For me, cooking is...
in the heart and in the soul, rather than in pure skills and technique
I learned to cook at...
home and at a gazillion masterclasses around the world over a space of more than 35 years.
A role model in the kitchen is...
anyone that treats quality ingredients with the care, skill and inspiration they deserve
A cooking secret...
is to take classic flavour combinations from various cuisines to creative new heights without being overly fancy
