In recognition of her work, Henrietta was awarded by HRH The Prince of Wales, the prestigious BBC Radio 4 'Food Programme' award, Campaigner 2000. The results of Henrietta’s labours were published in the best selling book - Henrietta Green’s Food Lovers’ Guide to Britain - This book has won Henrietta numerous awards - including the Michael Smith / Macallans / Guild of Food Writers Awards for the writer who made the greatest contribution to British food, an Andre Simon Special Award and a shortlist for the Glenfiddich Book of the Year. In 1992 Henrietta Green’s New Country Kitchen was published and won a Julia Child Award. More? Henrietta Green also works as a consultant.

She also lectures and/or demonstrates regularly, appearing at such diverse events as The Scottish Food Proms, BBC Good Food Show, the Tesco Highland Lecture and the Oxford Farming Conference. A member of The Guild of the Food Writers, Henrietta contributes to various newspapers and magazines and has recently been appointed Local and Regional Food Editor to BBC Good Food Magazine and has a monthly column in the trade magazine Speciality Food. Henrietta’s role in shaping the British culinary scene was acknowledged by House & Garden when she was recently included amongst the 50 top designers in the House & Garden "who’s who of British design for the end of the millennium." Henrietta, the "champion of small producers, growers and manufacturers" was included in ES Magazine's spotlight on the movers and shakers of London.

Henrietta sits on the advisory panel for the Countryside Agency "Eat the View" and The London Food Board part of the Mayoral Committee for London and is a trustee for The Jane Grigson Trust.

The enormous respect and affection of the British public for Betty Boothroyd has its roots in a strong belief in what she stands for:fair play,an unshakeable sense of honour and a passionate belief in the sovreignty of Parliament. Her convictions,she says,are set in 'Yorkshire granite'.Born into a working-class family in Dewsbury,Betty grew up in a home with little money,but one that radiated love and warmth.Her father,a textile worker and union activist,was often unemployed and her mother was forced to be the familybreadwinner.Betty was a bonny lass,popular and a talented dancer who became a local pantomime star,entertained troopsduring the war and went on eventually to become one of the celebrated Tiller Girls.But by the age of nineteen Betty's dreams of taking the West End by storm had crashed. Undaunted,she won a national speaking award,stood for election to the local council and became a full-time workerfor the Labour party.Nothing would ever part Betty from politics again. In 1953 Betty began work at the House of Commons for Barbara Castle and Geoffrey de Freitas.She speaks candidly about those early years,the devastation of losing electionsand the time she spent in America campaigning for JFK in the 1960 Presidential election.Back in Britain,Betty landeda job with millionaire Labour peer Harry Walston and the Yorkshire girl became part of the family.She describes the elation she felt on becoming an MP at last in 1973,the hugedebt she owes her mother for her support,and the full storybehind her role in the struggle to save the Labour party from the hard left. Betty Boothroyd's long political career reached its apogeein 1992 when she was elected the first (and so far - only) woman Speaker of the House of Commons with overwhelming support from all sides of the House.Her term of office coincided with one of the most turbulent periods in Britishpolitics of recent times as John Major tried to hold the Conservative Party together and Tony Blair led Labour to a landslide vistory.She unravels many of the stories behind the headlines and her fight to defend the reputation and rights of Parliament. The unexpected announcement of Betty Boothroyd's retirement in October 2000 brought unprecedented tributes from a wide spectrum of people both inside and outside politics and of all shades of political opinion.Written to appeal to the wide audience which has responded so warmly to her and to the values she represents,Betty Boothroyd's autobiography is destined to become a classic.

Betty Boothroyd: The Autobiography has Baroness Boothroyd of Sandwell, with her characteristic endearing zeal, recounting her trail from working-class Dewsbury to Westminster. The daughter of a weftman, she passes from rags to political riches with the Labour Party, to which she claims an umbilical loyalty. After a now-notorious spell with the Tiller Girls, she started working full-time for the Labour Party, and eventually, after four attempts at securing a seat, she finally won West Bromwich in 1973--the constituency she was to represent for 27 years. Pro-Europe, pro-choice, anti-capital punishment, she was made a junior Whip in 1974 and Deputy Speaker in 1987 before finally succeeding Jack Weatherill to become the 155th--and first female--Speaker of the House of Commons in 1992. By the time of her retirement from the Chair in July 2000, her wigless informality had seen her become one of the most recognisable and popular faces, not just in the House or West Bromwich, but throughout the country.The woman Private Eye cruelly and unfairly accused of having all the charm of carbon monoxide gas in an airtight room airs her story with unstuffy grace and emphatic integrity. Much has been made of the large sum the publishers paid for her story, but Boothroyd chooses discretion over revelation in describing her path from model to Madame Speaker: while she discusses her brief experience training with the Tiller Girls, she includes no photographs from the period, and declines to elaborate further on the three proposals of marriage she claims to have received. Nevertheless, she assesses her political career and tenure on the Chair with splendid candour, from the fight to rid the Party of Militant, ding-dongs with party Whips, the cash for questions controversy, Nelson Mandela's first state visit to London, Gerry Adams' and Martin McGuinness' refusal to take the Parliamentary oath, to the fuss over her banning women MPs from breastfeeding during committee. 353pp. Need further photos or information?

The enormous respect and affection of the British public for Betty Boothroyd has its roots in a strong belief in what she stands for--fair play, an unshakeable sense of honor, and a passionate belief in the sovereignty of Parliament. This is a candid account of Betty Boothroyd's life in politics, and she speaks frankly of the devastation of losing two elections, of campaigning for JFK in America, and the elation she felt on finally becoming an MP in 1973. But her long political career reached its apogee in 1992 when she was appointed the first woman Speaker of the House of Commons. Detailing many of the true stories behind the headlines, she writes of the sleaze scandals that beset the Major government, her feelings when Labour won their landslide election in 1997, and her strongly held views on the role of Parliament.
