Melissa and Jasmine Hemsley are the sisters behind London-based food business Hemsley & Hemsley, which provides nutritious home-cooked food to celebrities and other clients all over the world. The Hemsleys pride themselves on creating meals that are wholesome and nutrient-filled as well as delicious.

“Melissa and I realised that despite loving to cook and eating ‘healthily’, we were still suffering from everyday ailments such as acid reflux, painful bloating, IBS, eczema and being constantly exhausted from the stress of our jobs,” explained Jasmine, also a model. “We started to research and read everything we could get our hands on, but we couldn’t find just one ethos that we could live by. After many months of using ourselves as guinea pigs we finally found a way to eat that made us feel vibrant, strong and healthy.”

So in 2010 the sisters started up their eponymous business supplying organic food to private clients. Recipes are free of grain, gluten and refined sugar whilst encouraging the use of high-quality organic saturated fats, and the Hemsleys are keen to point out that they are “anti-diet, anti-deprivation and anti-guilt”.

“We offer a modern twist on a back-to-nature way of eating that has infinite health benefits for today’s over-worked, under-nourished generation,” they said. “We don’t believe in depriving ourselves of treats and successfully transform sweets and baking into something delicious without any of the nasty sugars and refined nutritionless flours.”
