Alex Stacey grew up just outside Paris and spent a huge part of her childhood watching, learning and cooking in her mother and grandmother’s kitchens. When not in the kitchen, her family’s favourite pastime was travelling around France in their trusty Renault Espace to sample the food specialities of the different regions. From Corsica to Brittany, she learned about beautiful locally grown ingredients, distinctive flavours and seasonality. Although her childhood dream had been to open a restaurant, a passion for History took her to the UK for her studies and then to London, where she worked in Arts PR. Having two children of her own spurred her on to revisit and rediscover all the simple comforting recipes she loved so much as a child. In recent years she has documented these dishes on her Instagram account @frenchfamilyfood and is passionate about the delicious, colourful and feelgood food she prepares daily for her family.
