I love cooking...
Anything from thai curry to hand made fresh pasta...
I hate cleaning up the mess tho, that sucks!

I can cook chicken breasts/rice, Pasta Bake, curry, potatoes and can order take away!
I tried adding a bit of olive oil to a tin of chopped tomatoes. Did wonders!
I cook from fresh every night, and find it really relaxing. I tend to do quick stuff during the week, and then more complicated longer stuff at the weekend.
I buy only meat from my regular butcher, the award winning Woods Butchers in Farnborough, as the quality is first class and my mate Rob owns it and gives me a good deal, keeps me some good cuts, has some great marinades, lets me try freebies he's cooking for the lads out back, gives great cooking tips, and always can get me in something different.
I buy organic, sustainable, British, free range, ethical too. It tastes better, in my opinion, and leaves me with a clear conscience.
My favourite recipes have to come from either Bill Granger, who's recipes always taste so 'alive', 'fresh' and are very healthy...or Nigel Slater, who's the master of the quick fix!
I subscribe to 'Delicious' and 'Good Food' mags too, great source of new stuff. I also find it relaxing to read cook books...learning...even my manager Jeroen who is a great cook has a cook book on the market, lots of good stuff in there! Tom, Jeroen found out that I rolled my own pasta and used some wooden rolling pin techniques to make my tagliatelle, and brought me a pasta machine over for me when he came over for my last Cage Rage! Top fella! Brought me a mushroom brush too!!
Mind you, sometimes my missus thinks I'm a bit mad...comes down and finds me making a stack of jams and compotes on a sunday morning...and I always push her for a mark out of 10 for what I make...
Yep, I'm a foodie!
Love to cook. Like Gary, I cook from fresh for me and the girlfriend every night, keep it relatively simple during the week but like to try more complicated, and new stuff at the weekend when ive got more time.
Really enjoy learning new techniques, and using new ingredients.
I am(probably quite arrogantly) applying for Masterchef lol
