Are you the cook at home ?

No, my husband Jairo is the best cook ever and I could not even begin to compete, that said I have my favourite recipes that he likes and during lockdown we have tried some new dishes.

We always try and make a Saturday night dinner more of an event, we will normally do three courses with a nice wine.


Top comfort food ?

Jalapeno Macaroni and Cheese with Moroccan Breadcrumbs on top. 

Pudding or cheese ?

I love both ! That's a really difficult choice. But if there's a crumble on the dessert menu, that's what its going to be. 

Who's invited to your dream dinner party ?

What's in your fridge ?

Going to sound a health freak but far from it - Pineapple, Melon, lots of vegetables, yoghurts.

What was food like when you were growing up ?

My father worked on a farm so we had an a constant supply of milk and vegetables, my Mum made the most delicious vegetable soup and rice pudding. 

We did not have much money so it was very plain eating but do recall a treat was an apple pie. 

What do you order in a bar ?

Gin and tonic. If it was pre-dinner drinks somewhere fancy I may look at the gin cocktails. Tranqueray is lovely, or Sipsmith or Bombay Sapphre. 

Top takeaway ?

We are not big fans of takeaways  but have been known in the past to use an Indian in Tooting called Lahore Karahi  - fantastic.

It would be no more than six people as not a big party fan, Princess Diana is on my list along with ........

Tea or Coffee ?

I only drink fresh coffee and one a day - my tea should be strong with milk, no sugar, a favourite tea is Earl Grey.

Any foods that I avoid ?

Fish that needs peeled such as prawns, crab, lobster.
