The 62-year-old chef is the cover star of Women's Health's May Issue, which resulted in a touchingly open interview about her most beloved recipes. When asked which dish mean the most to her, she replied: "My mother's Praised chicken. She died at the age of 48 and cooking that dish is a wonderful way for my children to be able to eat her food."

The mother-of-two also revealed the recipe that gets the most love and attention from followers. "There's a particular recipe – my Malteser cake – that people often message me about, and they'll say things such as, 'I've made it for every birthday since my child was eight – and they're now 18!' It's so moving to be a part of someone's life in that way."
