Melissa Hemsley is one half of sister cooking duo: Hemsley and Hemsley. Since 2010, Mel and Jasmine have pioneered healthy home cooking via private catering, their blog and two best-selling cookbooks. They also have their very own Channel 4 TV show and a cafe in Selfridges - home to a banging matcha latte.
Melissa recently released her new book ‘Eat Happy: 30 minute feel good food’, which is a celebration of fast, real food, all made in under 30 minutes. She is also a proud supporter and volunteer for Cook For Syria and the Prince’s Trust.
In this episode, we talk about Melissa’s Filipino and British heritage and how it influenced the food she ate growing up, how she built her business and she explains how she practices self-care.
