About this author

Dame Agnes Graham Jekyll DBE (12 October 1861 – 28 January 1937) was a Scottish-born British artist, writer and philanthropist. The daughter of William Graham, Liberal MP for Glasgow (1865-1874) and patron of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, she was educated at home by governesses, and later attended King's College London.

She was created a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) in 1918 for her public works. Lady Jekyll first published Kitchen Essays (1922) in The Times, reprinted in 2001 by Persephone Books, "in which she was persuaded to pass on some of the wit and wisdom of her rare gift for clever and imaginative housekeeping".
