I'm originally English, but now Anglo-Canadian and have recently moved from the UK to the Bahamas where my husband is presently working. I'm not allowed to work here, so my hobbies are taking first place - and with more time to play with, cooking has become a pleasure, not a burden - hoorah! Cooking style-wise I'm a product of Delia Smith and Good Housekeeping, but more recently I have adopted a simpler approach to food, in line with my need to keep fat and calories to a reasonable level. I lost about 40lb on a low-fat, calorie controlled diet two years ago and have managed to keep the weight off since then - for the first time in my life I feel I am in control of my weight!
One of the advantages - I feel - of living in the Bahamas is that there is a limited range of pre-prepared food on sale in the stores. It's much harder to cheat and buy something quick to eat that tastes good, compared to in the UK where you are totally bombarded in all the foodstores with delicious ready-made meals at LOW prices - but HIGH fat and calorie counts. This is one of the reasons the country is getting obese ... I could go on at length at how the food industry is destroying the health of the nation, but hey, that's my pet peeve. That's what pets are for...
I suppose if I'm "famous" for anything it's for my lasagne - I love to experiment with different variations. Also my kids have always loved my roast potatoes! I love to cook just about anything, I like to experiment and although I often use recipes for inspiration I always change them as I go along, using experience to adjust flavours to my own preferences. I think of cooking as another type of creative art - it can't be a coincidence that we talk about the palette of flavours as well as colours. My favourite restaurant - has to at be the Fairmont Southampton in Bermuda, where the Waterlot Inn produced the best brunch I have ever eaten the Sunday after the hurricane hit in 2003!! Talk about strength in the face of adversity! (They also have the BEST oysters I've ever eaten!)
