Are you a cook?
Cooking is one of my favourite pastimes. I enjoy experimenting with new ideas.

Any cooking tips?
Being wheat, gluten and dairy intolerant, I had trouble finding ingredients until supermarkets introduced ‘free-from’ sections. I’d recommend trying them!

What’s your favourite dish?
Salmon: healthy and delicious, with salad, lemon juice and buttery new potatoes, or cooked tepinyaki-style with stir-fry veg.

And a drink to go with it?
We’re fans of French wines, having visited many vineyards, and a favourite would have to be Pouilly Fumé.

Your favourite restaurant in the Sheffield area?
Ferdinando’s at Norton roundabout: superb quality, reasonably priced and you can take your own wine!

And pub?
The Devonshire Arms at Middle Handley; it caters to your every need.

What’s the worst meal you’ve ever had?
The first time I attempted to make gluten and wheat free lasagne. Disaster!

And the best?

At the Hyatt Hotel, Hong Kong, 30 years ago, when John and I got engaged.

Your favourite TV cook?
Michel Roux; as a specialist in French cuisine, he is a man after our own hearts.

What do you think of Sheffield as a place to eat out?
It has a lot to offer: so up and coming, with something to cater to every need.
