WENDY E. COOK studied art at Cambridge where she met the comedian Peter Cook and later became his wife. Wendy soon gained a reputation as a hostess at their London and New York homes; her guests were as likely to include John Lennon and Paul McCartney as Bernard Levin and Peter Ustinov. When their daughter Daisy became ill with asthma Wendy began a journey of discovery which included complementary treatments and alternative philosophies. She studied many disciplines, including Rudolf Steiner's approach to nutrition and agriculture. Having discovered how life-changing nutrition can be, she devoted herself to cooking and teaching in clinics, communities and schools.
