What was one of the very first dishes you remember eating?
Honestly I was raised on DIY freezer food, microwave meals and cereal. It was only after I left home that I learned anything about food worth knowing. Strawberry Pop Tarts stand out from memory.
Who is your food hero?
What is your guiltiest food pleasure?
Chips and red wine.
Which restaurant to you long to return to?
I think about Brawn a lot these days...
What would be your last meal?
Definitely a really good steak, medium rare, chips or some kind of delicious potato, flavourful salads and lots of wine.
What dish do you cook the most at home? And who shares it with you.
What restaurant T-shirt would you wear?
Too hard! If I'm honest it's a potato isn't it.
Really hot chilli sauce.
Most over-rated dish?
There's loads of dumb stuff like freak shakes.
Favourite restaurant not in the UK?
Roberta's for fun. Mission Chinese for that szechuan chicken I think about a lot. Keto & Kote in Tbilisi.
Favourite fast food joint?
Breakfast in bed or Hotel Restaurant?
English Breakfast Tea or Long Black Coffee?
Martini - Gin or Vodka?
Ketchup or Mayo?
I could leave both but I'll choose good mayo
Stella or Boli?
Definitely both, though I'm more of a Kronenburg
London or New York?
City break or Hideaway?
