Get to know me better
I love food and Im obsessed with cooking, simple!
I love food and I love cooking, simple! My style is a mix of my different influences and experiences. I am British, grew up in southern Spain on incredible Mediterranean fish dishes, we’d make frequent visits to Morocco where I tried my very first tagine and was introduced to an array of incredible spices. I was a vegetarian for a long time but then married a Scottish highlander who introduced me to amazing ingredients like wild venison and Pheasant. My travels have taken me to India and Thailand where I fell in love with the cuisine and became obsessed with Asian spices, flavours & techniques.
For me, cooking is...
A way to express myself, and a way to show people I care about them.
I learned to cook at...
The Bristol hotel, Alsur cafe. Chilimosa restaurant and Bendita comida n3
A role model in the kitchen is...
Gordon Ramsay , Yotam ottolenghi and Sam Clark
A cooking secret...
Keep tasting, keep making it better, but know when it's finished.
