When did you first get in to cooking and do you remember the first recipe you tried?

I've been cooking professionally since I was 15, but my passion flared when I came back to England after doing a ski season in France and worked in my first fine dining kitchen. My first recipe was probably the chocolate chip cookie recipe my grandmother gave me.

What's your kitchen like and how do you keep organized when cooking?

My kitchen is the cleanest room in my flat. I am a real neat-freak when it comes to kitchens and I'm always wiping down my surfaces and cupboards. Before I start cooking I weigh out all my ingredients into small containers so that I can just pick it up and throw it in without having to get the scales out every minute (like they do on TV).

What tips would you give to someone wanting to become a better cook?

Practice! And say yes to every opportunity. The more experience you have in different environments the better you will be.

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party and what would you cook for them?

I would forfeit the dinner party and instead go to the nearest homeless shelter and cook them all my favourite dish (chorizo and parmesan risotto) to be followed with a slice of chocolate piñata cake and fresh vanilla ice cream.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

Photography is another hobby I have but I am absolutely useless at anything arty like drawing, painting or sculptures.

Which cooking blogs do you love to read?


Is there anything else you'd like to add?

In a world where you can be anything, be kind.
