Do you have a fail-safe dinner party recipe?
In the past I have made Margaritas so that everyone’s too drunk to care and then just served a mountain of nachos, because it’s my favourite – in short, no.
What is your go-to cookbook?
Levi Roots, Carribean Food Made Easy – I do love a good curry goat.
What food blogs do you enjoy reading?
Anything that doesn’t include ‘food hacks’ – nobody wants to try your strange cheese-drenched loaf of bread that you hollowed out and slightly overcooked while hung over.
How do you like your eggs?
Scrambled with a sprinkle of chipotle chilli and salt and served on a nice slab of bread.
Who would you invite to your dream dinner party?
A select few of my favourite friends – if you knew them you’d understand – and my partner, of course, who would end up doing most of the cooking.
Do you have a kitchen gadget you just can’t live without?
I have a Dutch poffertje (miniature pancake) pan that my mum bought me for Christmas, and I keep meaning to use it. I will use it, I promise!
What is your culinary guilty pleasure?
I have no guilt and no shame, but I love eating caramel digestive biscuits sandwiched with peanut butter in the middle.
And your most-hated food?
I don’t really like beetroot, but hate is a very strong word. I’d still eat it if I was hungry.
What has been your most memorable dining experience?
When I was quite young I went to Amsterdam and tried Lebanese food for the first time. I remember just being in awe of the flavour combinations and the freshness of everything.
