Hi, Thanks for clicking to find my blog, but who am I. Well I’m Vince, a bloke from the North of England; who has been living in Melbourne, Australia since 2001 with my Greek-Australian wife, two sons, and @teddythechocolatehound our dog.
So from the beginning…..born and grew up in a regular family of 5 from the North. “Meat n 3 veg”, no ‘fancy foreign food’, regular Sunday roasts, Stews in winter, salads in summer, fish n chips every Friday, rice was only for puddings, garlic was unknown, olive oil only from the chemist for ear ache, and the fanciest thing on the BBQ was a chicken burger.
At University, all I could remember in my end of second year electronics exam was the recipe for lasagne (when I blog the recipe, I will link it here). Both the lecturer and my tutor were both amazed and impressed that I wrote the full recipe down, and used the supplied graph paper to provide a diagram of the layering, instead of answers to the questions on semi-conductors, Ohmic resistance and whatever else they had set.
Clearly I was destined for other things, and starting at day release catering college, while working in a soup kitchen, where with the help of a couple of great instructors, I was able to first secure a short role in a local seaside hotel, then in a bistro in Windsor, near London.
Umpteen years later and many many kitchens and office roles later, fast forward to now. As I say at the top, I am living in Melbourne and cooking is both a hobby and a profession in a great team in the country. I am also in a position to present a blog about random things I have thought of over these years, with recipes attached. Check the links out, scroll through the blog, browse the equally random Insta and Youtube accounts and please let me know what you think.
