Ever since I was young I've always been fascinated with food - whether it was making marmalade with my Nan and Grandad or fudge with my Granny. I've always realized it was food that brought my family and friends closer together. I often hear people say that they don't have the time to cook. Well, actually, a good home cooked meal can take less time than waiting for a take-in pizza! And be a lot more fun. It's one of life's great pleasures.
