Guest Speaker Quernmore WI
"We were delighted to meet Caroline James recently when she gave us a super entertaining talk at our monthly meeting. She worked in the hospitality industry for many years, including as owner of an hotel. A chance meeting at a cookery day with a chef led to a lightbulb moment and started her on the path of another career completely. That of a media agent for celebrity chefs. After many enjoyable years as an agent Caroline decided to pursue a long held ambition to write. She now has 8 books to her name with another one in the pipeline. Do try to book her. You won’t be disappointed. And yes Caroline is as glamorous as her photo!!
Thank you Caroline. "
