About the authors

Jasmine Hemsley

Sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley have taken the UK by storm since launching their family-run food business for people who want to live healthier, happier lives. Within two weeks of creating their blog in 2012 the girls were asked to write for Vogue.co.uk, where they are still regular contributors.

The Art of Eating Well is Jasmine and Melissa’s bestselling first cookbook; Good + Simple is their second. In 2015 the Hemsleys launched their sell-out spiralizer, which quickly became a must-have kitchen utensil.

Their 10-part television series Eating Well with Hemsley + Hemsley aired from Monday 9th May at 8pm on Channel 4.

Hemsley + Hemsley continue to cook and consult for celebrities and high-profile events around the world.
