I love to cook and experiment with food and flavours. This started whenI was on a very low calorie restricted diet for a little while and needed a way to jazz up the chicken and salad/vegetables I was allowed to eat for dinner. I discovered Recipezaar and some cooking magazines and now it's a passion. I am slowly amassing a nice library of cookbooks (in fact, I've promised my boyfriend I won't buy another one for six months because I've gone a little crazy), but my favourites would have to be by Nigella Lawson. I also like Bill Granger, Neil Perry and Giada Di Laurentiis. Celebrity chefs/cooks unite!! My non-celebrity chef favourites are a tired little copy of Easy Italian, The Mediterrasian Way and anything by Marcella Hazan.
