BSc(Hons) Food and Consumer Management

Harnan Home Ec was founded by Anne Harnan, a qualified home economist with a Bsc.(Hons) Food & Consumer Management. She has worked in the food and media industry for over 20 years. Her expertise and understanding of creative food projects has led to working with many well-known brands and chefs. She brings a wealth of knowledge and skills to a diverse range of food and consumer projects.

Anne started her career as a home ec at BBC’s Pebble Mill on food programmes like ‘Can’t Cook Won’t Cook’ and supporting cooks in live TV on ITV's This Morning. More recent projects include content for online platforms, YouTube and digital advertising and Instagram presenters, as well as virtual food events.

Within print, Anne has provided content and expertise for numerous cookery books, including for Mary Berry and the Masterchef series and other international titles for publishers like Dorling Kindersley.

As a food stylist, she creates evocative food on film and for photography as well as content for re- brands, launches and events.

Commercially, she supplies recipe development and testing services for food manufacturers and brands such as Hellofresh and has worked with NEFF, Bosch, Siemens and Le Creuset.

She has worked within the food teams at the Good Housekeeping Institute and at Prima magazine and has assisted multiple TV cooks and chefs with live demo events and at cookery schools – chefs like Sophie Grigson, Jean Christophe Novelli, Phil Vickery, and has particular fond memories of the late Keith Floyd.

Anne is a member of the International Federation of Home Economics and has been an ambassador for Love British Food since 2019, helping promote British food and drink. Her work at festivals and events is ideal for publicising great British produce.

In 2017, she co-founded and directed the hugely successful "TASTE Bedford" food and music festival, an annual event celebrating local food and drink.
