Food, glorious food. In every shape and in every form. From books to gadgets, shops to restaurants, a fair amount of my free thoughts are food related. I like to cook and I like to eat. Sometimes I cook what I eat and sometimes I eat what others cook. I don't profess to being this year's Nigella or a modern day Delia but I do ok. At times better than ok and occassionally I cock it up and order a curry instead.

Either way this is my passion and it is one of the few subjects I can rant nonstop about. I have a firm belief that eating well is only as difficult as you make it. Even the smallest effort can make a difference whether it be buying fruit and veg in season to spending two extra minutes to prepare a homemade vinaigrette. It only takes a bit more effort to make Carrot Soup than it does to pop a ready meal in the oven. The rewards to eating and sharing the food you've created is immense.

For me this blog will be a way of sharing my thoughts, my recipes, my food discoveries and my messes with anyone that will listen. Hopefully some of you can teach me a thing or two along the way.

My happy place is in the kitchen. Welcome to my blog.
