I live mostly in a small kitchen, which is in Oxford. By day I work in publishing and by night I’m working my way through my cookbook collection, from A-Z: one week, one book. This blog came in at G. I like lists and I can’t handle spontaneity, although I’m working on that too. My favourite things to eat include: anything salty or garlicky, anything with beans or pulses, cake, bread, and dough in all its forms, and pretty much anything of a middle eastern origin: pistachios, cardamom, tahini, rosewater, dates…if a recipe has one of those things, I will inevitably put a post-it note on it.
When I’m not in the kitchen, I might be teaching yoga, forming strong opinions about books, or trying to pretend I know what I’m doing on my allotment.
