Peter trained as a photographer in the 1960s and spent hie formative years taking photographs of the many bands emerging into the midlands music scene.
However to move onwards and upwards in that career meant moving down to London which he was prevented from doing by a rather strict father ' London !!!! it will be nothing but sex,drugs and rock and roll...you will go and work for your uncles bank !'
What followed next was 25 years of corporate lunches and dinners which fine tuned his love of food which had already been kick started by his french mother ( no 92 and still cooking ) though a camera was never far away.
The banking crash saw him running around like a headless chicken, probabaly a poulet de bresse, and he combined his photographic skills and food knowledge and morphed into the award winning and respected food writer and photographer he is today.
He travels extensively searching for the perefct pastis and foie gras and recently one of his editors wrote ' Peter Jones has carved out a very good niche at the magazine interveiwing local celebrities,reviewing restaurants and writing a walk to follow each month. His wry look at life is always communicated through the magazine very effectively '
He is a member of The Guild of Food Writers.
He has contributed to The Four Shires Magazine,Silver Travel Advisor, YourHoliday TV,Your Letter Box, THe Good Life France and many other publications both online and in print.
He hosts the popular " Jones on Food and Travel " show on Banbury based Puritans radio and has provided photographs to the BBC,ITV and many newsppaers and magazines.
