An Interview with Sharon Hearne-Smith

At the start of the year, while I was presenting a radio show on Griff FM for college, I had the pleasure of interviewing the lovely Sharon Hearne-Smith. Having worked with Sharon on a cookbook last summer there was no doubt in my mind when I wanted to talk about food and food styling she was the person I wanted to talk to.

Sharon has travelled the world working with some of the biggest names in the food industry. She has worked with everyone from Jamie Oliver, Neven Maguire, Donal Skehan to my all-time favourite TV cook Ina Garten. In the interview we talk all about her work as a food stylist for such well known chefs and also the little thing of food styling for a James Bond movie.

The highpoint of my chat with Sharon was the world exclusive first interview on her very own cookbook, No Bake Baking, which is coming out in June 2014. Her new book sets out to offer readers fuss free quick recipes for delicious cakes and treats that can all be made without the need for an oven. It will rid the world of burnt edges and soggy bottoms!

NoBakeCoverThe launch for No Bake Baking is just around the corner now and to mark it Sharon and Quercus Publishing will be holding a #NoBake twitter bake-along on the 14 June. Happening just a day before Father’s Day it is the perfect opportunity to try out some of Sharon’s recipes and create something quick and delicious for all the Dads out there.

During the twitter bake-along people will have the choice of three recipes to choose from. Each recipe will be available to download as a PDF or view on screen via the Quercus website and twitter feed. Then the favourite photos tweeted of No Bake goodies using the hashtag #nobake will win copies of the book. So make sure to keep an eye on twitter in the lead up to 14 June.
