I started out as a typical male, assuming food came from ‘somewhere’ and was probably very complicated but, and here’s the key thing, ‘not my responsibility’!
From there I ended up looking after a wonderful, wonderful daughter by myself from when she was about 2 and I had to find some way of feeding her other than microwave pizzas!
Slowly, slowly I got into cooking (many thanks Men’s Health magazine for those cheat sheets!) and before I knew it I was enjoying giving people something they would enjoy.
I’ve always liked good food myself but now instead of looking at something and thinking, ‘I have to got to that place and eat it’ I think ‘wow, looks good think we’ll have it for supper tomorrow’.
