I'm an enthusiastic amateur cook, wife, mother, yogaphile, runner and big fan of dance. I grew up in London, but have been living in Madrid for the last four years with my Spanish husband and two Spanish/English/Chinese boys. We have a fun, hectic family life which involves lots of marble cake, homemade biscuits, Victoria sponge, curry, tofu stir-fries, and the occasional Spanish tortilla which infiltrates my mainly Asian-influenced cuisine.
My cookbook collection is gradually spiralling out of control. I call my bedside reading material "gastro-porn", being as it is a mountain of cookery books, a pile of Bon Apetit and Delicious monthly magazines. Every now and again, I escape back to London to attend a knife skills or a sauces workshop at Leiths School of Food and Wine. But my weakness is sweet things: cakes, sponges, tiramisus, cheesecakes, meringues ..... mmm!
I've just started building a website dedicated to recipes I cook and would love to cook - I'll post my website as soon as it's fit to publish!
