Eclectic Quiz Night



My passion for food started when I held my first baby. Having devoured all books on what nutrients to offer the little one, I realised that I knew nothing of what we were being fed. This search for knowledge carried on well after my decades working in the music industry, when I started producing and selling preserves, for I would research each produce for its nutritional health and its history down the ages; in short, I fancied myself to be a food detective.

In a Nutshell

My passion for food started when I held my first baby. Having devoured all books on what nutrients to offer the little one, I realised that I knew nothing of what we were being fed. This search for knowledge carried on well after my decades working in the music industry, when I started producing and selling preserves, for I would research each produce for its nutritional health and its history down the ages; in short, I fancied myself to be a food detective.

The Whole Hog

Books are on the shelves, background music is great and the food is to be shared. A general knowledge quiz throughout dinner will get the winner a lovely bottle of wine to take home. What's not to love?

My cultural heritage is Lebanese and though I favour it above all else, I love Peruvian and Thai cuisines. Having never liked the idea or taste of meat, I was very lucky at a very early age to be around a huge selection of vegetarian food. My cooking is simple yet delicious; it’s highly nutritious and carefully chosen - if a produce lacks vibrancy, it stays on the shelf; if it originates from a GMO-friendly country, it gets ignored.

Extensive travel has broadened my culinary horizons and reinforced my belief that you cannot get to know a people’s culture without a visit to the market for the smells, the sights, the sounds. My diet has been a vegetarian one for over 27 years, I am currently a 54-year old going on 17 and I learn about foodstuff every single day.
