At last

Steve's PictureMy Philosophy


If you’re like me you take one look at a recipe, see all those weights and measures and ---just close the book.

I mean all you want to do is eat something bearable, maybe even enjoyable, right?

Really, it’s mainly yourself you’re cooking for remember.

Guests, what are they?

OK, OK, in time maybe. Meanwhile let’s look after No.1

Now me. I’m a strapping lad, so all the defiance of all that is sacred in cooking etiquette, hasn’t done me any harm!

Have faith; trust me!
