Julie Millward

Posted by in Office Updates on 12th July 2018

It is with great sadness that we confirm one of our long standing consultants, Julie Millward, has unfortunately lost her battle with cancer.

She fought it with great spirit and most people would never have known she had this terrible disease hanging over her, she never complained even when she was travelling to London weekly for clinical trials and treatment.

We know many of you have worked with Julie over the years she was with us and have been asking for updates.

TV chefs are nothing new. The Galloping Gourmet (Graham Kerr) hit our screens way back in the 1960’s and there has been a never ending stream of celebrity chefs ever since. These cooks, these inventors, these miracle workers with raw ingredients have been thrilling us with their wares for more years than I care to remember and yet, still more TV shows are announced and new faces appear. 


This flood of talent doesn’t look like stopping anytime soon either. And it is probably down to them that we are seeing more and more people wanting to take up cooking for a...
