We live in a flat; my wife would be happy if we had a house with stairs. Or a little cottage in the country. ---->>>

A pig's trotter is a fantastic thing. The first night of my honeymoon in Paris, my wife fell asleep in her steak tartare, so my trotter kept me company. ---->>>

I think Isambard Kingdom Brunel would be a good chap to have supper with. Anyone who builds a railway and then builds a steamship when he gets to Bristol and can't go any further must be a good chap. ---->>>

What worries me is that, because of the amount of media coverage of food, Britain seems to have become a foodie nation - but I'm not sure it actually has. I'm not sure there's been a huge change in the pantry at home or what we cook for supper. ---->>>

I had a holiday job in a kitchen, but I think we'll draw a polite veil over that. There was nothing joyous or creative about it. And none of this helped my studies. ---->>>

My first proper kitchen was this funny little club that we set up in Mercer Street in Covent Garden. It got shut down. Then I worked at a club in Notting Hill. ---->>>

I cook British food, but it doesn't mean I'm jingoistic about it. People can cook very good fusion food. ---->>>

I feel good when I stir something with a spurtle, but I don't make porridge very much in London. ---->>>

I'm a big believer that we get the politicians we deserve. ---->>>

Porridge and the urban lifestyle don't mix well. ---->>>
