Are you a cook? An amateur at best, a few signature dishes that I do at home, but nothing special!
Any cooking tips? If in doubt, go out to eat!
What’s your favourite dish? I love a good hot curry, either prawns or potato, with lots of garlic naan.
And a drink to go with it? A large white wine, the Vinho Verde we do at Fitzwilliam & West is smashing.
Your favourite restaurant in the Sheffield area? The Milestone, as it’s stumbling distance from home. Then of course Fitzwilliam & West for their Sunday lunches, the meal I most look forward to all week!
And pub? The Tap at Sheffield Station, a beautiful building with a brilliant range of beers.
What’s the worst meal you’ve ever had? A curry in my home town of Plymouth, it was so spicy it didn’t taste of anything. . As a curry lover this was a complete no-no for me.
And the best? A falafel burger with sweet potato chips at Thyme Cafe. It really hit the spot!
Your favourite TV cook? James Martin, the happy chappy Yorkshireman isn’t afraid to use a good knob of butter!
What do you think of Sheffield as a place to eat out? I love it! There’s so much variety, and quality places to eat, all with individual style.
