I fell in love with Ital­ian cui­sine long be­fore I met my Ital­ian girl­friend...

Do you do a lot of cook­ing? What are your favourite flavours to cook with?

The flavours of Italy are def­i­nitely my ab­so­lute favourite to work with. My girl­friend is Ital­ian, but I’ve al­ways loved Ital­ian food – in fact, I fell in love with Italy be­fore I fell in love with her you could say! The two el­e­ments com­bined have just height­ened my un­der­stand­ing and love for the foods and flavours of Italy. With Ital­ian food, the dishes are so sim­ple yet so clever. You don’t need a lot of in­gre­di­ents or tools to make a de­li­cious meal and Ital­ian cook­ing rep­re­sents that in my eyes.

What’s your favourite Ital­ian dish?

My ab­so­lute favourite is a well-known Ital­ian dish called Vitello Tonnato. It sounds hor­ri­ble, but ba­si­cally it’s a piece of cold sliced veal with a creamy sauce that is flavoured with tuna which is spread over the top. A few capers are then added and it’s of­ten served with some crispy fried onions. It’s my all time favourite, it’s ab­so­lutely de­li­cious – if you like Ital­ian food, it’s def­i­nitely one to try.
