Rustie is known for her delicious recipes as well as for her vibrant personality and infectious laugh. Her programmes are associated with fun and having a good time whilst learning something new. Rustie’s appeal is multi-cultural and across all age groups and genders.
She worked in her Family’s Caribbean Bakery and later set up Rustie’s, the first ever Caribbean Silver Service Restaurant on Soho Road in the heart of Handworth. It was there that she was spotted by BBC producers of the Pebble Mill at One show who invited her to showcase Caribbean Food on the programme.
Making her name and her reputation as Britain’s No1 authority on Caribbean cooking during an eight year residency on TV-am and becoming the first ever black presenter of a Saturday Night prime time network entertainment show Game For A Laugh, Rustie has graced Britain’s TV Screens since the mid 1980’s and has become a household name.
