James McIntosh Knits & Nibbles His Way Back From Depression

TV presenter and author James McIntosh combats his depression by knitting and nibbling his way to good mental health. His cookbook, Knit & Nibble, has already won an award from Gourmand and been hailed “The Most Innovative Cookbook In The World”.

Raised on a farm in Northern Ireland, James is now based in London. He has won multiple, international awards as a food writer and is also a food consultant and TV presenter. James approached Mental Ideas last week to see if we’d be interested in collaborating with him (I believe the official response was “Get knitted!” “Hell, yeah!”) and will be writing a column for us. What a yarn! 

Mental Ideas also hopes to collaborate with James on a number of creative projects. Expect announcements of knitting (or nibbling – we’re equally interested in both bodily functions) competitions in the very near future! Until then, check out some of his designs below (the Hilary Clinton knitted doll being my personal fave) and check out his websites, below.
