Simply Google “custard shortage” for a taste of Jules’s inimitable campaigns for good local food: her tongue-in-cheek rant about the lack of custard in her home town set off a chain of media articles from the Guardian to the front-page of London’s Metro and even inspired a book from Penguin: “Whitstable Mum in Custard Shortage.’’ It also marked the start of local businesses grouping to defend their livelihoods against out-of-town superstores.

Jules’s deeply held passion for quality accessible ingredients is central to the SCOFF & QUAFF radio show. So is her wide network of experts: guests have ranged from the likes of TV’s Michel Roux Junior to leading artisans and purveyors of champagne, whiskey, pies — edible insects. SCOFF & QUAFF has become such an institution locally, it was the main show on BBC Radio Kent for a total of nine hours through Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, with Jules showcasing many of her favourite small food producers.

Jules is a regular guest on local and national TV and radio and is influential beyond the airwaves, with a reach of 62,500.
