Do you have a fail-safe dinner party recipe?
Thai fishcakes. They look and taste impressive, but they’re super simple and very quick to whip-up!

Who is your favourite TV chef and why?
Nige’ – she gets a 10/10 for use of foodie adjectives.

What is your go-to cookbook?
Jamie Oliver’s 30 Minute Meals – the recipes take me upwards of an hour, but it’s good to have aspirations.

How do you like your eggs?
Poached or scrambled, on a bagel, maybe a little sliver of smoked salmon and a smattering cracked black pepper?

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party?
Sigourney Weaver and the ghost of J.R.R. Tolkien.

If I gave you £10 to spend on any food you like, what would you buy?
A wedge of Brie, a good chunk of halloumi and a piece of goat’s cheese. If there was anything left over, a camembert to bake. Love a good cheese board!

Do you have a kitchen gadget you just can’t live without? Or one you’ve never used?
The pineapple cutter. It’s revolutionary. Perfect rings of pineapple and a hollowed-out outer bit that you can freeze and serve drinks in!

What has been your most memorable dining experience?

Working for a while in Vietnam meant for a lot of very memorable dining experiences, but going on a street-food-crawl of all of Hi Chi Minh’s best roadside food vendors has to be up there – “Vietnamese pizza” is the best!

Can you recommend any must-visit food shops, festivals or markets?

The Anglesey Oyster Festival is a massively underrated date in the foodie calendar. There’s some great North Welsh produce available, and it never fails to descent into a booze-up.
