Interests - Cooking - why I enjoy it
I love food. The therapy of selecting fruit, vegetables and herbs
in a market, planning a dinner party and cooking.
“Comfortable in the grand manner, stuffed with plutocratic
goodies and a decent duck. A dining room boudoiresque, fin-de-siècle,
eclectic and still fashionably uncomfortable. A mélange,
possibly a post-Orwellian version of an Edwardian eatery. The
food, ecumenical in flavour, a cosmopolitan adventure of exuberant
eclecticism, full of amuse guelle and gastrocredibility. No flash
in the bain-marie this. A comforting air, though generally the
tomatoes were rather palpeuse”.
