I have spent the last 15 years diligently working and studying as I completed my training to become a specialist physician. But my love of food and my yearning to cook has been put on the back burner and, for the last 18 months in particular, I have looked forward to my monthly foodie fix as I pored over your glossy pages. Thank you for providing me with a monthly reminder that there is life after exams!
I look forward to catching up on 18 months’ worth of TASTE recipes by starting my festivities with your October birthday issue’s celebration cakes!
