Anything involving food and hosting family and friends gives me great joy, and absolutely stems from my voracious appetite as a child. I have always loved food! When I’m not eating, I’m thinking about food, when I’m not thinking about food I’m reading and researching about food.
I love experimenting with different combinations of flavors and ingredients. I am always planning the next great meal to cook or treat to bake. As a home cook I like to believe that every dish I make is a personal expression, with each ingredient being specially selected. I strive to put emotion into my cooking, and I believe this reflects in the taste of the dishes that I prepare. I realize that not every combination I try will be a success, but this is one of the benefits of cooking, I can just wash the dishes, and try again!
Hostess & Cook
I cannot think of anything that gives me greater joy and pleasure than cooking for family and friends. Food manages to bring people together, in a way that few other things can. Sitting around a table with loved ones, sharing stories and interacting over a delicious meal is particularly important to me.
Nowadays we share people’s attention with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and emails. It is my ultimate goal that when I cook and prepare food, you will have no choice but to enjoy yourself wholeheartedly and disconnect from the world, except of course if you want to post a picture of the meal from Hostess and Cook for your friends to see.
