Happy Birthday, Prue Leith, born 18 February 1940.
- When you get to fifty-two food becomes more important than sex.
- I wanted to make lots of money. Why don’t women say what they want, why wait to be asked? Do women intuit that it is unacceptable to appear ambitious?
- But what’s the point of writing an autobiography if this big part of your life is not going to be in it?
- Read a lot. Take writing lessons. Stick at it.
- I’ve been an entrepreneur, a writer, a food correspondent. I might have been an architect – but I’m bad at maths. I’m a great admirer of Richard Rogers.
