About Emma Spitzer

Emma Spitzer

Born in Brighton to Jewish parents of Polish and Russian descent, Emma Spitzer's love of cooking started from a young age. Despite never having a day of professional cookery training in her life, she reached the final three of BBC MasterChef in 2015 and has released a cookbook called Fress, a celebration of her most cherished recipes that reflect her style of uncomplicated, flavourful food. Fress basically means "to eat copiously and without restraint" in Yiddish. Emma takes what are traditional dishes from Jewish and Middle Eastern cooking and gives them her own twist, making them easy for home cooks to recreate.

Emma Spitzer recommends Staub


"Staub cookware is not only stylish, it's extremely reliable and hard-wearing. Since using my Staub Cocotte to bake my bread in, it's come out perfectly every time. I don't use anything else."
