…means lambs, chickens, bluebells and chocolate treats. It also heralds the Country Living Fair, at which you will find many of the aforementioned items. For our brand development consultant Catherine Gee (left), this is the most full-on season in her schedule, as she corrals some 350 exhibitors for our annual showcase of the best British artisans. This year, she and her team have also lined up the crème de la crème of celebrity chefs to demonstrate their skills. “I’m so excited about our A-list chefs,” she says, “but I’m also proud of our CL colleagues, who will be revealing their hidden talents, too.” These include group chief sub editor Michele Jameson (bottom left) – not only a wizard with words but also very nifty with the knitting needles – who…
