Fastidious about?
Keeping fit and healthy.

I’ve recently mastered…
the best duck liver and cognac pate on earth.

Urban Entertaining has recently launched a home delivery service, Urban @ Home. How did this new project come to fruition?
After several years of being asked by clients, friends and colleagues, we finally thought it was about time we packaged up some of our tasty dishes and made them available for people to have delivered to their homes.

Fish or meat lover?
Both, I love a rare rib eye steak or a rich slow cooked peasant meat dish in the winter. I also adore a deliciously chilled plate of fresh oysters with a simple dressing, or a carpaccio of kingfish with fresh lime and coconut dressing in summer.
My last meal on earth would be….anything with chilli and loads of garlic.

What is your top tip for time poor people that want to create healthy meals at home but feel they don’t have the time?
Make sure you have some Urban@Home meals in your fridge or freezer!

The key to creating healthy, nutritious food that tastes good is….
always use fresh produce, organic if possible making sure you always have herbs, garlic and a good array of spices on hand plus good olive oil.

What are your top kitchen appliances/gadgets or tools?
1. My Thermomix,
2. Global cook’s knife
3. Microplane
4. Super spicy Bloody Mary
5. Some good tunes…not necessarily in that order

When I’m not in the kitchen you’ll find me…
spending time with my family or at the gym.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Twin Palms Phuket. Super relaxing boutique hotel, best Tom Yum on earth, great gym, and secluded private beach with a great sunset beach bar.
