Lorraine Pascale is joining us for a live webchat on Wednesday 12 September at midday until 1pm. Lorraine's latest book Fast, Fresh and Easy Food aims to help solve the dilemma of what to cook for the family after a busy day. Each main dish has an accompanying side dish and all recipes can be prepared in real time with no prepping or chopping work beforehand. We're delighted that Lorraine has agreed to share two of the recipes from the book with us; Sri-Lankan Chicken Curry and Lemon and poppy seed cake. Lorraine's series to accompany the book is currently running on BBC2 at 8.30pm on Mondays.

Lorraine became a model at 16 and was the first black British model to appear on the cover of American Elle. Keen to ensure a future career after modelling, she signed up for a diploma cookery course at Leighs School of Food and Wine. She's since graduated from Thames Valley University in Culinary Arts with a first class honours degree. Lorraine established herself as a specialist cake maker and has her own shop, Ella's Bakehouse in Covent Garden.

Having been adopted as a baby and lived for some time with foster parents, Lorraine is patron of TACT, the UK's largest fostering and adoption charity. She now lives with her daughter in London.

Join Lorraine for a chat on Wednesday at midday or post a question to her in advance here.
