Hello, my name is Dylan.
Welcome to my Cracking Good Recipes web site!
I am a 14 year old social entrepreneur and the UK's youngest successful crowdfunder. I am also the First Young Ambassador for Crowdfunding in the UK. I love to cook and have been helping in the kitchen at home since I was 3 years old.
My first recipe book was published in 2013 when I was 7 years old. It is a book full of my own seasonal recipes. My second book called 'Food for Thought' was published in May 2017 following a second successful crowdfund (to raise money to get the books printed). I have been selling these books for international charity Action Against Hunger and have raised just over £1000 for them.
Food for Thought has an international flavour with recipes from across the world. It also has a food 'passport' with facts about the countries and stickers.
You can find out all about how I use my love of cooking to help others. These are some of the charities I have helped so far:
I have had some brilliant support from celebrities including:
Raymond Blanc, Nigel Slater, Mary Berry, Ainsley Harriott, Ken Hom, Founder of Ella's Kitchen Paul Lindley, Aardman Animations, and Founder of Moshi Monsters Michael Acton Smith.
