About the cook

I make no claims to be a professional chef, or even a gifted amateur cook. Nor do I claim to be a gourmand or a foodie Рobsessed with the finest food and drink. But I do enjoy cooking, I find cooking from scratch to be relaxing and rewarding. I am largely self-taught apart from the modest range of dishes my mother taught me.

The tips, hints, recipes and random food related thoughts I offer should be taken as my opinion, based on my own experiences and mostly cooked in my own kitchen. While I endeavour to offer healthy and safe information I accept no liability for errors and omissions or the variations inherent in other kitchens.
