Culinary Anthropologist


The vast majority of recipes on this website are ones which I have developed myself and tested several times. They are usually adaptations of something eaten in a restaurant, cooked in a restaurant, found in a book, learnt at a school, borrowed from a colleague, encountered on travels or remembered from the past. Feedback on all recipes is much appreciated – so that they can be improved.

You can browse or search by type of dish, country of origin or season.
