There is a Spanish saying, cada cabeza es un mundo, which loosely means that every person's mind is a whole world, nay, a whole universe, unto itself...

This phrase neatly expresses my cooking philosophy. I believe that every time you prepare a meal, you bring the unique flavours of all that you are - the heritage of your past and the creativity in your present - to the dishes that you enjoy, celebrate and share with others, bringing a bit of you to every plate you serve.

I have always loved journeying through other people's worlds via their food. It is what I find most exciting about cookery, this delicious thread that binds us all.

From the spoonfuls lovingly fed to me as a child, enchantingly spiced by lands and generations that were not my own, to the hours spent sitting as a young girl poring over cookery books that offered a fascinating glimpse of how others eat, to the new ingredients and recipes that I discover, enriching my every day with a sense of delight. All gratefully absorbed into my palate and kitchen, to be rewoven by my own hands into the tapestry of dishes I cook for myself and those I feed. And so the cycle continues...

Food is a subject that encompasses many things and inspires impassioned opinions. So many views on what is right or wrong, superior or disdained but, for me, it is simply about creating the food you love, whatever it may be, with and for the people you love.

Eat and let eat.
