about

variably employed actor, part-time amateur cook, full-time father and sports fan. soft spot for shoes, hats and polonecks. but this is not about shoes, hats and polonecks, it is more about food and putting different kinds of it together. in a way that isn’t too strict or anything.

because i never record or remember whatever recipe i’ve just created or amalgamated or botched. so this is a space for those discoveries, variations and schoolboy errors. i am not very good at measuring things out. i am a big fan of the pinch, the splash, the sprinkle. the trusty handful. the mighty dollop. the relaxed improvisation in cooking, or the fearless experiments and adaptations means no meal is ever exactly the same as it was before. like theatre. i’ve always enjoyed scouting a range of recipes, and then absorbing various elements i like into something new. preferably always with good, fresh ingredients. but i’m no chef. this is not ballroom cooking. it is dancing on your own to van morrison singing into a wooden spoon cooking. sort of thing. it is not being afraid to look a bit stupid cooking. ideally with shoes you can dance in, a hat and a poloneck.
