MasterChef 2017 Finalist
I’ve been cooking for myself since I was about 15, my mum was working full time when I was at school so I would cook for myself when I got home. I think I really discovered how much I enjoyed food and cooking in my early 20s - I loved cooking for friends and family and got more and more adventurous in the kitchen the older I got. I now enjoy quite technical cookery.
There is definitely a similarity between what I do for a living and my cooking. As a sound engineer I am always dealing with both the scientific and creative sides of music and music production. I think this is also reflected in the food I like to cook; I love thinking up new dishes or thinking of ways to play with flavour combinations and textures of classics. I enjoy the science and precision involved in the more modernist style of cooking, but still love the simplicity of good ingredients and classic cookery.
