Anja Dunk grew up in the Welsh countryside where homegrown produce and wild foraging were part of daily life. Here began her love for preserving. She now lives with her young family just outside London where she is a caterer and freelance cook.
Mimi Beaven and her husband Richard, founded the brand Made In Ghent a few years ago. For them, preserving the flavours of the year’s harvest is essential preparation for the cold winter months on the family farm that they are rebuilding in the Hudson Valley, New York. They raise pigs, bees and chickens.
Jenn Goss lives on a smallholding in West Wales with her family, following a lifelong dream to live by the sea and work the land. Her produce – and that from surrounding hedgerows - provides ample supplies for Our Two Acres, her catering company.
The Do Book Company is an independent publishing house based in Shoreditch, London. We produce a series of inspirational pocket guidebooks in print and digital formats.
Our books are written by speakers from the Do Lectures whose ideas have inspired others to go and Do. Our aim is to recreate that same positive change in book form – whether that’s the mastery of a new skill or craft, a simple mindshift, or a shot of inspiration to help you get started.
