We really enjoyed having her help with our family holiday on Islay. She was fun to have around and very enthusiastic, brilliant with the children aged between 20 months and 15 years old. Her food was pitched just right for the location making good use of local produce and she displayed a practical savvy about food costs and ordering given that everything has to arrive by ferry.
