Originally from Cornwall, England, the first part of my childhood was spent in the tranquility of the Cornish countryside, where i suppose i had my first experiences of cooking, baking cakes and pasties with my Grandmother. The rest i spent growing up in grimy North West London where I regularly cooked dinner for all the family as my parents would arrive home late from work. My mum would leave the instructions on how to cook meals such as spaghetti bolognase, liver & belly pork with mash & onion gravy, lasagne, and of course the great British classic: The Roast Dinner, apart from other things. It was there in London that i first acquired a taste for the more exotic foods. My best friend at primary school was Indian and we, very happily, would exchange whatever delicacies our mothers had put in our luch boxes everyday, my boring old cheese and marmite or sandwhich spread sandwhiches for her delightfully spicy and way more intersting parathas, pakoras, samosas or bhajis.
Since then i have travelled for a decade mostly in India, South East Asia and Europe before coming to México where i now live with mi amor and our two naughty chihuahuas.
I have tried to be as clear as possible in the recipes and include everything you need to be able to follow the instructions and have a good result even if you don’t normally spend much time in the kitchen. I don’t like to spend hours preparing fiddly stuff (except maybe for a special occasion now and then), but i like to make and eat delicous and healthy food, so i try to keep it as simple as possible, full of flavour, natural goodness and love!
