BEHIND EVERY PERSON
THERE IS A STORY, MEMORIES AND NOSTALGIA.
I was fortunate enough to have been brought up around good, honest, locally sourced food and to this day I still remember the smell of crayfish being cooked on coal, large platters of freshly made black pudding and strawberries marinated in red wine and sugar.
Good food should be something everyone can experience and not a luxury reserved for the lucky few. Whether I am walking through a French market filled with giant lettuces, fresh local poultry and an endless supply of cheese, or sitting with a dish of barbequed lamb in Marrakech, I am always thinking about the dishes I could create for my family when we get back home.
I have a true passion for food but, most of all, I am passionate about people who are behind what we eat - the local butcher, dairy farmers, coffee roasters… those working day to day producing amazing ingredients are very often forgotten. They are the true heroes and without them our memories wouldn’t be quite the same.
