Life is too short to eat bad food (or drink instant coffee), I LOVE cooking, in fact I love cooking more than eating. I started aged 3 helping my Mum in the kitchen, at the age of 11 I cooked my first Christmas Dinner from scratch – including the cake and pudding. I’m an instinctive cook and I love experimenting, which was useful when living on an African Island cut off from easy supply routes with guests expecting 3 meals a day at the Lodge. I also love cookery books, although more as inspiration and food po*n than to cook directly from, at the last count I had over 200 *eek*.
I will always try to credit where inspiration for my ‘recipes’ come from.
