  • Jennine once came second in a sugarcraft competition, after being taught how to create wedding cake decorations by her nan when she was a child.
  • A former pastry chef for the Duke of Wellington liked Jennine's gluten-free chocolate cake so much that he asked her for the recipe.
  • She comes from a family of writers and has had her writing selected for publication in both books and magazines. One day, she hopes to publish her own cookbook.

Experience

Jennine is a professional recipe developer, food stylist, photographer, and writer based in the U.K. An illness in her teens left her with a unique set of food-intolerances, prompting her to explore ways to create and adapt recipes to suit various dietary requirements. For almost 10 years, food photography and recipe development remained a hobby, but when the COVID-19 pandemic precipitated the loss of her day-job, Jennine decided to take the daunting step of building her own food business. Her food photography and recipe blog, The Marshside Pantry, was born in 2020 and began turning a profit within the space of just four months. Since launching her blog, Jennine has collaborated with various businesses in the food and entertainment industry as both a photographer and a food developer. Her work mainly focuses on broadening the options available to people following a gluten-free diet, and she is passionate about promoting local and seasonal produce.

Education

Jennine completed course modules including creative writing and English, before receiving a bachelors degree in Psychology. She then studied photography with the British Association of Photography.
