Healthy eating is compatible with enjoyable, day-to-day life. Life is too short to deprive yourself of the pleasures of good food and drink. I hope this blog will help you see that food and drink can be indulgent, delicious, satisfying and nutritious.

I strongly believe that it is important both for the planet, and for our own wellbeing, to try to eat seasonal, local foods as much as possible. Of course, it’s not always possible to do this, and many of the recipes I use require the addition of exotic or recherché ingredients, and that is fine from time to time. It is good to be aware of the origins of the produce you use, though. Exercise your choice to buy British; supermarkets are now good at labelling the origin of their produce; go to your local greengrocer and tell him you want to buy British or try your local Farmer’s Market. Find out where your meat comes from and buy the best you can afford,  organic if you can. It is better for your health.
