Introduction Rick has been cooking since his mother went on holiday back in 1967, leaving him, his brother on their own with a nearly empty refrigerator. From these desperate beginnings he went on to work in restaurant kitchens during university and after, learning as he went along. He and his wife, the lovely Vicki, have a well-equipped kitchen, a long list of their own recipes and a keen interest in all things culinary. Rick also is a writer of crime fiction and musician of note, so he has a full dance card. Oh yes, and he's a huge baseball fan.
