I’ve been pretty busy the last few weeks. I’ve almost finished my second e-recipe book and I did my first Berlin workshop over the weekend (with plenty more scheduled).

As a result of moving countries, I’ve had to spend quite some time building up kitchen equipment and supplies which is time consuming and expensive. I’ve got things second hand where I can, t’s not always viable but we’ve had some really good successes with finding some of the things that we need at good prices.

Hopefully I will get enough workshop bookings over the coming months to make the costs worth while, I really enjoy teaching cooking, it’s always great fun to get back in the kitchen in front of a class.

Things I’ve been looking at and reading:
