Rustie made her name and grew her reputation on her eight year residency as she took to our screens on TVam back in the 1980’s with her own authority on Carribbean cookery. Rustie became the first ever black presenter of hugely popular 80’s Saturday night prime time TV show Game For A Laugh where she firmly established herself as a household name.
Known for her infectious laugh, vibrant personality and much loved recipes, Rustie just loves to entertain in her own unique way and much loved way, she has gained legendary status in British showbusiness.
Rustie has done many personal appearances and cookery demonstrations – whether cooking on the main stage at The Ideal Home Show in London, regional food shows like The Nottingham Food and Drink Festival or internationally at the Gourmand in Paris and Frankfurt, Rustie always pulled the biggest crowds, gave the most interviews and had the most photo opportunities, sold the most books and had the longest signing queues. To top it all off, Rustie delivered the best cookery demonstrations of all the chefs! Every time!
