Are you a cook?

I do enjoy cooking and like to think I’m relatively good at it.

Any cooking tips?

I have heard if you chop onions with a wooden spoon in your mouth you’ll avoid tearing up.

What’s your favourite dish?

Thai green curry beats them all.

And a drink to go with it?

Depends how spicy the curry - I go for mild to medium and find fruity rose refreshing.

Your favourite restaurant in the Sheffield area?

The Grind, Kelham Island - their home made organic food is phenomenal.

Their Spanish meatballs are fantastic and at lunchtime sausage roll are to die for.

And pub?

Nottingham House, Broomhill, is great for pie lovers looking for a hearty meal.

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

Steak covered in cinannom. Long story short - a friend was new to cooking and got overly excited about his new spice rack.

And the best?

So far, the best meal I’ve had was during my travels.

Authentic Hungarian cuisine was one of the best.

Your favourite TV cook?

Mary Berry - she’s funny!

all, witty and shares my passion for baking.

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

I think its great.

There are lots of places to choose from all around the city to suit anyone’s taste.
