Are you a cook?


No, I can even burn the water when boiling a kettle.

Any cooking tips?


Have your food prepared by a great cook!

What’s your favourite dish?


Spicy chicken with pasta

And a drink to go with it?


Yes please! A cheeky little Chenin Blanc.

Your favourite restaurant in the Sheffield area?


Street Food Chef on Arundel Street. Great Mexican food, attentive service, owners committed to growing the business and creating new jobs in Sheffield.

And pub?


So many great pubs in Sheffield – but can’t beat the Frog & Parrott during Tramlines.

The worst meal you’ve had?


Moussaka at a friend’s house. It was genuinely dreadful. A very l-o-n-g evening!

And the best?


Too many to choose a fave but the most recent was a very enjoyable lunch at Piccolinos with Gil Vasey of Specsavers. Great food, great company!

Your favourite TV cook?

Sofia Vergara (Well… she’s on TV and I’m sure she cooks!)

What do you think of Sheffield as a place to eat out?

Brilliant – widest choice of food from across the world for all tastes and pockets right across the city. In the Peace Gardens area on a sunny day you could be in any of the cool cities across the world. Barcelona can’t claim to have a Proper Pasty in the Main Square can it!
