Are you a cook?
Yes I really enjoy cooking however with a mum who is a trained professional chef, you feel like your culinary delights are less delightful and more like an edible substance on a plate.
Any cooking tips?
Sweet chilli sauce makes everything better.
What’s your favourite dish?
I love brunch. Normally some variation on avocado and poached eggs.
And a drink to go with it?
It’s a cliche but nothing beats a good cup of tea.
Your favourite restaurants in the Sheffield area?
Homemade in Nether Edge for brunch or Bistro Pierre for a good steak frites.
The Sheffield Tap, great decor and they even host the Yorkshire Wine School so I can look like a wine pro in front of my friends.
What’s the worst meal you’ve ever had?
I once did a job where a group of 16 year olds had to cook for me as their camp leader. I was subject to a very questionable sweet and sour dish.
And the best?
I know everyone thinks their mum is the best cook, but I still dream about the time she made a delectible beef wellington for my birthday.
Your favourite TV cook?
Having gone to university in Newcastle, the Hairy Bikers fill the friendly Geordie-shaped hole in my life.
What do you think of Sheffield as a place to eat out?
There are some great spots and i’m currently loving Made by Jonty and Tamper for modern, fresh food.
