that gave me the kick I needed to get this project started.”

Meg describes herself as a professional generalist.

On paper she is known as a freelance creative from Cornwall where she previously worked with Sideways for two years to create 'The Challenger's Almanac', a book about doing business differently, and have since worked with Lily Cole in London to create 'The Impossible Shop', an online boutique that sells thoughtfully and ethically made products. 

Before that came a year of interning in Portugal and a degree in design which opened the doors to living and working in other countries. In-between the gaps came to a lot of travel, trips, and experiences that have shaped what Meg is doing now. More and more making and sharing food has found its way to being what memories are formed around but this is only the beginning. Meg’s Instagram log might help describe what words cannot.
