Many thanks for stumbling upon my website when you were googling Lotte Verbeek the stunning actress, who plays a character called Gelillis Duncan in the series Outlander! You can see why we get mixed up....I hear she can cook quite well too!

But now you’re here its lovely that you’ve stayed and I would like to introduce you to a few things that I do..... Please feel free to hit the ‘About Lotte’ button and you’ll see that I also do a bit of cooking and have been for thirty years or so.

Not only that, I’m also lucky enough to have cooked quite a lot on British television, radio and through the Food Network channel; other parts of the globe for seventeen years – which I also adore doing.

There are various different tabs above....please do have a look at them. There are lots of photographs involving food and many relating to the interviews I do at the BBC Good Food Shows, Thame Food Festival and other food events.

I’ve written a book, done and do quite a bit of judging, and I write recipes and demonstrate products for kitchen equipment and cookware companies.

Thame Food Festival is a big part of my life and I’m the Patron and one of the Directors. The festival in my local home town of Thame and all the food producers and chefs that take part are what make it one of the most successful, if not the biggest one day festival in the South East. I’m very proud of that fact.

I filmed a hilarious, insightful and at times very silly pilot last year with Crows Nest Films and the gorgeous and talented chef – Jun Tanaka.

I met him when we both went to New York with two other chefs to compete in ‘Chopped’ for Food Network US. We both made it to the final and he won......not entirely sure I’ve forgiven him ...and that’s probably why I made him take three buses all the way into the countryside instead of picking him up from home when he came to film with us. As they say, revenge is a dish best served cold!

But....it’s a fabulously good show and we would like to get a series with many different chefs commissioned, so please do watch it and if you are a super rich television producer with great insight and imagination, then do get in touch – you know you want to.......!

So, thanks again for visiting and if you need me and my talents at anytime please contact my marvellous and very friendly agent – Anne Kibel – she’ll book me in and charge a fairly reasonable price and by God I’m worth it!
