Are you a cook?

I enjoy cooking and I’ve only been hospitalised once whilst doing it!

Any cooking tips?

Don’t leave pan handles over lit gas rings – see above.

What’s your favourite dish?

A good steak medium rare, seafood, curry… if it doesn’t contain beetroot, I’m happy.

And a drink to go with it?

Aussie Shiraz with steak, NZ Sauvignon blanc with seafood, hoppy beer with curry.

Your favourite restaurant in Sheffield?

For curry it has to be Ashoka on Ecclesall Road; for Italian, we love Gusto; for a special occasion, Rafters.

And pub?

The SheffieldTap, the Devonshire Cat, or the Greystones – anywhere with a plentiful and varied beer selection.

What’s the worst meal you’ve ever had?

At a golfing hotel, where we went to celebrate qualifying in our chosen fields. The youngest diners by far, we were treated to service with a sneer and a waiter standing over us to make sure we had the means to pay.

And the best?

Green lipped mussels, then fillet steak while slowly revolving at the top of Auckland’s Skytower on honeymoon.

Your favourite TV chef?

Keith Floyd without a doubt.

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

It has certainly improved; there’s something for all tastes and budgets. The trick is getting to know the good independents and avoiding the chains.
