Philippa is an Oxford educated historian with specialist training in Art History. A qualified teacher with over 15 years experience as a resident guide and teacher at Dulwich Picture Gallery. For the last two years she has been on an intensive course learning about this great city. A Londoner all her adult life, she enjoys all aspects of the city, from the architecture to the food markets, from the parks and riverside walks to the galleries and city churches. Her particular interests are the quirkier, less well-known places which only a long standing Londoner gets to know.
Annabel Jackson has always been around food. She was raised in a large farming family in the south of England, and began cooking seriously at the age of 11. She loves cities, however, and lived in Hong Kong for more than 20 years before returning to London where she attained an MA in Anthropology of Food at the School of Oriental & African Studies; and she is now studying for a PhD in Sociology of Creole Cuisine. She is the author of 14 books, including 6 cookbooks which cover Chinese or Asian cuisines including her key speciality, Macanese cooking. She has undertaken research into the immigrant Chinese catering community in London, but is also fascinated by how many immigrant groups have shaped the British palate, and contributed to such a dynamic food scape. She's also a wine lecturer and writer, and helped launch a super cool consumer wine app PINGZA in late 2019. She is an Advanced Ambassador of the Academy of Wines of Portugal.
