Every day she makes a 'proper' tea, tweeting it at 5pm - and from that her blog '5 O'Clock Apron' was born and a popular Guardian column on cooking for children followed. Claire wants to inspire other parents and invigorate the concept of family cookery.

Cooking shouldn't be a chore, one meal for the grown-ups and another for the children.
