Polly Guy grew up deep in the Norfolk countryside on a smallholding farm which was self-sufficient. Polly’s parents were both full time doctors in their own practice so at an early age Polly picked fresh fruit from the trees & vegetables from the garden and prepared supper learning how to make lovely apple jacks and pies. This hobby turned into a necessity given how busy her parents were but it soon became a passion.
Polly grows her own herbs & vegetables on her allotment (she’s even got her own tractor like she used to use as a child). She understands and promotes the health benefits of fruit & veg for healthy body and skin. Her daughter is a perfect example of how children will eat vegetables if they’re presented as part of an attractive meal using her own jazzy culinary ideas.
Polly studied cookery for 2 years at Norwich City College. Whilst studying she cooked for outside catering functions such as the Queens Jubilee, Newmarket Racecourse & the Princes trust.
Subsequently she worked in several restaurants including working with Michelin Star chef Aaron Patterson at Hambleton Hall, Rutland.
Polly had some time out of the industry & became a very successful glamour model.
In 2011 Polly was a winner on Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me but at this time she was making a career out of property development as well as the modelling.
In 2016 Polly was invited onto Come Dine With Me Champion of Champions. Polly won & this led to a cookery program on local TV station Mustard TV and a bit of presenting on BBC Radio Norfolk. Polly was pleased to be able to help the East Anglian Air Ambulance with proceeds from the winning cheque.
Polly now has a successful chutney & preserves business with an emphasis on creating tasty flavours but using as little salt & sugar as necessary. This success has enabled her to provide help with the local food bank. Polly is passionate about creating nutritious meals & once again cooking is her passion.
