"Cooking is essential to everyone's existence and it's the core of my being. At its best, food is sexy, nourishing, sustaining and utterly satisfying. Cooking is an act of love; it's about giving and sharing. "
"Things only change and happen when people are prepared to take risks. You don't get anywhere by sitting back."
"If you're going to do something, make it bloody brilliant. There are different ways that you can feed or share; which is why I write, why I take people travelling, why I have products, why I have a restaurant. It all comes down to being totally passionate about food, caring about every single thing that goes into my mouth and wanting everyone to be like that."
