Recipes

I am inspired by chefs I have worked with; foods I have eaten on my travels; meals my friends and family have cooked for me; and classic dishes that have stood the test of time. I’m also inspired by quality ingredients and vibrant seasonal produce. I’ll often think of recipe combinations that sound delicious to my taste buds as I walk around a food market. I’ll write down my thoughts then I test them out in the kitchen until I’m pleased with the result. I next test the result out on real people for their input. People tell me that they find my dishes original and my flavour combinations exciting – to me, this is the greatest compliment.
