Are you a cook?
I like to think I am fairly good cook. I just wish I had more time and a bigger kitchen. My cola and mustard ham with a macaroni cheese side, always goes down a storm.
Any cooking tips?
Buy a slow oven! There’s nothing better than coming home and having a hot meal ready and waiting.
What’s your favourite dish?
It has to be Beef Randang with coconut rice. Yum!
And a drink to go with it?
With Beef Randang there is nothing better than a Chang Beer, but normally I’m a prosecco girl.
Your favourite restaurant in the Sheffield area?
I love VeroGusto on Norfolk Row – perfect for a special occasion.
The Broadfield – cosy, tasty food, friendly service, good choice of drinks, spacious
beer garden, and nearby.
What’s the worst meal you’ve had?
I actually made myself sick after making a fish pie once – maybe I’m not such a good
cook after all?!
And the best?
I love the bottomless brunches at Flesh and Buns in Covent Garden, London.
Your favourite TV cook?
Ken Hom – he’s always smiley.
What do you think of Sheffield as a place to eat out?
It’s great - so diverse that you can have food from all around the world. Some of the small independents, like Wah wahs, offer excellent food and great value.
