Hello, it’s me! I hope to give you a quick guide to my blog, what to expect, who I am, and why on earth you should spend your valuable time listening to a random stranger behind a keyboard.

My favourite thing in the whole world?  Food!

As of writing this, I am 22 years old and weigh 288lbs. That’s just under 21 stone for those that prefer the imperial system. My blood pressure is higher than it should be, and I should really stop taking my life for granted. I’m at that age where things can start to get very serious very quickly. My Grandma (bless her cotton socks) is diabetic, my Granddad has heart problems, my Father is also diabetic, carrying bodyweight in excess of what our doctors deem normal (by the way, I’ll get to that at some point). Even I am morbidly obese and verging on hypertension.

I don’t want these problems to become the reason I stop loving food. So I’ve created this blog to help me and any readers that stumble across me, find ways to become healthy, but still maintain a positive relationship with food.

I’ve held pretty much every job in the hospitality interest, and yes, customers are annoying. I’ve been a bartender, a mixologist, a waiter, a housekeeper, a coffee maker, a shop assistant, a glass collector, and even a ‘sandwich artist’ (I can already feel another post coming on the subject of how absurdly ridiculous and ironic that title is). Don’t get me wrong, Subway is nice, I like sandwiches as much as the next guy, but I didn’t enjoy a single minute working there, or any one of these jobs as you can probably imagine.

That is… until I got into the food game.

I’ve been a chef for the last year, and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon. Okay, I may not be Joe Bastianich or Zumbo, but cooking is what I do best. From picking up ten cookbooks from my Dad’s friend’s table top sale for £5, to learning how to make curry from scratch from my African-raised Mother-in-law.

To Sum Up

I’m  a food fanatic in a world full of the stuff. My excitement, passion and drive to learn as much as there is to know about will hopefully be enough to keep you coming back and riding out this journey together. And it all starts with my chopping board.

Now… let’s get in the mood for food!
