Describe yourself in three words … passionate, fun, adventurous.
Christmas to me means … family time, presents for my daughter, and sleeping in the afternoon following a big Christmas lunch cooked by mum. Well, me now, as I’m the chef. Ha ha.
My favourite place to spend Christmas is … somewhere with snow.
My favourite Christmas memory is … Italy four years ago, chalet in the mountains with friends.
My signature Christmas dish is … Guinea fowl, parsnip, beetroot and miso, Brussels sprouts and white pudding with a whisky sauce.
My New Year’s resolution is … See more of the world and try more cuisines of the world.
