Rosemary Harris, of Ludgershall, has won a Cuisinart mini food processor as part of a competition between The Bucks Herald, Thame Gazette and Thame Food Festival.
She said the appliance would be very useful as there is just two of them left living at the family home and they have a large vegetable garden.
She said: “It will come in very useful. Our family has left home now so there is just the two of us, but I do enjoy cooking mostly English recipes.
“We have a large vegetable garden so fresh vegetables are a major role in our life. I have had one or two disasters, one really funny one, which I would be too embarrassed to divulge!”
