I find cooking very relaxing and love to experiment. My food hero is Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall; the idea of growing your own veg and rearing your own animals in a free-range, organic way is very appealing.
When not cooking I work from home for a tech company in Finland, love animals, old cars, travel and good restaurants!
How I rate recipes:
5 * Recipe worked perfectly, no substitutes needed and family raved about it.
4 * Recipe worked well, a few substitutes were made to suit taste. Family loved it.
3 * Recipe worked fairly well, a few changes to technique or substitutions were needed. Family liked it.
2 * Recipe didn't work particularly well. It was edible but wouldn't cook again.
1* Recipe didn't work at all. It wasn't edible and we wouldn't cook again.

I love seafood, in almost any form! Food from the far East; Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese and Malay come very high on my list of loves, as do spices! I still have a soft spot in my heart for the good old English recipes handed down through the family as well as classic French cookery.
Favourite restaurants include Rules of London; an ancient English restaurant (everyone from Charles Dickens to Charlie Chaplin to King Edward VII have eaten there) with a tradition of game cooking - the game coming from the restaurant's own Scottish estate. There's a wonderful little seafood restaurant near where I live now called The Marsh Cat and I could happily eat their Cajun dishes all day long!
