Born in the UK, Rachel Grisewood trained as a chef at the Leith School of Food and Wine in London, before moving to Australia in the 1980s to work as a chef. She founded and is the master baker of Manna from Heaven, the purveyor of fine handmade cakes, biscuits and pastries, sold throughout Australia at delis and cafes, upmarket food halls and gourmet food markets. She loves going out for lunch and not going back to work and draws her inspiration mainly from reading books and looking at food magazines from around the world. When she is not working or reading she loves to cook for her family and friends. She hates cleaning.
