HOW I GOT INTO ALL THIS
A passion for food and the psychology that drives it
I am both a psychologist and a trained chef.
The former was my education when I was entertaining thoughts
of following my grandfather's path as a surgeon before it was abandoned.
The latter I fell into after a health scare that made me re-think life's priorities.
I suffered from anaphylactic allergies as a child and as an adult, was diagnosed with coeliac disease.
I have also recovered from clinical depression and anxiety disorder.
All of those played a part in getting me to where I am now.
I consider it a unique meeting of the stars that my medical studies, my personal health,
my life's work and my life's adventures have come to all this -
an opportunity to do something personally meaningful, joyful and of service to others.
My sincere hope is that I can help you find a measure of joy and comfort in delicious and nourishing food.
If you are one of those able to eat, not just to survive,
I wish for you the gift of recognising how lucky you are.
For everyone else seeking to come to terms with the gift of food, we are here.
Together we will find the food way that is right for you.
