Introduction In 2007 I was fortunate enough to reach the final 4 of BBC's Masterchef Goes Large. It was an amazing experience and one that taught me a lot about ingredients and cooking. I started my own fine dining business in which I designed and cooked for punters in their own homes. After that, I turned to education and worked extensively in schools, farmer's markets, agricultural shows, shopping centres and even the odd street and market place - just like my food hero Keith Floyd - in an effort to teach people that you don't need to be an expert to cook balanced, delicious food. I've written for many publications including a stint as editor for Tastes of Britain, as well as Times Food Online, Delicious, Olive and local papers and magazines. I've worked with major food brands such as Bacofoil and Pyrex to design recipes as well as roadshows for the Co-op. I was also the proud winner of Observer Food Monthly annual award for my Whisky and Pumpkin Bread Pudding back in 2009. Oh the memories! What you will find here are recipes that are achievable, simple to cook, fad-free, packed with flavour and pleasing to eat. Enjoy!
