“The simple act of making someone something to eat, even a bowl of soup or a loaf of bread, has a many-layered meaning. Sharing food suggests an act of protection and caring, of generosity and intimacy. It is in itself a sign of respect.”    Nigel Slater

I have spent over twenty years cooking, from the burnished glow of London private dining rooms to flapping canvas at a muddy festival.  Whether you're eating your food with antique silver or a wooden fork, a good meal has the magical capacity to raise a smile, restore your balance and revive a flagging spirit.  I firmly believe that food nourishes the soul just as much as it does the body and I try to cook with as many seasonal, local ingredients as possible.  Of course, there are times when nothing but a fishfinger sandwich will do, but for the other times, sit back, relax and wait for something utterly delicious to be delivered to your door from bristolKTCHN.
