Are you a cook?
I lived on a student noodle diet at uni, then experimented in ‘proper food’. As a sports coach in New York I lived with six other lads and quickly learnt to cook!
Any cooking tips?
Whack it all in a pan and see how it turns out. And I add mixed herbs to most things.
What’s your favourite dish?
I’m a true Yorkshireman, born in Sheffield, so it’s got to be a pie ‘n’ pie supper.
And a drink to go with it?
A can of Fosters.
Your favourite restaurant in the Sheffield area?
I often take my girlfriend Emily to La Gondola on Carver Street. It’s small, nothing fancy, with fresh, well-made food and great service.
I always seem to end up in the Cavendish on West Street or Champs in Ecclesall Road. Or The Strines – a ‘proper pub’ for food.
What’s the worst meal you’ve ever had?
Anything with couscous or hummus – forget it!
And the best?
That pie and pea supper with a prawn cocktail starter and a traditional apple pie and custard for desert.
Your favourite TV cook?
Gordon Ramsay for the comedy value.
What do you think of Sheffield as a place to eat out?
Pretty good with a vast range of cultural influences. We book taxis for everywhere from Mangla on Spital Hill to Marco @ Milano!
