About Jessica Noy
Gamekeepers Daughter - Chef, Cookery Tutor, Blogger
The Gamekeeper's Daughter began as a humble farmers market stall in rural Suffolk, selling game pies as a way of utilising the game shot from the shoot (ran by my father who is a gamekeeper) which launched me into the Suffolk food & drink scene. Since then i have not looked back and have branched into private catering, pop-up restaurants, street food and cookery teaching.
It has been an exciting journey into the culinary world with particular highlights so far being : cooking squirrel samosas for CBBC, presenting food critic and writer Tom Parker Bowles with my wild rabbit lasagne on ITV’s Food Glorious Food and working with The Princes Trust.
Food has been a lifelong obsession for me, hugely connected with my love of the countryside: as a child i would go foraging for blackberries in the hedgerows and earned my first pocket money through picking wild field mushrooms for a local pub with my father. Therefore knowledge of the seasons and foraging plays an important part in how i create my menus, sourcing seasonally and locally is not only ethical and environmentally friendly but it means that the dishes i create truly reflect the area in which i live. Whether it be local venison, foraged berries, or vegetables sourced from local growers , i love to utilise the best produce suffolk has to offer.
