I live in a beautiful bungalow built for us to my design, and the kitchen is wonderful. I love cooking and concocting new recipes. I used to decorate cakes (wedding cakes and celebration cakes) as a hobby. I am a great fan of Rick Stein and his fish cookery books. Since being widowed in 2004, I am finding it difficult to cook small amounts, but still enjoying culinary adventures. I also enjoy having friends round for a Raclette evening where they all get to try something different as they are rarely found in the UK.
