Kitchen spring; Chef and food blogger Natasha Corrett loves to eat well - as does her army of social media fans. Jeanann.
IF YOU'RE giving your home a clear-out this spring, Natasha Corrett wants you to spare a thought for your kitchen.
"We spring clean our wardrobes and chuck out all the old clothes we don't want to wear any more," says the chef and food blogger. "I do a bit of a cull in my kitchen and find things I don't really need. The amount of times I've gone through my drawers and found measuring spoons broken in half, blunt knives..."
The author of the Honestly Healthy blog and cookbooks, offering tips and recipes for health-conscious foodies, Corrett knows a thing or two about kitchens. In fact, she's currently helping her mum, celebrity interior designer and former Dragon's Den investor Kelly Hoppen, to design the functionality of her new one.
