Okay so seven things about myself
1, My father is half English half Italian and my mother is Indian. I was brought up in a house with the most delicious food from these countries and it probably started my love affair and passion for food.
2, I left school at 16 to study at catering college, after a year on a professional chefs diploma course I did business studies (with the intention of opening my own eating establishment) and then onto university to study Baking technology management Bsc. I am in my third and final year now.
3, My favourite colour is red. To the point I’m a bit obsessed with anything red :)
4, I love travelling. I want to travel around the world. I love trying new and interesting foods and exploring a countries culture.
5, I started reading the hobbit and Lord of the rings with my dad when I was about 9 and didn’t finish till I was about 14. My favourite book and I think the films are pretty good too. Love it!
6, I am the youngest of 3 daughters and my sisters are my best friends in the world.
7, If I had to choose 5 desert island dish’s, that I would live on for the rest of my life i would have:
– Mums chicken soup, It’s full of veg, ginger and dumplings. Completely delicious.
– Nicoise salad, I love this salad, its perfectly filling and fresh but not too heavy.
– Egg and tomato, a lovely garlicy tomato sauce, the eggs are poached in the sauce and served runny on toast to soak up all the juices.
– Salt beef bagels, the stuffed to brim with salt beef kind, mustard and pickled ccumber.
– Crispy aromatic duck with pancakes. Crunchy, crispy and succulent duck with plum sauce cucumber and sweet pickles.
