Childhood food memory >>
Spending some of my youth in Persia I remember eating a national dish called “Ghormeh Sabzi” which is a traditional herb stew cooked with kidney beans.
Favourite family dish >>
Unfortunately I have to be clichéd and go with a traditional Sunday roast with all the trimmings.
A meal that inspired you >>
Chez Domonique Helsinki Finland, two Michelin star, held for ten years, since closed. I was inspired by the way traditional Finnish food was interpreted in a contemporary style.
An inspiring drink >>
Iced tomato tea with lemon balm (on our a la carte menu).
Restaurant that you return to time and again >>
Bangkok House Oxford, consistently good food.
Inspirational chef >>
Last food you ate >>
Restaurant Sat Bains in Nottingham.
Favourite food and drink city >>
Seoul, South Korea.
Favourite ingredient >>
At the moment it’s black garlic.
A dish you’d pass on to your children >>
No specific dish, I’d just focus on teaching them how to cook.
