Health guru Deliciously Ella to cook up storm at Manchester Food and Drink Festival

Ella Mills, the award winning cookery author best known for her blog Deliciously Ella, will be making an appearance tomorrow at the Manchester Food and Drink Festival.

The famous Instagram ‘health guru’s’ blog, deliciouslyella.com, exploded with popularity in 2012 after she started to share her healthy recipes with the world.

She said: “Deliciously Ella is all about celebrating what you can do with delicious, plant based ingredients. My recipes are vegetarian, wheat and refined sugar free, but it’s not about diet and deprivation.”

The idea of starting the healthy eating blog was all due to an illness Ella was diagnosed with in 2011 and since then she’s not looked back.

She said: “It’s about the way we feel, rather than the way we look, but changing my lifestyle has changed me in so many ways, including making me so much stronger, again both physically and mentally.”

As part of her growing empire, Deliciously Ella has created a ‘healthy natural recipe’ app, released three cookbooks – the first of which was the best-selling debut cookbook ever in the UK - and more recently, alongside her husband, opened up three delis in and around London.

The cover girl of the most recent Women’s Health magazine will be cooking up a treat at two pop up banquets in Albert Square at 12.30pm and 7.30pm.  

She will also be holding a Q&A and book signing session at 4pm.
