The story behind Blues

Sarah, the founder of Blues, completed her Cordon Bleu diploma in 1971 and after worked in a wide range of jobs from teaching at the Cordon Bleu School to cooking director’s lunches for Sir James Goldsmith.

After setting up Blues in 1978 with Douglas Rae she went on to write cookery books and took on the role of governor at Gibbs Green School where she founded the charity Blues in Schools, which ran regular cooking classes for children with learning and behaviour difficulties.

Sarah keeps in touch with new products coming onto the market by judging for The Great Taste Awards, organised by the Guild of Fine Food.

Sarah continues to be actively involved in the running of Blues as well as maintaining a good relationship with the cookery schools and advising students on how to prepare for the future.
