Susan Jane White is a specialist cook, a food and health columnist with The Sunday Independent, and former president of Oxford University’s Gastronomy Society. When she was 25, Susan Jane developed a serious immune disorder. This marked the beginning of her nutritional pilgrimage.
She discovered that her energy levels were intimately linked with the food she ate, so she avoided the foods that taxed her body – anything processed or highly refined. And it worked! Two years later she was back to her bouncy, bionic self, much to the wonderment of the medical community. Her first book, The Extra Virgin Kitchen, debuted at No 1 on the Irish bestseller list, gained a cult following and received a nomination for an Irish Book Award.
She lives in Dublin with her husband and two little vandals.
