"Rose is well-known as a writer on vegetarianism. Her first book, Simply Delicious, caused quite a stir when it was published in 1967 as there was then only one vegetarian cookery book on general sale in the UK. Rose feels that it would have been difficult to find a publisher, as vegetarian food was considered a bit whacky at the time... Rose has contributed to a variety of magazines and newspapers and broadcast many times on radio and television. In October 2005 Rose began a weekly column, The Vegetarian Kitchen, in the Guardian Weekend magazine.
"Rose is patron of the Vegetarian Society of the UK, VIVA (Vegetarian International Voice for Animals) and The Vegetarian and Vegan Foundation. She also supports Compassion in World Farming, and OXFAM for whom she has written three best-selling books to raise funds.
"Married, with three daughters, Rose lives in Hampshire, and in London. She is a member of MENSA, and her other interests include yoga and astrology. Rose is a professionally qualified astrologer, runs an astrological consultancy – Rose Elliot Horoscopes - with her husband, and has written Horoscope Pages for many popular magazines including Woman’s Realm, She and Here’s Health."
