Are you a cook?
I can cook reasonably well, but I’m more of a baker. I’d much rather make (and eat) courgette brownies than cook them as a vegetable.
Any cooking tips?
I used to find cooking stressful so my top tip would be: relax and enjoy it. You’re probably not going to kill yourself so don’t worry!
What’s your favourite dish?
I love comfort food: pies and stews. But my favourite has to be a proper roast with crispy-soft roast potatoes.
And a drink to go with it?
I prefer water with a meal. Unless I’m in Wagamama, then plum wine every time!
Your favourite restaurant in the Sheffield area?
I’ve had some delicious meals in Thyme Café, Broomhill. I also really like Tamper: Seller’s Wheel.
Somewhere with entertainment – pool, board games, or live music, but not TV.
What’s the worst meal you’ve ever had?
In Hungary I was given pasta covered in sugar and ground nuts – it tasted so wrong!
And the best?
A big Sunday roast, home cooked by friends: great company and lots of banter.
Your favourite TV cook?
Jamie Oliver. I once watched Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals back-to-back for two hours!
What do you think of Sheffield as a place to eat out?
Sheffield is a great for eating out – too good actually – there are so many good places nearby I never know where to choose!
