Emma Spitzer


Emma Spitzer was born and raised in Brighton to Jewish parents of Polish and Russian descent. Her love of cooking started at a very early age but it was her love of travel that took over and in 2002, she started the luxury travel company, Essential Escapes which she continues to run with her sister today. Following her success on reaching the final of BBC1’s MasterChef, Emma has been in high demand. She has been teaching cookery classes and demonstrating at food festivals, running sell-out supper clubs and catering for private dining events. Fress, Emma's debut cook book, brings together a colourful collection of 110 recipes which see a modern revival of some of the Jewish Classics, as well as some exciting dishes which are big on flavour and spices and easy for the home cook to recreate. Emma lives in North London with her husband, four daughters and a cat.
