Anna’s Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.


I am Anna Stanford. I am a home cook – a “foodie” – and am Mum to Mia, Thomas and Finn. I am not a chef, my background is marketing, but I am hugely passionate about the food I prepare, serve and eat. Anna’s Family Kitchen was launched in July 2018.

I strive to create healthy meals which all the whole family will enjoy but that don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen or masses of washing up. I like to cook using fresh, additive free ingredients wherever possible but I don’t advocate faddy quick fix diets or omitting food groups. As a mum to 11 year old Fussy Finn, 13 year old Thomas (who eats like a grown man) and 16 year old Mia who is vegetarian, I am used to rising to the challenges of delivering balanced meals that appeal to my children, their friends, my husband and our friends. Through Anna’s Family Kitchen I share my recipes and food tips and hope that it makes food planning and preparation an altogether easier task.

In my recipes I love to experiment with the best quality ingredients and different cuisines. I am inspired by countries I have visited and their cuisines, restaurants I have visited and of course other chefs and food bloggers. I always on the lookout for new products and trends but plan to stay true to my values – achievable, healthy, balanced & everything in moderation…..
