Trish Deseine

I'm a cookbook author. Originally from Ireland, I have lived in Paris for over 25 years. Many of my books - 12 in French & 2 for Kyle Cathie in the UK - have been translated into several languages and won awards. My cooking programmes were broadcast by RTE, Good Food Channel & throughout the BBC Lifestyle network.

In 2010 I was named one of French Vogue's 40 women of the decade.

I write sweet recipes for French ELLE and contribute to The Irish Times Magazine food pages. My latest book in French, with photos by Deirdre Rooney , 'Grande Table, Petite Cuisine', won Best in World in the easy recipes category at the 2013 Gourmand Awards.

'Gourmande. Carnet Parisien', about my years of loving food in Paris (Flammarion) will be published in France, US & UK in September 2013. The English language version's title is "The Paris Gourmet."
